Yesterday morning was spent with my girls walking with our dogs round Watergrove Reservoir. Set high up in the hills Watergrove is a popular spot for walking.
Summer must be drawing to a close for all three little boys are back at school now. September already! Much as I love it I’m not ready to give into autumn yet. Happily for now summery weather is continuing.
All the way round the res chatting and laughing, the girls and I had a good time walking together. It makes me so happy that we all three enjoy being together.
When noon rolled around Caroline went off to collect Charlie, he’s just doing mornings at school for the first week and a half, Victoria went off to do her thing and I went off to do mine.
The thing I had in mind to do was grab my camera, drive over the tops and head for Cragg Vale where last Sunday morning on our way to Hebden Bridge William spotted this new tree carving. I wanted to take a closer look. It’s an interesting carving but I have no idea what it represents, some kind of folklore perhaps. I’m hoping that sooner or later an information plaque will appear.
So whilst I was out I rambled up through the little country lanes.
This little outbuilding took my eye.
Now used for the convenience of storing firewood, in the past I’m sure the residents of the nearby cottages used this outbuilding with its three separate cubicles for a completely different kind of convenience!
The cottages only have a very small outdoor space, the field is blocked off by a dry-stone wall, but I loved the way the owners, above, have made a container garden. I wanted to get a better picture than this but that would’ve meant going right up to, peering over the wall and invading someone’s privacy.
Like I said in the title I had a lovely day. Simple pleasures are life’s treasures.
