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.

Newquay has an area of formal gardens with a boating lake and associated cafe. Called Trenance Gardens, they are managed by the Cornwall Council and are rather attractively planted with all manner of trees and shrubs.
A small rill runs through the gardens and feeds in to the boating lake. Beside this rill, our eye was caught by the wonderful Arum Lilies (Zantedeschia aethiopica).
Out of the gardens and across the busy road, you get to the River Gannel and some lovely walks through the salt marshes and creeks which border it. There were some pretty good views to be had looking along the river, here, looking inland..
And from the same spot, looking the other way towards the sea...
Nice and quite here, away from the town centre, on a sunny day, there can be few things nicer than this.
