Welcome to my blog.
Don't expect anything too high-tech or flashy, this is simply a 'diary' to share some of my photos, thoughts and observations - with a particular bias towards the natural world and the countryside around my home.

A mild, but dull morning, but the signs of Spring are still growing day-by-day. This morning, the Hawthorn bushes around Straw's Bridge were beginning to open their buds.
The freshness of these new leaves is a joy to see after the Winter and this wasn't the only sign that things are heading in the right direction. A little further on during our walk, we found a Forsythia tree spilling out of someone's garden and it too was bursting to see in the Spring.
This time, the flowers, Not the leaves were the first things to see and they made a bright addition to the dull day.
