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.

Another beautiful day today, so it was out with the flask and off for a longer walk through Shipley Park, stopping for a coffee by Mapperley Reservoir. Spring flowers are blooming everywhere. These Primroses were glorious.
There was unfortunately only one clump of these wonderful little flowers this morning.
A little further along and we got a wonderful view across the parkland, back towards Shipley Hill. The Derbyshire Wildlife Trust were busy clearing the ground to give the wild flowers more of a chance in future years.
Back home via the hill and the garden of Nottingham lodge has a lovely flowering currant in full bloom.
The currant was made to look even more spectacular as it was growing in juxtaposition with a forsythia bush. The pink of the currant flowers and the yellow of the forsythia look good together.
