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 Walk around Stratford and Autumn Harvest at the Gardens
Family chauffeuring last Friday meant I had a couple of hours in Stratford-upon-Avon last Friday. I had hoped to visit Shakespeare's New Place but at the last minute B had decided to accompany us so in the end we just wandered round the town centre where there is always something to see.
Shakespeare's Birthplace - If you want to read about my visit here a couple of years ago please see here
The Jester Statue
The American War Fountain
Timothy has spotted a pub!
The RSC - a sight of this theatre always brings back happy memories of visits to see plays there and at The Courtyard Theatre nearby.
Timothy and the Swan Fountain
I wish now I had bought one of these lanterns.
I've never seen this museum before - looks worth a visit
and Timothy agreed.
On Sunday afternoon we went along to Castle Bromwich Hall Gardens where they had an Autumn Harvest event.
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.
