tomorrow we leave for the annual pilgrimage to the Lakes, via Hodgkinson's

there will be tranquility, flowing water, hills, trees, clumps of walkers, great great space and quiet. I'm hoping we are strong enough to walk through some of it this year, but my feet aren't too robust at the moment, and neither is my good soul's knee

today there were
seagulls wheeling

the faintest of ice~bows

piles of light

far flying

crows heading for their roosts
and the wind rushed about the world, tossing the treetops, flinging leaves through the air, 
while a thrush really did sing, just before the storm swept almost horizontally across the landscape, washing the sun drenched fields
and a rainbow
leapt into the sky
and mirrored itself, just for us, because were were there

I may be off line for a while, but I promise I'll be enjoying myself


  1. Ohh, wonderful skies and clouds !!!
    And that (double) rainbow !

    (I know about the pruning: have to do that myself in my tiny garden, but I thought they would remove the trees altogether !!!)

    1. The rainbow gave itself to me literally as I was writing the post, very generous of Mother nature. As for your willows - I tend to think removal of all trees should be banned, so can appreciate the horror of the thought!!

  2. Have a great time in Cumbria, one of my favourite places. The hotel looks super!

  3. Hope your had a great time on your trip. Nice pictures.


  4. your sky is beautiful and so are the stones you sent, thank you.

    1. Hi Jude, so glad they got to you safe and sound

  5. Hi Anna and Bean,
