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, I mentioned the Hawthorn which is now in full bloom.
Among the more spectacular flowers to adorn the countryside around these parts right now, are possibly the least likely. Horse Chestnut trees have wonderfully colourful flowers, if you can get close enough to them.
This tree is to be found near the top of Shipley Hill and some of the lower branches droop low enough to allow a close look at the 'candelabras' of flower.
While on Shipley Hill, you can hardly escape the charms of the Azaleas and Rhododendrons.
