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.

This morning was dull and the wind much colder than we've enjoyed over the last few days. But, ignoring the chill in the air, we set out to check on the progress of the daffodils on Shipley Hill. We were not disappointed.
Where only a few days ago, Snowdrops carpeted the woodland floor, Daffodils have now taken over.
The display is far greater than last year's rather skimpy show.
Golden flowers seem to fill the whole hillside.
Further round the hill, we encounter a patch of cultivated Daffodils with even bigger, brighter blooms adorning the entrance to Home Farm. It was all very Spring-like, in spite of the chilly wind.
