Today is so cold that I dragged my big coat and boots from the loft ready to start wearing again. It felt properly like Autumn and next week it will be October. I haven’t been out for a long time with my camera so, I’m hoping that October will change all that when the colours … More Autumn Chill
While the county may be enjoying a patch of warm weather, today marks the end of summer months and the start of the autumn equinox. The autumn equinox, much like the spring equinox, is the date in the calendar when the days and nights are the same length, marking the start of the astronomical autumn season.

The sun has appeared today for the whole day! It feels so good to be cycling to work without a coat, the sun warming my body as I gently ride through some stunning countryside, flowers and trees. The forecast for the next ten days is more sunshine and really lovely temperatures. Today I planted out … More The sun has appeared!

I don’t usually visit big cities as it’s not my idea of fun, but it was nice to visit somewhere different for a change and have a ride on the River Taxi. It was extremely busy and it’s a shame people aren’t considering others on public transport. I seemed to be the only one wearing … More A bit of Urban
