We visited Waddesdon Manor last Sunday. It’s a firm family favourite, a beautiful house to admire and grounds to explore. As Monkey wandered around collecting sticks, I looked up. A single, solitary leaf, the last man standing. I stood and stared and wondered. How long until that last leaf… Continue reading »
We regularly go on snail hunts, Monkey and I are both fascinated by them. We’ve been reviewing a Snail World set and Monkey has been totally mesmerised. He checks on his new friends morning, noon and night.
Regular readers know how much Monkey and I love a good snail hunt. These little creatures fascinate us both. We look for all the different coloured shells and admire them as they slither along, I try to forgive them for eating my plants along the way. We are big fans… Continue reading »

The B&W Photography Project Week 68 with PODCast and today I’m going back to one of our favourite places to explore. This shot was taken at Blenheim Palace earlier in the year. When Monkey was in a pram or buggy I used to see this view a lot, as it’s past the formal… Continue reading »
The B&W Photography Project Week 67 with PODCast and this week I’m sharing a photo of one of the dahlias in the gardens at Baddesley Clinton. I like the way the light has caught it on the edges but the centre of the flower is almost in darkness. The petals are so delicate… Continue reading »
I spent last Sunday with Redpeffer and The Reading Residence at Baddesley Clinton, chilling out, catching up and just enjoying some ‘me’ time. Whilst we were chilling out, there were some who were working very hard on a sunny October afternoon.
Walking around Stowe last Sunday we were surrounded by beauty at every turn.
