My 30 day challenge has come to an end! Over the past month I’ve been sharing pictures of the nature I’ve seen out on my travels, from snails and butterflies to poppies and wild strawberries. It’s been a great reminder of how much nature we can find right on our doorstep, so I thought I’d […]

I absolutely love butterflies, the way they flit about is graceful and peaceful and always smile when I see one. This morning a white butterfly flew into our garden and landed on my favourite lavender plant. It didn’t have any markings on it all, so I think it’s a Bleached out Green-veined White. The photos I […]

This evening I was driving through the Vale of Glamorgan with my partner when we spotted this rather magnificent chap! Pheasants are such regal birds. There are plenty of them in that part of Wales, but smile every time I see one.

I love the great outdoors, there’s nothing better than being outside (preferably with bare feet), but unfortunately I don’t have any talent for gardening. However, a few years ago my Aunt gave me to big pots with cuttings from her herb garden and I’m proud to say they’re still going strong!

Word of my #30WildDays challenge is obviously spreading, because today I haven’t had to look for wildlife to blog about, the wildlife has come to me! I’d just got back from studio this afternoon and thought I’d sit down on the sofa for a bit as I’d started work a 5.30 this morning, when suddenly […]
