The Covid19 movement restrictions were eased in England this month, so I have been able to venture slightly further afield on my walks and bike rides. This has coincided with a dry and largely sunny spell of weather. The sense of freedom after being restricted to one short outing per day is amazing, although I'm … Continue reading May Landscapes
I’m still taking part in the May Challenge over on Instagram, which is pretty good going for me. I haven’t posted every prompt on here, although you can see the pictures on this page under the heading Latest Images. Or you can pop over to my Insta page. Today’s theme is Springtime, so I thought … Continue reading Springtime
Throughout May I’m doing one of those daily post challenges over on Instagram. I have a habit of falling off the wagon with them, so I thought I’d give myself a bit of extra motivation by posting the pictures up here too.

In line with guidelines on slowing the spread of the Covid 19 virus, I’ll be walking from the house, and avoiding anywhere too … Continue reading March Landscapes

There are ranges inspired … Continue reading Mother’s Day Gift Ideas
Our garden borders on to fields and woodland, and we see a wide variety of birds and animals. Two especially welcome visitors in the last couple of weeks have been this beautiful red squirrel, which we see fairly regularly, and a very large brown hare. This may be the leveret that spent several weeks around … Continue reading Garden Visitors
One of my resolutions this year was to be more organised with my designs, so I’m really pleased to be able to launch my new daisy collection well ahead of the start of spring. Daisies are bright, cheerful flowers, blooming from early in the year, right through to late autumn. They are also an important … Continue reading Daisy, Daisy
