Beautiful light this morning revealed the Hellvellyn range in all its Winter glory. So nice to be up in the fells, only saw 2 other walkers and we had the summit of Place Fell to ourselves. It was my partner's birthday today and she had a wonderful time taking pictures of the glorious surrounding.

Hi Fairygirl, yes just a rainbow when it was snowing. Love your pics of the Scottish hills, we're going to the Glencoe area at the end of June, my better half is a keen photographer so it's a dream of an area for her.

Hi Joyce,Busy. Yes we're in the Lake District for a week. Floss is with us Joyce and loving the mountains. Beautiful weather this morning followed by a mini blizzard half way up the fell followed by a snowbow on the way down.

After 2 days of heavy rain and wind we managed to get into the fells above Patterdale. The day started well with a red squirrel running along the wall outside the house we're staying in

Lovely picture Logan, we met a lovely Goldie pup this afternoon, at 4 months old he was already bigger than Floss.

What is your weather like? (2)

Another day for testing the waterproofs. Keeping to low level walks as it's still very windy on the hills and low visibility. Our Border Collie loves it though and we've seen some lovely drifts of Snowdrops. Just got in from our morning walk and the heavens have truly opened now! 

New allotment OMG...Part 2...

Similar problem on our site Terry, only about 60% are taken. Our site is clay so takes a lot of work to get it established but it's fertile soil and most crops flourish. I think it's a combination of lack of free time, other distractions and as a society we have got used to 'instant impact'. When people realise it might be 2 or 3 years before you get consistent results they lose interest. 

I'm very lucky in that my allotment is only 200 yds from my house, almost all the worked plots are people who live within walking distance.
