The Cold Facts......

I took this first shot late last evening when I was locking the hens up and feeding the donkeys.  The dogs were tearing round like mad things, looking for rabbits to chase and moles to dig for!

The clear sky an indication of the white frost I woke up to this morning.

Yes, hard frost on 12th of May, it was snowing in Allendale yesterday!  Not unknown up here though, I remember in the late seventies, driving to the station at Hexham through a blizzard on my to college one June evening.  It was a night of contrasts, the train caught fire...!

So we have a new Government, not quite the one were were expecting but it makes a change!  It's works in the two most successful ecconomies in geographic Europe, Germany and The Isle of Man, (the latter despite the previous UK administrations best efforts!)  so why should it not work here?

Lets be totally honest, we don't really have a choice.  Do we.....?


  1. It's true we don't have a choice.

    It's not been so cold here today. I like your description of the journey in the seventies as a night of contrasts! Snow and a train on fire - does sound like it!

  2. Tell the dogs they can come and sort my moles out. Our two are completely useless!

  3. FRost??? It looks beautiful on the plants though!
