Wednesday






In spite of 'Barney' that storm which has since passed over, Lucy and I went for a walk in the rain along the river.  Should have taken her photo as she trotted behind carrying her lead, no need for recall she stays to heel.  The weather is drear, the countryside echoes it, and even the river is dull, but at least not risen, as the rains have lashed down.
In the second photo down you see an old orchard and some farm buildings, I think this farm is empty but do not have the courage to explore as there maybe farm workers around, there was definitely bullocks around up to a few days ago.
The farm at the end of my walk, is up for sale with a million pound price tag, though not sold.  I find it rather ugly, there are farm buildings and ruins round the farmhouse, but I presume it is the land that is of value.

  1. Yes Thelma, it has been pretty wild up in our neck of the woods hasn't it? At lunch time today we had what really amounted to a cloud burst I think - and just as we had a load of straw delivered.
    I am so glad Lucy has settled in so well - it must give you both such satisfaction.

    1. Lunch time yes it poured heavily here, though it rained all through our walk. Last night it was wild, power disappeared for awhile and I'm surprised to see the trees still standing this morning.

  2. In spite of the gales and rain it looks like you have leaves clinging to the trees. I'm wondering what is the vine clambering up the trees by the river--here we have honeysuckle and trumpet vine which take over anything--even a fence post--which stands still.

    1. It is ivy, that pretty climber that enhances so many old ruined places, and destroys them at the same time! There is of course Old Man's Beard, not seen much around (does not like it up North) and then the aptly named Bindweed, which can smother roadside hedges.
