I’ve been gone so long that I got a ‘Welcome to WordPress’ message, asking if I wanted a guided tour!

Half my problem is the new editor. Well, off course, it’s not new now.

Anyway, I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve taken photos to share here and then, oops, let the editor scare me off.


Yeah, really.

Earlier this afternoon, between rain showers, Rob and I drove to a clearing in the forest across from us, for a walk. I have a couple of photos to share. I could hear birds, but I seem to have lost the knack of seeing them in time. It’s much the same in my garden.

There’s still a couple of weeks of Spring left here and I was hoping for plenty of wildflowers.

This cute grass caught my eye. Up close, the pods look like furry grubs.

There were lots of paper-like everlasting daisies on show. Last year, I popped a tiny plant in my pocket for planting in my garden. It grew, and now has two little yellow everlasting daisy buds on it.

Last but not least, are these odd bulbous-shaped pink flowers.

I still haven’t got myself a field guide to wildflowers.

Okay, that’s it. I’m sorry if you’re still waiting for me to approve your response to my last post. I’ll improve, I promise.

Until tomorrow, then.

Oops, I did it again — another two months gone


The trouble with long walks, when I take the camera, is choosing which photos to share with you. Most of the time, I end up choosing just one aspect, and all the other lovely experiences I’ve had go unused. So, in the interests of me sticking to some sort of routine with this blog, I’ve decided to share the best walk I have each week – posting Wednesdays. (Wednesday Walk?)  This first took place last Sunday, on a lovely Autumn afternoon, the Nikon around my neck (complete with the bloody SD card which I’d forgotten – yet again! – the day before). As always, when going down the side lane, I take a picture of the cows, regardless. A-L-W-A-Y-S.


Since I’m posting lots of photos, I’ve added a ‘see more’ line here, but I can’t tell if it will work. Continue reading
