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.

Once again, the sun shone on us this morning as we walked through the woodland atop Shipley Hill. It's cherry blossom time again and the recent good weather has certainly brought the blossom out in great numbers.
Seen against the blue sky, the pink of the blossom was rather beautiful.
The Shipley Hill cherry trees are always good value at this time year.
Close by and the Maple Trees are also beginning to bloom but in their case, the flowers are, at first glance, not so colourful.
As usual, a closer look reveals the true beauty of these shiny, green flowers as they appear in large groups at the ends of the branches.
There will be more blossoms to come no doubt over the next few days.
