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."

Baddesley Clinton at Christmas
E and I went to Baddesley Clinton a week or so ago to see the house decorated for Christmas. The theme of the decorations again this year is dried flowers grown in the gardens and assembled by volunteers.
Sorry the photos are a bit "iffy" it was a dull and gloomy day and many of the blinds are shut in the house to protect the furnishings so to put it mildly photography without flash is a bit of a challenge!
I can never resist taking a photo of the choughs.
The house really did look beautiful and it is well worth a visit if you live locally.
Time for lunch - the slightly healthier option of jacket potato and salad was my daughters - I had the Christmas cake!
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.
