I went looking for a picture of crocuses (croci?) which was shown on the BBC Look North weather slot yesterday. I couldn’t find it, but did come across these excellent landscape and weather pics which locals send in to the Beeb. There’s a whole gallery to flick through. And when I came to the pic below it triggered lovely memories; of catching and tacking up our winter hairy ponies and glorious rides through the snow:


Many thanks for a fabulous picture to its creator, Alison Seymour.

We have a sunny day today, albeit a frosty morning, rain tomorrow, then two days of cloud, and then SNOW is forecast for Sunday – the day I was planning to help my sister plant her new hedge around the field. Should be fun.
