It’s been a grim few days for very many people in the UK with a series of low pressure systems sweeping in from the Atlantic, deluging the South West, Wales and the North of England particularly. Few low-lying areas of the country have escaped unscathed. There are a multitude of flood alerts and warnings and many houses have been flooded. We are so glad we chose to live in a village on high ground. With Christmas only a month away many people will be facing a miserable few weeks and we feel desperately sorry for them.
At times like these we need an image to cheer ourselves up. And so today I’ve chosen to post an image of Spring from the Lake District: traditionally one of the wettest areas of the country that itself suffered from devastating floods three autumns ago.
This is a well known, and well loved view across Crummock Water near Buttermere that we visited two years ago on a fine day. This is a beautiful unspoilt area of the Lake District, a little off the beaten track, but well worth the journey.
