Rain

Today it rained for the first time in over two weeks. I am pleased about this. Now, normally I'm not a big fan of the rain and getting wet and I was happy that it stayed dry while I was on my holiday - however, water is kind of essential for a number of things. Like watering plants and putting out fires.

This is a view over Greenfield in Saddleworth yesterday with the smoke from the big moorland fire up at Littleborough (about 10 miles away) on the horizon, it was so windy that the fire spread really quickly and the smoke could be seen for miles. The fire burned through most of the night and only the rain we had early this morning put it out properly.

We've had a couple of days of rain and now it is bright and sunny again.

The fire at Littleborough was on the news. The BF is also glad of the rain - having put heavy duty grass feed on the sad lawn.

Oh gorgeous photo's again, I do love your pictures. DH and DD are in the Lakes this week, and you went last week - I'm jealous.

So just to get my own back (hehe not really) I have tagged you for a meme, details over on my latest post. Hope that's ok.

Reminds me to post the pics from my lake district trip back along. YOur pics took me right back - I'd never been before - isn't it a glorious place?

But - no knitting?! not even in the pub in the evening? I couldn't do it :-p
