A bit of planting, installing some protection from the wonderful birds, and a lot more clearing and hedge maintenance, revealing the folly and some sculpture. There’s been a bit of rain but not enough to refill anything, water butt or reservoirs. My photo essay on the past couple of weeks in my cloud forest garden in Keswick.
An Eight and a couple of coxless Fours rowing home on the Thames at Hammersmith Reach. Two views contrasting the solitude and focus of the boat crew on the water then the return to urban life.
Northern Rock (2-6-2) steaming down the line from Dalegarth station on The Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway. A couple of passengers, with a very impressively stocked cake-stand, were enjoying the ride in “Ruth”, one of the Pullman coaches.
Thanks to the engine driver for the steam show.
