For a bit of variety, we took a walk down Burlees Lane this evening, then up through Hill House Wood. I wanted to see the wild garlic while it was still out. Early bluebells also made an appearance.


Down in Mytholmroyd, someone had painted NHS Thank you x in giant letters on a playing field.

An amazing sunset over Heptonstall later in the evening. We do get some absolutely wonderful sunsets around here, but tonight’s was particularly impressive. Meanwhile, Venus blazed like a spotlight overhead.

“…wonderfully droll, witty and entertaining… At their best Carter’s moorland walks and his meandering intellectual talk are part of a single, deeply coherent enterprise: a restless inquiry into the meaning of place and the nature of self.”
