Storm damage – it must have made a lot of noise when it came down.
A Swan and her eggs.
Is it possible that summer is here at long last ?
The weather is still changeable, it was lovely and sunny two hours ago, but prior to that I got soaked while out shopping. Thunder & lightning with hailstones in the middle of May !!, the sun has a lot to answer for with its sunspot activity, only went for cat food.
Hay-ho, good excuse for a glass of vino and the third book of Freya Stark’s auto biography.

Spring is here at long last and with luck, no more morning frost.
Caught an Ent on the move.
Nature will have its way.
This fence has seen better days.
The snow has gone now, but nice while it lasted.
I spy with my little eye.
No snow falling for the last two days: I remember an old saying among hill farming shepherds from when I was knee high to a grasshopper “if the snow hangs around for more than a couple of days, there will be more” so it’s probably going to stay cold for a while yet.
Been a day of snow, although not much (yet) it has made a change from all the rain.
Remembering summer on a cold and wet day.
There was a church recorded on the site at the time of the Domesday survey in 1086, but was probably in a very neglected state.
This Norman church has almost certainly been here since the beginning of the 12th century: the church taking its present structural form around 1170-1200. Then between 1878 and 1880, extensive restoration was carried out.
The parish register includes baptism registers 1556-1980; marriage registers 1556-1993; burial registers 1556-1955.
Where have all the people gone?
