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.

Yesterday's walk to Osborne's Pond was as productive as usual. The ducks and geese were fighting for the few scraps of bread still laying around after a bread-bag-induced feeding frenzy. The 'pond' itself was looking delightful.
I couldn't resist taking more photos of the spectacular Rhododendrons on Shipley Hill. This one was not only gorgeous to look at, but unusually, had a sweet scent too.
We had intended to have a look at the Azaleas and Rhododendrons on the sight of the old hall, but just as we got there, a large and extremely noisy bunch of school kids arrived with a couple of 'teachers' (actually, a couple of air-heads, barely any older and certainly no more intelligent than the kids they were supposed to be in charge of), so we avoided that like the plague!
