It’s time for Kate’s Photo Challenge.
This month’s words were simply perfect for me.
That is the
which from the bottom looks like this. Yes I really did walk down to the bottom and back just to take a picture, well I wanted a walk anyway.
That’s snow on the top. Now legend has it that Giant Wade became very cross at his wife and scooped up a big clod of earth to throw at her. This is the hole he left behind. He missed and it landed at Blakey Topping.
I am busy preparing for the arrival of my son and his family so I made a lemon cake. Easter cupcakes to follow.
It tastes better than it looks.
I have bought no less than three wonderful books this month. The 1950’s scrapbook is full of images of life in the 1950s. If you enjoyed the TV programme “Back in time for tea”, you will love this. I took it to my psychology group when we discussed nostalgia last week. Already one of the other people has bought it.
The tree book was in the National Trust sale for £6. The photographs are simply gorgeous and a must if you love trees and National Trust properties.
With everything going on in our lives I have almost ground to a creative standstill. This Art book gives you 365 different activities. One on each page for a year. I am at such a standstill I am still on pages one and two, but I love the book.

A whole row of almshouses next to the school Shakespeare attended. I was really spoilt for choice on this one.

The Hole of Horcum would have done but then I spotted the Hathaway tea rooms named after Anne Hathaway, Shakespeare’s wife. But there is only one H in my life. Beloved oldest grandson, Master H
My Own Choice
Wind blasted tree at the Hole of Horcum. I had trouble narrowing this to one from that walk, so I may take you the whole walk in a future post.
Hope you enjoyed my selection and I wish you have an enjoyable Good Friday. I shall knit and natter tomorrow.
