Rain, wind and primroses

We've just taken our favourite short walk- out of White Moss House grounds, up the path by the waterfall to Brockstone Cottage- our lovely holiday cottage with amazing views., then left past White Moss Tarn, down to the duck pond, back along the old road to White Moss again.

The waterfall was in torrent following last night's heavy rain. You can see a photo of the White Moss waterfall by clicking here. There are branches down everywhere.

Then we saw ( nature notes here) -
  • Primroses by the stream on the right walking up to the cottage
  • Frogspawn on White Moss Tarn
  • The resident heron was standing in White Moss Tarn too
  • Brilliant early pink rhododenrons in the garden of the house next to the tarn
As I didn't have my camera I'll have to use photos I've already got of the primroses.

 I took this photo on 5 April last year. They aren't out as much as this yet this year- we're about 3 weeks behind at present.

If you want to come and see for yourselves, we have excellent rates right now for last minute bed and breakfast bookings at White Moss House, Grasmere .

We are also offering 3 nights for just £290 at Brockstone Cottage until 26 April.
