These are the beautiful red stemmed willow’s catkins they grow round our little campsite, looking so sparkly in the sun, sorry they wont be there when the campsite re opens in April [weather permitting!]
I took some of my many grandchildren to Chester’s Roman Fort on Hadrians Wall over half term to see if I could enlist them as new recruits! We had a very good time and spent about 2 hours at the site even though it was bitterly cold. It is one of the English Heritage sites along the wall and now I have bought a year’s membership,which also allows me to take up to six children at a time,[I think that would be rather an undertaking] so excellent value as there are quite a few English Heritage sites locally.
The low winter sun is wonderful in the dining room. It’s a lovely place to relax over breakfast and plan your day.
