My Thursday walk with Pete featured snowdrops. Each year seems to be special for a particular plant, and this year I reckon it's snowdrops' turn.
We met a farmer emerging from a field where some sort of work had been going on with an area of hardcore parking and a track.
United Utilities bad been inspecting the eight and a half foot diameter water pipe that runs from Haweswater to Manchester and we were told of the waste of resources witnessed with masses of equipment assembled and full twenty four hour security guards when this site, having been prepared was never used for its purpose.
The farmer recalled young locals riding motor bikes inside the pipe back in the Fifties whilst it was under construction.
Today (Friday) I drove to a caravan site near Criccieth on the Leynn peninsula where I am typing this and listening to the rain. The intention is to polish off the eight or possibly nine Marilyns if weather permits, otherwise catch up on some reading.
The farmer and the United Utilities site.
