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

Frosty Delights


We’ve no sign of frost  here at the moment, a promising  bright morning gave way to a wet and windy afternoon; we’ve lit the fires and opened the chocolates, nobody is moving far or fast.

These images have been waiting in the wings for a couple of weeks.

The holly ( a male,  which is a shame, red berries would have been nice)

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.
