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."

Too late for Blackberrying
D and I popped out to our usual blackberrying spot this afternoon but sadly most had "gone over". We just about collected enough for one apple and blackberry crumble although we lost most of those when I disappeared down a badger hole and fell flat on my face and the container flew in the air. No harm done as I was able to hobble back to the car and drive home!
We saw quite a few Commas enjoying the autumn feast - photos taken by D with the Canon bridge - luckily he was carrying the camera and not me!
We spent a few days in North Yorkshire last week so will do a few blog posts over the next week or so starting with Harrogate.
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.
