Log Delivery.

MY PENNINE WAY PICTURE FOR TODAY
Stoodley Pike, is a land mark that is seen for miles around unless like me you're out walking in the fog and rain. It stands 120 feet high and was constructed to commemorate the peace of Ghent the abdication of Napolean in 1814.

Looking back to Stoodley Pike after the rain.

Where is this Pennine Way? Do you live near it now? How many miles long is it? Oops, I guess you'll give me that in kilometers!

I can convert it! I'm good at math.

Hello Bob,
Just stopping by to say hey to one of my favorite blog people.:)
See you've been very busy as usual. I've been doing a bit of winter cleaning in my house lately and have got alot accomplished. I have been so happy watching the big piles of snow melting outside, although all that snow melting hasn't been so nice for alot of places around here with flooding and such. No flooding here yet, thank goodness.
Take care now,
~Salina

The Weaver of Grass There is a control for Vine Weevil, I can't think what its called off hand though. In this case the plant was a succulent type plant so I'm hoping it will put out new roots now its re potted in clean compost. I do prefer the cold weather in winter because as you say it does a good job controling the busg and what have you.

Jeanette You get used to the cold Jeanette, there was one day when it was painful to put my hand in the trough to fish out the ice. The thing is the sheep probably never once drank from the trough but I always think that if I was in a field and I fancied a drink I would be able to get one so thats why I do it.

Sara Thats just what I thought when I saw the road, I guess its fair to say that it doesn't get the traffic on it that the modern roads do though. It is interesting to see though. The Hyacinths were bought by the former lady to the big house, I think she thought they would open out for Christmas but they didn't so she gave them to me to bring on in the greenhouse for her. I didn't bother to force any this year as no one has bothered with them in the past.

Sara The Pennine way is 160 miles long and runs over the Pennine Hills and the Cheviot Hills which are in the centre of northern England. The way isn't to far away from where I live.

Jeanette Yes the digging and everything kept me very warm, I never have much trouble keeping warm. Glad you like the history lessons!

salina Thanks Salina. We don't get much snow here in the UK and when we do it last no time at all. The worst thing about the UK in winter is the grey gloom and dampness.
