July Joy

It’s butterfly season! There’s nothing I associate more with an English Summer than wondering round a meadow as the grasshoppers buzz and the butterflies drift lazily in the heat.   UPDATE! I managed to fit in another butterfly trip last weekend to a Berks, Bucks and Ox Wildlife Trust Reserve. I saw my first Brown…

36 Hours in Devon

Tristan and I have really got the one night away in #devonheaven down to a T. We set off at 6am and were in Slapton by 11. We then stayed in Totnes and spent the following day mooching around it’s quirky independent shops. I love spending time in Totnes, just soaking up it’s unique atmosphere….

April Flicks

A belated post, apologies. The end of April was sunny and beautiful. The Blackthorn blossom burst to life like frothy clouds. These hedgrow bushes are the preferred egg laying plants for some of the hairstreaks, black, white, brown. The black can only be found in one small area, part of which is in Oxfordshire, so…

Signs of Spring

I’m hoping this will serve as a bonus post (providing I can get some more shots later in the month) to make up for the limited photos in March Flicks. Last week there was one day where the sun shone without a cloud in the sky. I went for a walk up on Barbury Castle…

February Flicks

It feels weird to sit here posting this late. My February photos are all of the first signs of Spring, and then March 1st brought a blanket of snow. Everything seems to have been put on pause. Let’s hope Spring returns soon! In the meantime – I hope you enjoy looking back at February’s flicks!…

January Flicks

28th January 2018 – the first day I officially felt the first sings of Spring. I’ve seen a few snowdrops dotted around, but today I spotted crocuses as well. My hyacinths have bloomed and with the window thrown open today it smelt like Spring was in the air. This January there’s been a sprinkling of…

December Flicks

In the nick of time! My last post of 2017 showcasing the amazing snow we had mid December. I’ve never seen snow like this. I was lucky enough to randomly wake up at about 6.30am on Sunday and peep outside. Realising how much snowfall there was, I waited for it to begin to get light,…

November Flicks

I had no idea November could be so beautiful. I’d written it off as the start of Winter and prepared myself for hibernation. The Sherlock box sets were dug back out, and slippers donned. But I found that November’s tree’s were more spectacular than anything I’d seen in October. This is definitely a month for…

October Flicks

I love October! Autumn is now in full swing the leaves are falling and the weather is getting chillier. I love wearing jumpers so i’m in my element, going out on long walks and coming back to hot cups of tea! I’ve managed to take so many pictures this month. I hope you enjoy! Let’s…
