We rarely get a sunny and dry day in January.
Benno and I took a camera out to see if there had been any changes since we last
Sheep are still grazing in the Lower Pastures.
The river is back in his bed.
The meadows are dry enough for rubber boots;
we no longer sink in above the ankles.
The castle ruin is still standing;
What do you think, should it be rebuilt,
perhaps as an apartment block?
The views from up here are spectacular.
The silver birch on the bailey shows its true colours.
The Sun enters the House Of Aquarius
The man born under Aquarius shall be lonely and ireful; he shall have silver at thirty-two years, he shall win wherever he goeth, or he shall be sore sick. He shall have fear on the water and afterwards have good fortune, and shall go into diverse strange countries. He shall live to be seventy-five years after nature.
The woman shall be delicious and have many noises for her children; she shall be in great peril at twenty-four years, and thereafter in felicity. She shall have damage by beasts with four feet: and shall live seventy-seven years after nature.
