All the rain that we didn't get in April and May seems to have fallen in June instead. I managed a final sunny walk before the weather broke, but it's been mostly damp, grey, overcast, and misty ever since. This was briefly punctuated by a couple of short spells of very hot, humid days, which … Continue reading June Landscapes
Yes, I realise I'm a day late with this. Anyone else having problems remembering what day it is? Anyway, here's some Queen Anne's lace.
The Covid19 movement restrictions were eased in England this month, so I have been able to venture slightly further afield on my walks and bike rides.

With yet another storm approaching at the weekend, I decided to take advantage of a break in the weather today, and head out from Alwinton up Clennell Street, cut across to Copper Snout, … Continue reading A Snowy Walk
