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

Another Sunday Sunrise


another sunday sunrise

Not as threatening as the last one, I’m pleased to say. If you peer closely you can see the rooks flying off to the fields to feed for the day, from their night roost.


We’re told our stormy weather is a result of the polar vortex affecting North America. We are fortunate here at the top of the hill, if water started lapping over our doorstep, we all be doomed, I’m not even sure an ark would suffice.


Heather at Rapid City Recess and I got into an exchange of comments about ice in rivers, not something you see very often in this part of the world.

Heather kindly went to the trouble of tracking down this footage by Ken Scott.

Sit back and enjoy.

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. What this sunrise needs is a Spud 😉
    Thanks for the shout-out. And I’m sure Ken Scott appreciates the share!

  2. I loved your last post about the wool and stroking it 🙂

    Wonderful sunrise ~ what a start to the day! I enjoyed the video of the ice pancakes and nearly became mesmerized. What a strange phenomenon ~

  3. Fascinating! I didn’t know about pancake ice before. Ken Stott made that film Fire and Ice which you shared with us once before. Talented man. Thanks for posting.

  4. Good post, pictures and links. xx

  5. Ken Scott is a national treasure, and a very nice man. I’m beginning to develop a complex about the North American Polar Vortex. I wonder if this is how Canadians feel when we say that we are getting slammed by Arctic blasts pouring out of Canada? Probably. Ah well. Sorry.

Come on, join in.
