Keeping it Simple

For a lot of people at the moment, life is strange, complex and worrying. We don’t know what will happen, we don’t know how long we’ll be in lock-down, we don’t know whether the world will ever be the same again. Some people have time on their hands, looking for things to occupy themselves. Some,Continue reading “Keeping it Simple”

Wildlife Welcome

I like to try and live in harmony with nature. Even if I was able to work hard getting my garden all perfect and neat, I don’t think I would want to.

Ladybirds (or Ladybugs if you prefer)

Today I bring you Ladybirds … or Ladybugs if that is your preference … or indeed Coccinella septempunctata if you are interested in that kind of thing … This one is slightly better focused I think and you can see more of the Ladybird, but it’s just on a stony background crawling on the wall:Continue reading “Ladybirds (or Ladybugs if you prefer)”
