I love to observe life and to try to capture, and share, some of it’s beauty.

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

    10th Nov 2020 by

    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… Read more

  • Scruffy on holiday!

    2nd Oct 2019 by

    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… Read more
