A lovely time of the year

Although our movements are restricted nature carries on.
Here's some of the evidence I gathered yesterday walking through my village.






And here we are getting ready for Christmas

Nice place you got there Baz but you need to pick all those dandelion heads off before they seed.

Our magnolia has finished now. I know you are a bit further north but are you also higher? We are about 320(?)m altitude.

I was once in the river in May in the pool just above Greta Bridge - but only long enough to dive in and swim to the bank to get out. My cousin stayed in for 5 minutes but she was well 'covered' so a bit more insulation. Never again for me.


The rowers at Durham University were rowing in Feb below our college and having to dodge the ice floes. - madness.

That will have been the river Greta. Those photos of mine were the Tees. The greta as you will know joins the Tees near where two of those photos were taken. Greta Bridge is just up the road from here. I hadnt considered the Greta. in fact in twenty years of living here, I have never explored it. Im not even sure how accessible it is. I shall have a ride up on the scooter and have a look. As you say though, it will be freezing. I remember swimming in the up Swale as kids which is in the next dale and that was like ice. The Tees at Gainford or High Coniscliffe was where we headed as kids on a hot day. Hours of fun spent riding the rapids on inner tubes or lilos at High Connie.

Looks lovely and peaceful Jan.

There is are a couple of spots on one of my regular bike rides where I just stop and sit and observe the surroundings and sounds. often nothing but the sound of nature. There is often a wood pecker near one of the spots. The sound is amazing as it reverberates across the fields with no other man made sounds to stifle it.
