COMMENTS FROM THE POTTING SHED
Sara Tippy is a girl actually Sara. I have made out my order for veg seed, I like to get stuff ordered in plenty of time.

Jeanette Happy New Year to you too. I took a picture of the water trough for you this morning just in case you needed a quick dip to cool you off! The plants are for a trough in front of the house but not the two by the front door, I already have them planted. Ha ha - we had the air con running all day here too Jeanette!!

My apologies to Tippy~girl!

What a cool bridge!

From your weather readings, it looks like it was a good day to light a bonfire. Brrr...

I thought I saw a faint trace of sunlight on that water trough, Bob.
It is bitterly cold and icy here in Yorkshire but the sun is shining and that is better than dark damp weather. You had a very sweet lunch with all those honey sandwiches - good job Paddington bear wasn't around or you might have lost them!

Sara Ha ha - don't worry, Tippy is very forgiving. The motorway that the bridge spans was created in the late 1960s after the route of the Pennine Way was approved so the bridge had to be build especially to accommodate the trail.

The Weaver of Grass You're right about the sun, the picture was taken yesterday which was a nice sunny day unlike today which has been grey, damp and cold. Yes I did have a sweet lunch didnt I, I needed the energy to keep me warm!
