The weather seems set to be rainy all week. I had to go out and deliver a birthday card to my blogging friend Dawn this morning, of Doing It For Ourselves in Wales, so I took some photos on the way.
Here is part of her smallholding, looking very neat and well-tended.
Larch changing colour in the Forest . . .
On the way back down our valley, the little waterfall was back in business. Back in the summer it had dried to a trickle back in the summer as, despite it being cool and miserable, we really didn't have a lot of rain (until August that is!)
It was hurling itself down the steep hillside, and creating so much energy, and so many bubbles, and I couldn't resist a few photos.
This is the steep hillside it hurtles down. It looks very gloomy on such a dull overcast day as this but back in the summer it is a mass of Foxgloves.
This is the lane ahead just past the waterfall. I used to ride along here, but that seems so long ago now.
I mentioned books the other day. This is bedtime reading - the one on the left just finished (and recommended if you haven't already read it) and the Devil's workshop is one of those can't put down books, set in Victorian London at the time of Jack the Ripper . . .
Above and below, last week's library books (to which my current bedtime reading also belongs). Plenty to keep me going for a while.
Finally, Dawn loaned this to me last week, but as it is full of excellent sock patterns, I thought I had better buy my own copy, so I've just bought one on Fleabay.
Today is a catch-up day in this house, so I had better get back to some more catching-up!
