May/June

I’ve been moving house again and have very little in the way of photographs. I’ve not been out with my camera at all, and the weather’s not helped. I did get a few photos of a rapeseed field on one rare sunny weekend. Hopefully now that I’m settled in, i’ll manage to get out and…

April Flicks

Sorry to have missed a month, I got ill and then just didn’t get out an about to take photos. Plus the weather has still been so dreary and cold; I’m ready for some warmer days now. To make up for it, here’s a selection of the most beautiful blooms and blossoms I’ve seen so…

February Flicks

I’ve taken SO many photos this month! There’s been a wonderful combination of spectacular snow scenery and the first signs of Spring, meaning there’s been plenty to see and do this month. And it’s not even over, I’m off to Devon tomorrow so check back soon for a Devon special! I was lucky enough to…

September Flicks

Fantastic Flowers Nature Flicks I made a decision as we got to October last year, not to write off September this year. The moment September began last year I expected it to be Autumn. I went into full Autumn mode – drank a pumpkin spice latte, got my jumpers out, downloaded a box set. Only…

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!…
