On Good Friday we woke to cold and wet. Oh, dear! In the morning we drove to Northallerton to collect our daughter from the London train. Just time to pop into Betty's beforehand to buy something nice. Their window displays are always very attractive - only the prices stop me from buying a great deal!
Traditional simnel cake
and a variety of Easter biscuits.
What did I buy?
Their delicious Yorkshire curd tart!
Daughter and I had some blustery walks on the moor, well wrapped up against the elements, wind, rain and sleet. But there was more to come - I looked out of the window and saw this!
Good job I'd got my gardening done.
Our car in the garth.
No sign of snowdrops now.
The little waterfall could hardly be seen against the whiteness of the snow.
It's lambing time in the dale, meaning hard work for the farmers, even in good weather, but this cold and wet makes it miserable as well as dangerous for the livestock.
It was quickly melting away by the following day and we put on our waterproofs and walked out of the village up to the shooting lodge.
Prints in the snow showed us what had walked by.
Pheasants and rabbits.
It was rather wet in places!
Warm air meeting cold created a rather misty outlook. Springtime in the Yorkshire Dales to share with Skywatch Friday!
The waterfall looked impressive with all the snow melt.
