Camping In Wales

In August, T and I went camping in a Tipi in Wales. It was my first real camping trip, save the odd dalliance as a teen. We stayed at a secluded eco site on an organic sheep farm deep in the Dyfiddi Forest. To reach the site we had to drive through 20 minutes of…

August Flicks

  The Summer Holidays have been wet and dreary. I was glad for the rain, as everything had become so parched, and I was glad for the cooler weather as it really had been too hot, but my photos this month have not looked very summery. We went to Avebury, a neolithic site of stone…

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…

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,…
