The Bluebell Walk Bluebells in Cornwall often grow in the open and not just in broadleaf woodlands or the outer edges. I see more bluebells in the lanes and on the hill than in the wood. I think of them as May flowers, but they seem to appear in April now, maybe because Aprils over…

The Lanes in April

Since the ‘step back from society’ took place in mid March I have been confined to exploring the area around my home. Places that I have explored in detail many, many times before and in 2018 I recorded the changes of nature throughout the entire year. So I feel as though I know these lanes…

I am lucky that I can still walk from my house (daily exercise) to look at this view. It lifts my heart, even though I know I cannot walk on those sandy beaches for a while. So near and yet so far. Whilst we are confined to #StayAtHome I will be posting photos from around…

The new spring gorse is flowering right now and it is lovely – such a bright and vibrant golden-yellow. Common gorse is a large, evergreen shrub, covered in needle-like leaves and distinctive, coconut-perfumed, yellow flowers during the spring and summer. You will find it on the windy, open moors all around the UK. And when…

Winter trees

The current stormy conditions are keeping me indoors, so time to look at some of the photos that I took before the end of the year but never made it onto the blog. This is a photo that has been shown before, but not quite like this. The way these trees frame the lane on…

Christmas Day

Yes, I know that was over a week ago, but it was also the last day we saw the sun around here, until this morning. And even then it soon disappeared under a veil of cloud. It was also the last time I took a photo.┬áBrian of Bushboy’s World fame is curious to know what…
