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.

Roses, as we all know, are Red. Similarly, Violets are Blue, right? Wrong!
As our walk to Straw's Bridge yesterday revealed, these Sweet Violets (Viola odorata) were anything but blue, or even violet.
This fairly large clump of Sweet Violets was growing along the footpath, beneath a hedge of Elder, Privet and Hawthorn bushes The flowers were making sure they opened before the Cow Parsley surrounding it, grows too tall and swamps everything in sight. Another sign of Spring on a cold, damp and foggy day.
