A snarled and tangled Dene
Singular of plural? Mmm…is there just one sky or are there many skies?
I suppose it depends on your perspective. Lying on your back looking up into a completely dark sky can surely make you feel that you’re lying under the enormous globe of just one sky. But…
I have three favourite words. The second of these (in the order that I was introduced to them) came from studying A-level Biology at VI Form College when I was a teenager. I’m sure it’ll be on everyone’s Favourite List. It’s abscission. Yes, that one again! I know…it’s so yesterday, isn’t it?
I’m joshing, of course.
It is with regret that the Powburn Show Committee announced yesterday (28 January 2021) that the Powburn Show scheduled to take place on 7 August 2021 has been cancelled owing to uncertainties related to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

It’s taken a long time for the snow to leave the floor of Breamish Valley. We’ve had icy conditions since 3 January this year and snow on the Cheviots pretty much from the beginning of the New Year too. But, with the slight rise in temperature over the last couple of days, the snow has now more or less melted from the valley floor. However, some snow is still clinging to the backdrop of the Cheviot Hills.
The Covid-19 vaccination programme is now being rolled out for high priority groups. On completion, other groups will be offered the vaccine.
Have you noticed that in winter you can see much further? Things that were out of sight during the summer months now come into view. This is mainly because the leaves have fallen from the (deciduous) hedgerows and trees. Gaps appear: cracks and openings that let us see through to what’s beyond.
As is commonly understood, the sun is low in the sky for us here in the northern hemisphere during the winter months. We have shorter days and a ‘weak’ sun that never gets high above our heads. This creates long shadows and, depending on the atmospheric conditions, anything from a mellow golden light towards the evenings and blue hues throughout the day. Add snow to the mix and, as the sunlight reflects off the snow, this creates other interesting visual effects.
