Hedgehog Rescue

Incredibly, in July of this year, the hedgehog was added to the International Union for the Conservation of Nature’s (IUCN) Red List for British Mammals, meaning they are vulnerable to extinction. The main reason for the decrease in numbers are the hazards they face on roads and in gardens. Netting, slug pellets and other pesticides…

It’s November, but do the plants know that?!

I’m sat here on the dining room table working, because my workroom is a MESS, but it gives me a chance to watch the birds in the garden… the starlings and magpie are enjoying the bird bath, and I’ve been out to take some photos of the flowers to (hopefully) add a bit of colour…

Back Online!

I have been trying to get back into this blog for ages; forgot which email I had used; whichever I used it wouldn’t let me in… you know the scenario, we’ve all been there!!! Anyway today I tried again and it let me straight in! I’m a big believer in omens, and obviously today is…

Spring arrives, despite Storm Ciara

Storm Ciara thundered across the UK yesterday, causing havoc in large parts of the British Isles and Ireland, but nature carries on regardless, and Spring is definitely on the way. My mum’s garden is a blaze of colour already!

Scruffy finds first signs of Spring!

Scruffy dog was so excited to find these daffodils on his walk near Newport, Wales yesterday!!! Daffodils are the official Flower of Wales and by the end of the month the fields, road verges and every spare piece of ground should be covered in them!

Work in Progress

Loving creating these masks, have more feathers and sparkly things arriving today with a bit of luck!

Laser Lightshow: Chase&Status ft. Emeli Sande

I did this video some time ago but thought it was worth sharing on here, I absolutely love this song:  ‘Love Me More’ by Chase & Staqtus, ft. Emeli Sande.  The laser itself was designed by a friend of mine and is unique in the way it bends the led light.  He also provided the…

Arum Lily

I have always loved these lillies, and now I have one in my bathroom!!!! Good Omen! 🙂

Scruffy on holiday!

Day 1: Scruffy slips past hubbie as he opens the back door briefly and makes a dash for it, up the lane. I go out to see where hubbie has got to and am greeted with the sight of him walking back down the hill, in the rain, in his dressing gown and slippers! Meanwhile…

Meet Izzy

We think Izzy had been used for breeding.  When she came to us she was still lactating, but were told she was going to be put down the next day, as she was too old to have more puppies. 😦 For almost a year she had no idea how to play, she cowered if she…

Brecon Beacons, UK

On route to my mum’s today, I had the privilege of driving across the Brecon Beacons, a range of mountains stretching from the centre to the south of Wales. After a few days of heavy rain showers, the streams and waterfalls look magnificent, zig-zagging  down the sides of the mountains.  The road has been cut…
