Watendlath Beck at Mossmire Bridge, Ashness Fells, Cumbria
Sunday and the last day of January…..in theory the worst ravages of winter should be over. Well that’s the theory but this year has not gone to any seasonal plan that I have every experienced. So whilst many bulbs are starting to shoot and birds seem in spring like mode we may yet be in for a sorry winter awakening .
But that shouldn’t deter us from relaxing in quiet contemplation, thinking of those summer days ahead and making plans to visit both the familiar favourites and some pastures new.
