Thoughtful Thursday……. Just wondering ?


Mother Cap on Hathersage Moor, Derbyshire

Spindle like Siver Birch cling onto a fragile life high on the edge of Hathersage Moor. The weathered out crop of rock, known as Mother Cap is one of several that break the  bleak skyline of the moor.

The above image was taken 3 years ago in January, a brief sunny spell in a cold winter….. indeed there were some small remnants remaining, of a brief light fall of snow. much of it hidden in the tough heather that covers these moors.

This year we are again enjoying a brief spell of sunny days,  not sure it will last.  The forecast is for snow to sweep in from the North West.  How deep will it be ? Will it arrive today, tomorrow or give our corner of the country a miss?  Only time will tell.

No matter where you are or whatever your weather…….

Please Remember ….

Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other
