There was great excitement here this time last week. Snow! Ok, not a lot of snow I grant you, but enough to see Monkey get dressed at lightning speed so he could get out in the garden and explore. Whilst he got down to making the smallest snowman in the… Continue reading »
The B&W Photography Project Week 78 and this week I’ve been having fun with the icy conditions. Normally I don’t take much notice of the ice on the windscreen. It’s a nuisance, and something to be removed as quickly as possible so I can get on with the rest of my… Continue reading »

Animals of all shapes and sizes form a fundamental picture of my childhood. They fill my memories.

Last Sunday we went to Westonbirt Arboretum for the first time, we took Daddy P’s sister and her husband with us and it would appear that the rest of England decided to join us for the day. I’m quite excited that so many people appear to love trees, nature and… Continue reading »
