Soon, things will quieten down and I won’t have so much to choose from each week. Hopefully, I will be able to show you some on the pictures we’ve taken over the last month or so while the natural world has been going at full tilt. There is a nice picture of the rabbit warren where I thought I glimpsed someone sitting outside in the sun, I pointed and clicked, just in case – and the picture turned out to have five rabbits in when I looked at it later.
Then, there are a couple of the flowers that Dr Edward Bach used to make his flower essences from, White Chestnut for people who find their thoughts stray off topic too easily and who need to focus and Oak for people who face a long struggle against the odds to win through. A bit like The Little Engine Who Could.
Which brings me on to the excitement of this week, firstly our cows have returned from their winter sojourn to the lap of luxury. I have to confess, with apologies to any bovine reading this, but I don’t recognise any of them. Jackie assures me that they are the same cows though, so that’s that. Secondly, and of much greater import, a real train on our line.
Our embankment is part of the long climb out of Carlisle, over the top, to Newcastle – I’m sure that a few drops of Oak wouldn’t have come amiss.
