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.

With our weather remaining dull, cold and very dreary, I thought we would try to brighten things a little with some floral colour from Shipley Park. The Rhododendrons are of course the most colourful of the lot.
Almost every colour from the purest white, through soft pinks and yellows, to the darkest reds and magenta, these wonderfully showy bushes are always good value, even when the weather is being unkind to them.
From a distance, they make a lovely show, but looking closely, their individual blooms do not disappoint either.
We shouldn't neglect the more lowly plants. Looking down the ground, the Forget-me-nots are beginning to cover the ground with their powder-blue flowers.
There, that's brightened things a bit - hasn't it?
