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."

A Christmas Tree Festival
I returned last Saturday to the Church of St Nicholas in the village of Curdworth to visit the Christmas Tree Festival.
There were over 30 trees each decorated with a different theme. Sorry the photos are pretty poor I had to use the camera flash as it was so dark and for some reason I really struggle to get decent photos when I use the flash.
The font which is actually Romanesque 12th Century not Saxon as I originally thought. It just goes to show you have to very careful on the source of information you use from the internet!.
Had a nice glass of mulled wine and a mince pie:)
Some of you may remember that when I visited earlier this year I was intrigued by the spider motif in one of the stained glass windows and I had discovered that one of the parishioners had done some research into the history of the church. I actually met the lady on this second visit and something should soon be appearing on the parish website so am hoping to find out a little more soon about the window.
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.
