The weather has turned wet and cooler – I said Summer wouldn’t last – and in sympathy with the change of weather, this photo was taken earlier in the year on my iPhone when the weather was a lot colder.
Richard (son and heir), plus daughter’s dog, and me went for a walk up Holmbury Hill at the beginning of March. Holmbury Hill is about three miles due west of Leith Hill – already visited twice – once in cloud (click here) and once on a perfect winter’s day (click here). It’s possible to walk from one hill to the next, something I hope to do before too long
So what sort of weather did we have on Holmbury Hill? It was overcast, and rain was a possibility – we thought. Less than five minutes after this shot was taken, just as we crested the summit, we were hit by a blizzard of snow. All over in five minutes or so and then life resumed as usual. The dog seemed unperturbed.
