A Real Treat……

Whilst we all try to manage the best we can in these strange times in which we live, it is the little things that seem to matter the most.

One of the things we have missed the most, is being able to see our Grandchildren and Great Grandchildren growing up. 

So a surprise visit from Great Granddaughter Esmee was a real treat.  With visits being so far apart it is always a surprise to see just how fast they grow.

It was only a short visit but created more memories to cherish…

In these difficult times, memories are so important.  

For the sake of everyone…..

Please Remember ….

Moody Monday…… The Birch on the Moor

Stanton-Moor--autumnal-tint

Followers will know of my love of Silver Birch.  This stand of Birch on the heights and open windswept expanse of Stanton Moor were most definitely one of my favourites.  Sadly when we visited a week ago, the Birch were gone.  In the early spring, it lost one of its multi trunks in those storms that past swiftly across the moor. The remaining  trunks failed to stand the pressures of  the September gales.

No longer will this iconic landmark grace the horizon of  the Moor.

Please Remember ….
