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.

Bluebells and Cherries
Our warm walk this morning, took us up Shipley Hill once more in order to check on the Bluebells.
Yet again, we were not disappointed by the spectacle which greeted us.
The scent coming from the flowers as they warmed in the sun, was heady and intoxicating.
They just keep getting better and better.
Close by, a late flowering Cherry Tree was also in full bloom, with myriad pink, double flowers.
In the sunshine - which has been in short supply over the Bank Holiday weekend - this tree seemed to be offering a last hurrah for the season's cherries.
