The removal van is coming today and we'll be packed up and ready to go about this time tomorrow.

Rafe - Evening on Bee Dale Top, Wykeham Forest (SE950866)

The sun is shining (although the forecast isn't good) and the woods are beautiful, in their summer exuberance (I know, seriously naff, but I'm feeling a little emotional !!).

Goodbye to my beautiful Hal.

Hal and Rafe, Bluebell Wood, Wykeham Forest (SE951864)

 Hal died at ten to ten last night, Wednesday, 20th June 2012.

Happy Hal

He had a virulent unexplained infection which carried him away from us in just 24 hours.

Diamond Jubilee

We thought it was tasteful and understated !!

Red, white and blue ribbons by the gate

The 4th was also a glorious full moon.

Falling Foss, North York Moors National Park.

May Beck, near Falling Foss (NZ890032)

A walk in the woods around Falling Foss on a glorious day, followed by some lunch at the always beautiful Midge Hall Tea Garden, beside Falling Foss itself. Bliss.
