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

Beauty and the Beast


Just thirty miles away, from the atrocities of the Manchester bombing.  A  limestone dale,  full of beautiful flowers, birds and tranquillity. Bathed in sunshine.

The path through the daisies, led us on, deeper into  thought, and deeper into the dale.

But we can’t comprehend.  Stand together Manchester

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. There is healing in Nature. The U.K. is in our thoughts and prayers.

  2. I enjoyed your pictures a lot and agree with your sentiments.

  3. Good post and pictures. xx

  4. Beautiful photos, Mrs. UHDD. My thoughts are with those in Manchester. I can’t comprehend it, either.

  5. It is horrific. I heard someone from there say today on radio, “This is the new normal, and we must get used to it.” I disagree, vehemently. But those discussions can wait. Just now, the healing offered by nature seems a worthy balm — and your photos are lovely.

Come on, join in.
