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.

Autumn is well and truly here. Our walk this morning underlined that fact and left us in no doubt whatsoever. The colours of the season were evident all over, nowhere more so than on Shipley Hill.
As always, the Maples and Sycamores provide the best colour.
As we walked around the suffragette wall which surrounds the site of the old hall on Shipley Hill, the Beech trees added their contribution to the colours.
Where this year's Great Reedmaces are setting their distinctive seed heads, they provided another point of interest viewed against the turning leaves of a very young Oak tree.
