A walk on the lilac side
Last Sunday, our anniversary, was a day of “have to do” things, but I had a little indulgence planned for Monday. One of my favourite places locally, I eagerly await the blooming of the heather on the North York Moors. It’s late this year, and what can become rampant, rolling plum is still a gentle lilac, but no less lovely for that.
If I lived in the village I’d have to take the whole of August off, just to sit and gaze, and meander through the heather.
Back to reality and our stomaches were calling, so we wandered into Castleton and I had a glorious chicken and leek pie at the Downe Arms. The service was wonderfully friendly and the range of food impressive in this old stone village pub.
It’s quite a haul back up the hill to the parking, but you can take it slow.
Join me next week on Six Word Saturday? Grateful thanks to Cath of Show My Face, my hostess. The header and the links take you to her page to join in, and read the other entries. It’s kind of my Saturday gossip!
