A record of wildlife in my garden and various trips to the Warwickshire countryside and occasionally further afield.
"To see a world in a grain of sand,
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand
And eternity in an hour."

Daffodils at Packwood House
After we'd visited St Giles churchyard to look at the primroses last Thursday, we stopped off at Packwood House. At this time of year there is always a lovely display of daffodils lining the sides of the road that runs past the house.
Blackthorn is frothing in the hedgerows and there were a few flowers in the car park at Packwood.
Lesser Celandine growing in ditches at the foot of the daffodil banks - not so many celandine this year although I more than made up for it this afternoon.
In the distance you can see the Yew Garden said to represent the Sermon on the Mount
We stopped off at The Bear, Berkswell, for a pub lunch on the way home.
Welcome to my blog. I have been interested in natural history from an early age and we have tried to create a garden attractive to wildlife. I also enjoy reading, photography, collecting fossils, visiting historic buildings and gardens and supporting Aston Villa.
