. . on a wet, dark day when the sky is closed until torn apart by great, sizzling sheets of lightning? What else but share the light of a few glorious, multi-coloured candles. So here are just a few flickering lamps to brighten the day for any of you, anywhere, gazing out at a grey, guttering world. They were all taken just a couple of days ago on a short walk around to our beautiful Kocadere Valley. I know you’ve seen them all before but, let’s face it, waking up to a new day has got to be worth it!
Beautiful Anemone Coronaria
Tilly Tortoise taking the Spring sunshine
Bee Orchids (Ophrys) in all their diverse glory
those beautiful anemones again
a delicate little Fritillaria
Finally, a question: what has a hazelnut in every bite?
