Misty Morning at Kenauk

Entrance to Lac Hidden Every now and again I am going to post a photograph "from the archives". This was taken in 2011 from the dock of a cabin we rented every September at Kenauk for a few days fishing, birding, botanising, lazing. We haven't been for two or three years after an unbroken [...]

An English Field

When we were in England a few weeks ago we chanced upon this quintessentially English field ... on a hot and sunny spring day. The field had cows, it had Crows and Magpies and swathes of assorted small, yellow spring flowers (not all of which were dandelions). For the most part the hedgerows had [...]

Cambridge – an Hour with a Small Camera

Some days ago I found myself with a bit over an hour to go wandering in the tourist-rich streets of Cambridge (that's the real Cambridge in Cambridgeshire, England) while my companions were doing something cultural in the Fitzwilliam Museum. We lived near to Cambridge for rather more than a couple of decades before moving to [...]

Sanguinaria

Sanguinaria canadensis The unexpected short spell (it's going to rain tomorrow) of warm sunny days has brought forth the first shoots of Bloodroot (Sangunaria canadensis) which is always a delight to see shooting up at the back of the garden. We will be away for a while from tomorrow so won't see the full [...]
