Welcome to my blog. A special welcome if you are not me. If you are a member of my family or one of my friends, judge me kindly. If you are none of that lot, then an even greater welcome, though you must be lost.

Yes, I’m back on my courgette leaf fixation, the evening sun was kinda backlighting them, the pink bits are some kind of flowers behind.

It’s a beautiful world. It feels like it’s under siege, but we haven’t killed it yet. Whether you have climbed to (let’s hope they don’t build that airport) Machu Pichu, are walking your dog through Epping Forest with its surprisingly diverse flora and fauna, or wandering down your patch of garden, the beauty is there. It’s all a matter of scale. It helps if the evening sun illuminates it just so, tho.
