Birthday Walk

Yesterday I enjoyed a birthday walk at Cors Caron. It was a little cooler than it has been recently so it was a great chance to go and enjoy the wildlife without completely melting! 🙂 The path you go on at first is an old railway line which is now a lovely path with wildflowers…… Continue reading Birthday Walk

Surprises in the Garden

I get a lot of surprises when taking photos of small things. I often find myself looking at a pretty flower and discover that there is a tiny creature on board. Sometimes I don’t notice the little creatures until later on when I’m looking at the photos I took! I had a look out in…… Continue reading Surprises in the Garden

Old and New, New and Old

As you’ll know if you’re a regular visitor, I am all about nature when it comes to photography. So when I saw this weeks Lens-Artists Photo Challenge was “Old & New” I immediately started thinking about how I can apply this to nature, and the types of photos I like to take. I began to…… Continue reading Old and New, New and Old

Teeny Tiny Bee, and more…

These are a few photos my sister has taken of me through…… Continue reading Things I like to do…

Cuckoo

I love it when Cuckooflower season comes around. I love their delicate pink, and the beautiful veined petals, and the contrast with the green of their stamens and stigma (the bits in the middle of the flower). If you want to see more photos, take a look at the Cuckooflower page in the wildflower section…… Continue reading Cuckoo

Red Dead-nettle

My usual Red Dead-nettle spot hasn’t let me down this year. There are, as usual, lots of pretty little flowers growing there. I like to know that year after year, I can rely on the various different spring flowers to appear in their usual spot, at the usual time. It’s quite comforting. Lots of plants…… Continue reading Red Dead-nettle
