Changing Seasons 2016: April

I know this is very late but I was determined to get it out anyway! As some of you may know, I spent April joining in with CampNanoWriMo. Nearly all of my free time was spent working on my novel which is why this wasn't posted then. My favourite writing spot, however, (when it wasn't... Continue Reading →

Changing Seasons 2016: March

This post is for Cardinal Guzman's monthly Changing Seasons photography challenge. This year I'm photographing my favourite place in the village - the little wooded path alongside the wildflower meadow that runs down to the stream. The main feature during March has been the daffodils, which were much later to bloom beneath the shelter of the trees... Continue Reading →

After the Rain

One type of weather you can nearly always rely on in England is rain. This year has been particularly wet! It might be annoying, stopping me from getting outside to take photographs, but it's what makes the gardens so green and the growth so lush, so I suppose I shouldn't complain. As I arrived home a...

New Growth – July

It's been a while since I've managed to put together a gallery of pictures showing the plants and flowers growing in my little corner of the world - summer weekends for a children's entertainer are a little busy! I have, however, been taking pictures quite regularly so I thought it was about time to share them... Continue Reading →

New Growth – June

Unfortunately we currently have absolutely no internet in the village so I'm afraid I'm going to be absent from my blog for most of this week. I'm only able to post this one by visiting a local restaurant that has free wi-fi. Luckily I'd already prepared a gallery of pictures ready to post! We've been told... Continue Reading →

Roses

The roses in the garden are now fully in bloom so I thought I'd share a few pictures of them. I adore roses. Their blooming is always a sign that summer has arrived, even if the weather doesn't necessarily agree. I'd just like to apologise to anyone whose blog I haven't managed to visit recently or whose comment... Continue Reading →

New Growth

I thought I'd share another gallery of the flowers blooming around the garden and village with you today. The daffodils, tulips and fruit tree blossom of previous weeks are now all gone and we move on to lots of purple and pink flowers. We have alliums, aqualegia, clematis, irises and - newly opened over the last... Continue Reading →

More New Growth

I thought I'd share some pictures I've taken around the garden and village over the past week. A lot has been happening, growth-wise. At the beginning of the week the fruit trees in the garden were still in bud. As the days have passed they've all come fully into bloom. As you'll see, I've taken lots of... Continue Reading →

New Growth

Today I foolishly went out for a walk without my camera. I only wanted to stretch my legs and get a breath of fresh air before getting back to my writing, but I soon regretted leaving it behind. I found all the new growth and Spring flowers quite captivating. Luckily, for once, I had remembered to take my... Continue Reading →
