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. Yesterday we just had to share the prompts, so although it’s day 2 … Continue reading Staying Home
My horizons have been limited to locations within easy walking distance of the house this month, so my pictures are not as varied as usual, I’m afraid. There have been some great clouds though, and a rainbow. I should maybe have called this April Skyscapes, rather than Landscapes.
The weather has turned warm and sunny, just in time for lambing at the farm in our village. We're following pretty much the same couple of local routes, so it's really lovely to be able to watch the antics of the growing lambs, and listen to their rather plaintive bleats.

A mild month of sunshine and showers. We’ve had no snow so far this winter, which is very unusual. Here’s hoping we don’t pay for it later.
I’ve not been out and about much for the past few weeks, after a bout of flu before Christmas, swiftly followed by an annoying cough in time for New Year. Plus, we’ve had day after day of chilly, grey, wet weather. Today though, conditions were perfect for an excursion. The sun finally put in an … Continue reading A Walk in Search of Cake
