Just hanging around - My Sunday Photo 020417

Just hanging around – My Sunday Photo 020417 You know I rather like snails, well so does Monkey.  Yesterday we went on a bug hunt in the garden and found this rather lovely fellow.  We’d had him in Monkey’s Creature Peeper so he could look at him through the magnifying… Continue reading »

Ring of bones - My Sunday Photo 260317

Ring of bones – My Sunday Photo 260317  We visited the Natural History Museum of Tring recently.  It’s a really interesting, but rather bizarre place, with a huge collection of stuffed animals.  You name it, from a polar bear, to tiny birds, to monkeys.  It has the lot, and we… Continue reading »

Two is company and three is a crowd - My Sunday Photo 190317

There are times that you take a photo and don’t appreciate the full picture until you review them on the laptop aren’t there.  This shot is one of those instances. I was trying to get a shot of the finches in the butterfly house at Blenheim Palace last weekend.  My… Continue reading »

Snails pace - My Sunday Photo 120317

We’re looking at wildlife photography at the moment on my college course.  I have a bit of a thing about snails but every time I’d looked for some in the garden they were all fast asleep.  But earlier in the week I walked home in the rain from dropping Monkey… Continue reading »

On the look out - My Sunday Photo 260217

  On the look out – My Sunday Photo 260217.  We went to look around Welford Park last Sunday, and spend some time enjoying their snowdrops.  We weren’t expecting to see this fellow.  In fact, there were two of them keeping guard over the house.  Monkey loves giraffes, he was… Continue reading »

Hidden gems - My Sunday Photo 190217

We wandered through a whole host of snowdrops on Friday, I had no idea there were so many variations. They are such lovely little flowers and some really do contain hidden gems.  Can you believe that this is a snowdrop? So beautifully intricate, and such a pity that the underside… Continue reading »

Ivy Fruit - My Sunday Photo 120217

We have a number of large ivy plants at the bottom of the garden.  They provide a home to snails and somewhere for the birds to eat in the winter. For a brief period the plants produce ivy fruit – a little different from other fruits you imagine.  The Wood Pigeons… Continue reading »

Raindrops on Windows - My Sunday Photo 050217

Up until the blue skies of yesterday, I’d almost forgotten what sunshine looked liked.  Let’s face it, the view recently has been far more one of Raindrops on Windows – My Sunday Photo 050217. Here’s hoping for better weather ahead.  I’m on the countdown to Spring and colour in the garden… Continue reading »

Frosted Berries - My Sunday Photo 290117

I’m terrible for not taking my phone with me when Monkey and I walk to school, it’s literally a 5 minute walk, and most days I forget and leave it at home.  But I’m trying to remember when we have a frost or fog on these cold January days, so… Continue reading »
