Common Field Daisy, Bellis perennis.  One of the many pink tinged Field Daisies we have here at the Cottage.

I could blame the Covid19 lockdown, but no I was just playing with new photo editing software.

I took this photo on the only snow day this winter, in the fields next to the Cottage.

Out with the dogs this afternoon and spotted this gate lying in in one of the local fords. Thought the angles and colours were interesting enough for a photo.

After days of wet and dreary weather, I was greeted with blue skies and a light frost this morning. The ice of the car windscreen was quite beautiful.

Hexham Abbey

I had a few moments to walk around the beautiful Hexham Abbey yesterday.

Ash Tree

This Ash Tree came down in the field a few years as ago and the trunk left as a seat beside the Burn. I occasionally stop and take pictures of the changes as it dries and of the moss and fungi that grow on it. The other day I noticed the capillaries on the sawn end. Quite beautiful.

I think for the first time ever, I found this three headed Self Heal on the scrub banks above our little burn.  Looks just like a beautiful little candelabra.....
