It's been a funny start to spring this year - although the winter seemed to drag on a long time, it wasn't really that cold - and yet the snowdrops were out very late. To me, at any rate, it feels like the welcome upturn in light levels has been well in advance of it actually feeling like spring. And now, bizarrely, it's suddenly nearly April and the whole Easter parade of artificially generated shopping hype (chocolate, bunnies, chicks) is in annoyingly full throttle. Apologies to all my … [Read more...]

It's New Year's Eve as I write this, and the last few days have been perfect examples of nature at its most ... wintry.

Armed with my trusty iPhone, I've been taking photographs every day of my walks - and am now delighted to have a library of pictures which (with no deliberate plan) are providing me with an archive of seasonal change. And this is very timely as I'm acutely aware, in my own life and the lives of friends, … [Read more...]
