Swallow (more photos »)

We were just sitting out in the garden, enjoying the lovely sunny evening, and drinking tea (Yorkshire Tea, obviously).

"The swallows are late this year," I said. "I've seen them elsewhere, but they haven't made it into the hills yet."

Ten seconds later: "Swallow!"

Not quite enough to make a summer, but we're getting there.

“…wonderfully droll, witty and entertaining… At their best Carter’s moorland walks and his meandering intellectual talk are part of a single, deeply coherent enterprise: a restless inquiry into the meaning of place and the nature of self.”
