1815/7th May 2022 There I was, washing dishes and gazing out the kitchen window. It tends to happen at much the same time every evening. Guess who has figured out how to extort one more carrot. "Grass." she said, mournfully. "It's all there is!" Well, what is one to do? As is plain to see, … Continue reading Evening entertainment
22nd April 2022 His Nibbs stopped by this morning. "Thought you might need some footage on your blog" "...for a small fee..." Who could resist a face like that? Treats were produced and gobbled down. Though the lad is equally happy to be made a fuss of. "Not much of a flower bed, missus!"... "...you'll … Continue reading Guilt points
1740/31st March 2022 The likelihood of snow having passed, maybe, I am ready for the world to turn a nice shade of green. The above was 24th April 2019, so maybe it's too soon, Though peering closely at that slope, as I just was, there is a hint of life returning... ...all in good time, … Continue reading Today’s hue
0715/26th March 2022 Such a promising start... Even the Moon was smiling... . Oh!

Far too soon to tidy the shovel away. The photograph on left … Continue reading 20,21,22

1st July 2021 It's very hard, sometimes, to remember that my furry friends are wild and no matter what I read into their cute facial expressions, they do not share human emotion. Last night I captured a sequence of photographs that amused me but really, you can write your own story. Is it sibling affection? … Continue reading Poor little Petal
1514/30th June 2021 It wasn't what I would call a violent storm yesterday, but it was definitely moist. Very refreshing! I love a good rain storm. You know that saying about the lunatics taking over the asylum? We often used to say that in the office, back when I was a working woman, a hundred … Continue reading Who’s in charge?
1300/28th June 2021 Is it my imagination, or are things flourishing this year? We seem to have so many more birds at the feeders, so many young animals running about. And the plants (that have not been chewed by groundhogs) seem to be having growth spurts. Or maybe it's just that last year nothing seemed … Continue reading Bumper year?
1815/28th March 2021 At times, over the past few days, the world seemed really to have turned black and white. Clouds rolled over us like thick wedges of cotton wool. Yet....some colour is returning: Only naked stalks, but you can see life re-awakening. With the snow gone, I saw how the deer had kept themselves … Continue reading Blue clouds
Bird's foot trefoil A few days ago Lawn Man turned up suddenly and went whizzing around. I was quite pleased he hadn't come the week before as scheduled, because with the extended dry weather, my so-called lawn had mostly curled up and died. I had been wondering if Lawn Man would come anyway offering the … Continue reading Decimation!
