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

No Rain No Gain


Without copious quantities of rain the Lake District wouldn’t be the Lake District would it.

There wouldn’t be sumptuous moss

Although if the sun shone, the spiders would get out more.

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. Sumptuous moss. Keep on raining!

  2. I presume that it was a wet weekend. Regardless I hope that you enjoyed it. xx

  3. Considering how crowded it is with all the rain, it would be hell if the weather was good.

  4. Liquid sunshine does have its advantages 🙂

  5. A taxonomic point of order: although that is an arachnid, it is not a spider. That there is a harvestman.

  6. rain means home for trout and salmon!

Come on, join in.
