I have to confess I've been a teeny weeny bit down in the dumps at not being able to get started with the garden, but I'm telling myself that it will be worth the wait. Anyway, because I have no garden photos, I'm posting ones that I took while out walking today. Part of my walk took place during a 'white-out' - a man stopped to offer me a lift. I told him it was okay, that I was out for a walk to take some photographs and thanked him. "Yer mad," he replied and sped off before I could come up with some witty retort, such as, "Madness is relative" or even accuse him of being mad for driving in such dangerous conditions. Ah well, I enjoyed my walk nevertheless and if it hadn't been for me needing to go to the loo, I'd have stayed out longer.
Here's two lovely cows I met while walking along the old railway line. They were sheltering in the corner of the field and were totally indifferent to the interest I showed in them. One of them glanced round briefly at me, the other didn't move at all. :)

You didn't know Narnia was in County Durham, did you! It isn't really - this leads into the nature reserve at Oakenshaw.
