What Now?

It was a pair of grey ponies at the crossroads that prompted me to ask my willing Chauffeuse to park beside the stream at Ibsley ford, where a story began to unfold. The greys, casting their shadows in the morning sunshine, were mirrored by a couple of cyclists engaging in a lengthy conversation before partingContinue reading “What Now?”

A Cervine Spectre

Jackie was up in the dark this morning, in time to photograph our first smattering of snow before the rain washed it away.

We continued on toContinue reading “A Cervine Spectre”

No Passenger Seat Was Vacated

A Statuesque Beauty

Jackie dropped me at Silver Street again this morning. This time I walked along this road, which, like many local ones has no pavement. I the turned right into Woodcock Lane and crossed Everton Road into Hordle Lane and, eventually, home.
