Watching nature take its course, from the top of a hill in northern England

Spud on Sunday Part XXVII


Spud frolicking in the cotton grass on the moors, he is in this shot, just follow the lead.

I tried to get him to pose neatly, but it was all far to exciting,

He had to stay on his lead because of nesting birds and because the sign says so. We thought you might like the sign

Watching the rhythm of rural life, from the top of a hill in northern England. Having spent most of my life avoiding writing, I now need to do it! I am no domestic goddess, but if I were expecting visitors to my home, I would whisk round with the duster and plump up the cushions and generally make the place look presentable. I hope that by putting my words where others may see them it will encourage me to ‘tidy up and push the Hoover around’ my writing. On the other hand I may just be adding to the compost heap. Only time will tell! Pull up a chair, sit yourself down, I’ll put the kettle on.

  1. That top photo is brilliant. Took me a minute to spot him, and then orient him in relation to the lead.

  2. The first photo is a bit like the kids’ “Where’s Waldo” books. He looks as though he is enjoying himself as always.

  3. I do like the sign. Also Spud, frolicking.

  4. Be nice to think everyone obeys the sign! Spud having fun always bring a smile!

  5. Heather, I would like to ask you something b/c. Would you be kind enough to e-mail me, so I can?


    And of course I loved the sign, & the sight of Spud frolicking. Spud frolicking always pleasures my heartstrings.

  6. Now THAT’S what I call a sign!

  7. At least it’s a long leash ~ and a substantial sign! Spud is full of life!
