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.

The tide of colourful, Spring blossom continues to sweep over us. We've had Snowdrops, Blackthorn, Daffodils, Celandines and Cherry blossom of course, and now we also have Apple blossom adding its colour.
This morning, as we walked around the lakes of Straw's Bridge, we stopped to admire this particularly flower-filled specimen.
As with the cherry trees, the dry weather has been kind to the blossom, keeping it looking pristine for much longer.
The cherries are still looking good too and over the last few days, we've spent quite a lot of our time gazing up into the branches of these beauties.
A backdrop of blue sky is always good too.
Some of the blossom this year has been jaw-dropping. Probably the best I've ever seen.
