At the end of January the snow came……
It didn’t stay very long in the valley but has remained on the fells. The views from the seat today, February 1st, are rather different from Thursday’s or indeed, January 1st.
Whilst I was by the seat, I noticed that there were some tiny snowdrops tucked under the kest which were starting to open .
It was such a beautiful morning I took Wattie for a walk around Buttermere. I was able to include a stretch of lakeshore I had not visited before: the National Trust have opened up the wood going down to the lakeshore by Comb Beck waterfalls with an invitation to make wild sculptures – could be fun!
A walk round Buttermere on a sunny winter’s day is really rather special.
