Rain Coming

Becky (the Queen of Squares) is dipping her toes back into blogging this month and encouraging us to get outside and take a few steps each day during November to help survive those endless grey days. And to share a photo or two while we are at it. Square of course.

Although going to and from my house means using the same lane (in either direction) it is a case of deciding on which hill to negotiate on the day. Living where I do means that no matter where I go there will be some kind of incline involved, unless I stay quite close! This week we’re going on the Brunnion loop.

Heading back home now, the sky is darkening and there is rain to come, better get a move on. You can see from that tree where the winds come from. Navelwort or Pennywort is very much in evidence in the Cornish hedges.

Walking Squares


  1. That tiny strip of bright lime green in the distance really makes this photo sing. I hope you stayed dry.

    1. BeckyB says:

      was thinking the same!

    2. Heyjude says:

      I did, thank you.

  2. BeckyB says:

    always something special about being out just before the rain arrives

    1. Heyjude says:

      And comforting to be back indoors when it does!

  3. I also want to mention that amazingly green field in the distance … it makes you want to linger outside for a little longer (but I guess, when rain is coming, it’s better to be inside).

    1. Heyjude says:

      It’s very green around here and when the sun hits it against a black sky it really does sing.

    I’ve enjoyed these walks with you. Shall we get back to yours before the rain kicks in? And will Jo be there? Because if so, there’d better be – cake.

    1. Heyjude says:

      No cake, but I can whip up an apple crumble.

      1. margaret21 says:

        That’ll do nicely thanks!

        1. Heyjude says:

          Custard or clotted cream?

        2. margaret21 says:

          Neither thanks. Just as it comes 😉

  5. restlessjo says:

    I’m hurrying, I’m hurrying, but there’s light in yonder fields. Did somebody mention cake? None today but I had a belated Thanksgiving with our new American neighbours yesterday. I was very thankful!

    1. Heyjude says:

      See my reply to Margaret 😊 Did you have the full works? Turkey and all the trimmings?

      1. restlessjo says:

        A very tasty turkey and ham pie topped with mash. Doing full Christmas Dinner at croquet on Wednesday 🤭💗

        1. Heyjude says:

          Ooh, that sounds very nice. How many Christmas dinners are you having this year? We’re booked for 21st.

        2. restlessjo says:

          I suppose 3 if you count yesterday 🤣💗 25th, in Wales!

        3. Heyjude says:

          You renting a property in Wales for Christmas then? We had a family Christmas in Wales back in 2008. Good fun, but it was very cold!! 😱 The youngsters sorted out the food so that was nice.

        4. restlessjo says:

          Don’t be daft! 3 nights Holiday Inn, Newport. We know how live 🤣💖

    I always take an umbrella on the dog walk when the sky looks like that. I woke up to thick fog here this morning.
    Best wishes, Pete. x

    1. Heyjude says:

      Umbrella would be useless here as it’s always so windy.

  7. Cee Neuner says:

    I like the lone bare tree in your photo 😀 😀

    1. Heyjude says:

      There are very few trees in this part of Cornwall. Except for the small woodland at the bottom of the hill which I posted about last week the land is mostly bare with native hedges like blackthorn and hawthorn.

      1. Cee Neuner says:

        I’ve been watching Antique Road Show and I really like the English countryside roads 😀

  8. Seems everyone had the same thought about the flash of bright green! I liked it too.

  9. lovely area! The green stip is a lovely bright green!
