Monthly Photo Challenge: November

November has been another quiet month. I am not good in cold or wet weather and it has been a tad windy too. I know I should get out more, but during the first week I was still getting over the cold I came down with in October – who says colds should only last…

Monthly Photo Challenge: October

October has been a strange month. Quiet. Having returned home after three weeks travelling east and north to Scotland it was a relief to be back home and unpack. Living out of a suitcase for more than a few days becomes very wearying. I also missed my garden, which had turned feral whilst I was…

Monthly Photo Challenge: April
