Six word Saturday


Hareshaw Linn on a Summer day


Linn or waterfall

Teaming down the weathered rock

Captive in the pool

For Viv, now in France, who knows this part of the world, and who most of you know for her poetry.  Hareshaw Linn is described as one of the best walks in Northumberland.

I hope the weekend brings you a little sunshine.  Not too much!  And that you’ll share it with Cate at Show My Face.  My walk on Monday takes me back down to Yorkshire.  See you then!




  1. Gorgeous lighting in this photo Jo, and I hope you got some sunshine this weekend 😎 We did on Saturday, delighted for the young couple whose wedding it was, since Friday and Sunday were awful wet days. My middle boy was the best man, so proud of him 🙂

      1. It was really lovely Jo, the reception was held at the bride’s family’s home with spectacular views over the Wiltshire countryside. I hope we have some more summer…

  2. I’m getting inspired with your haikus Jo, it is very good, I think it flows (haha) better with the “the” in there… Such an inspiring photo too…

  3. That’s two new words I’ve learnt this weekend, I learnt gullion from an Irish man yesterday! What a lovely spot this is and your haiku is fab. When you’re famous haiku master I’m going to take a tiny bit of credit for inspiring you a tiny little bit. Have a glorious Sunday sweetie, it’s pouring with rain here so I’m going shopping for new knickers x:-)x

    1. Happy shopping! The rain hasn’t quite got here yet so I did the veggies for Sunday lunch in the garden this morning. 🙂 I may have another word for you tomorrow, but you might know it. Thanks a lot for your so kind words. The linn was a great subject. 🙂

  4. Beautiful scene. I love the image of the waterfall being captured in the pool.

    We’re expecting a little rain this weekend, and since we haven’t had any for the past couple of months, we’re delighted.

    1. It’s a lovely walk, Tina, and would be spectacular in Autumn, I think. I might have to go back 🙂 Thanks a lot- I’m just a beginner so no high expectations.

  5. So beautiful and peaceful, Jo. The iighting in this photo is fantastic! I would be glad to share some of our sunshine if I could…the dial was turned to high all day! 🙂

    1. You got our share! We just had a little shower 🙂 The couple we were with at the Linn yesterday said that’s the least water they can remember seeing in it.

  6. Only discussing waterfalls last night with the OH. The way ours are so much smaller than those in the States, but often in such interesting out-of-the-way places. Nice haiku too.
    Hope you are having a lovely weekend 🙂

    1. Nothing special this weekend. Mick is digging and working on the redesign (a little bit 🙂 ) Yesterday was a lovely day with friends up at the Linn, which I’ve never walked before. Have you made it to a garden yet this week? Weather’s a bit iffy but ok for the Sunderland Air Show. Keeping everybody out of our hair 🙂

      1. Nowhere so far and I avoid weekends as it is busy. There is a horse parade tomorrow that I might go and have a look at, with the camera of course!

      1. Military – a tribute to horses used in WWI
        No holidays in mind, but I will be pet-sitting for my daughter at the end of August so busy organising days out 🙂

    1. Craziness, Mary! It’s just started to rain here, but nothing very wet, if you know what I mean 🙂 Have a good weekend. Hope you find some puddles to jump in soon!

    1. Hiya, darlin’! So funny- I was just thinking on my way back from zumba that I’d have to look and see what posts you have up. 🙂
      We had a really nice day up there yesterday with some very old friends (but young, if you know what I mean 🙂 )

      1. Hi Jo, I haven’t written many posts since I got home, except for one short one today, but I imagine I’ll get back into it when I’m feeling more settled. I was quite busy with my sister in Los Angeles, and now I’ve been busy getting back into my routine here in Virginia.

        Glad you had a good day with your old but young friends. 🙂 xxx

      2. Haha, I just changed the name. I don’t know why! It is good to be back home but my body doesn’t want to sleep when it’s supposed to! I’ve been awake since 3 am and it’s 5:00 am now!

  7. Looks lovely, Jo. And good to see you are trying out haiku….and for my two penny worth, leave out ‘the’ in that second line, wouldn’t you agree it flows (pun intended) better?

    1. Accept the pun but not the suggestion, Sue 🙂 🙂 I need it for my 7 syllables.
      Just back from zumba and have seen your link in my Inbox so I’ll go there next. Thank you!

      1. No you don’t….ignore the strict syllable count, because English is way different from Japanese, and it’s better to get the mood than the syllables….(well that’s what I have been told on more than one occasion)

  8. Beautiful waterfall. So inviting to jump into on a hot summer’s day…though I don’t think that’s a wise thing at all. You never know what’s at the bottom 😀

    1. Bright and breezy on the north east coast today, Elaine. 🙂 Ideal for the Sunderland Air Show, but I’m not going. Coming to you for my Snoopy fix soon 🙂

    1. Well, so long as you’ve got a kagool or whatever, Rich 🙂 It’s actually not been bad up this way lately, but there’ll be a price to pay! September/Oct might be good for Autumn colour. (horrors- don’t want to think about that yet!) Did you sort anything out for Madeira? I’ve been fancying the Azores for the longest time and now Ryanair and Easyjet are flying there.
      Anyway- somewhere near Lindisfarne/Bamburgh is the place to be. 🙂

      1. Cheers, I’ve always wanted to go to Berwick-upon-Tweed. Would you recommend staying there, and seeing Lindisfarne etc on daytrips by car, or the other way around?
        No Madeira plans for this year : ( Northumberland (in Autumn) might replace that idea!

    1. That’s a nice thought. 🙂 🙂 It was maybe more about the leaf reflections dancing in the pool for me. It wasn’t a sunny day but just as we reached the linn there was a little halo of sunshine. Really beautiful! Thanks, darlin’. Belated happy B to the youngster! 🙂
