Lakeland. Every day something new for the watchful eye or camera lens. Half an acre of delicate snowdrops to wonder at this morning – and several acres covered with mountain rock brought down by Storm Desmond, in late 2015, this afternoon. The UK Environment Agency – with a bit of help from Jen the Pink Digger – has begun the mammoth task of clearing away the hundreds of tons of rock brought down upon the village of Glenridding and Ullswater by Storm Desmond in December 2015. More photos of Jen and co here. Meanwhile the weather forecast is for an icy, snowy night in Cumbria and the road gritters are out and about. Another log for the stove methinks.
