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.

It seems like ages since Malcolm and I got out for a long walk in the fresh air. What with Christmas gift shopping, bad weather and battling around the supermarkets for sprouts, there doesn't seem to have been any time for a good stroll. And before you know it, here we are again at the Winter Solstice, the shortest day and (officially) the start of winter. Actually, the Solstice this year will be at 04.49 GMT tomorrow morning, so hopefully, we will be tucked up snug in bed and miss the occasion.
But to 'celebrate' in true pagan style here is a link to Jethro Tull's 1976 Christmas hit Ring Out Solstice Bells.
So, while Malcolm dances naked around the garden with a sprig of holly in his hair (not really), Happy Solstice to all.!!!!
