The Past

The past is a foreign country: they do things differently there.

A little colour ..

We still have a little colour left in the garden with this beech hedge - the weather is turning colder and no doubt the leaves will soon turn brown.

Haircut time in the garden..

The time came last week for a couple of trees in the garden to have a trim - we certainly have more light now….

They will soon grow and no doubt need another trim in about 5 years time.

Bird Identification - Help !!!

Now what is this ? I've tried to identify it from the internet but without success. It wonders around in the company of a male Mallard and looks virtually black but closer inspection reveals glossy green feathers - about the same size and shape as a Mallard. I guess it could be some kind of mutant or a cross..

Any ideas ??


Penguins - move your cursor and take them for a walk !!

Say it as it is ......

Shoot for the moon, even if you miss, you'll land amongst the stars.

Look around !!!

What is this life, full of care,

We have no time to stand and stare?
