three little ducks reflected in water

Day 120 – Three little ducks

"Three little ducks went swimming one day..." I found this little cuties on a local fishing pond near my home. There were actually 5 ducklings and their mother but the other 2 seemed much more timid and stayed right beside her all the time whilst these three keep buzzing off all over the place. The mother duck kept a close eye and if they got to far would hurry after them but for the most part she seemed content to float around nearby and let them explore.

Men sitting by pond fishing taking in serenity

Day 118 – Fishing for serenity

"There is certainly something in angling that tends to produce a serenity of the mind." ~ Washington Irving I guess this must be the case but fishing is something that I just do not get. I understand the solitude, the quiet, the peace etc but just sitting there would not work for me. I need something to do or else I get bored and irritable and I am pretty sure sitting and staring at the water hoping that something might happen at some point would drive me bonkers. Each to their own though, if fishing is your thing, I hope…

Day 111 – While Walking

“All truly great thoughts are conceived while walking.” ~ Friedrich Nietzsche There is a lot of truth to this quote in my experience. I love walking, it is my preferred exercise. There is something about getting out into the countryside that just makes me feel calm and alive. It also combines perfectly with my love of photography too. I do like going for walks with people but really I love it best when I am on my own because that is when I can just relax and let my body carry and my brain go where it wants. Many of…

Day 107 – Clouds that come and go

“The sky and the sun are always there. It's the clouds that come and go.” ~ Rachel Joyce I love a perfectly clear blue sky. It is not something we get a lot of in the UK but when we do they are utterly beautiful but a sky with lots of blue and those fat puffy clouds sailing through it are also fabulous. There is something about those clouds that I find beautiful. Yes they block my beloved sun now and then but they also dance across the sky decorating it with their ever changing shapes.

Day 98 – Spring March

A Light exists in Spring Not present on the Year At any other period -- When March is scarcely here ~ Emily Dickinson I know March has been and gone but I took this image right at the beginning of that month when winter still lingered, the trees stood bare and the signs of spring were only evident in the light that spilled from the skies. How much difference a month can make when seasons come and go.

Day 93 – Path like this

"As people are walking all the time, in the same spot, a path appears." ~ John Locke That combination of people and nature create something so simple and yet so perfectly beautiful. For me a path like this is an invitation to strike out, one foot in front of the other, to see what lays up head, round a bend or over a hill. It is an irresistible temptation to discover just what it out of sight.

Day 91 – Flower power

“People from a planet without flowers would think we must be mad with joy the whole time to have such things about us.” ~ Iris Murdoch

Day 88 – Faded

“And all the winds go sighing, For sweet things dying” ~ Christina Rossetti“ Even in its last moments a flower can still be a beautiful thing. This is a single Hyacinth bloom, curled and faded, its pretty white gone, its scent just a memory. It is a shadow of its former self and yet it lingers in a new state somewhere between death and life.

Day 87 – Rain again

"The rain began again. It fell heavily, easily, with no meaning or intention but the fulfilment of its own nature, which was to fall and fall." ~ Helen Garner Today my outdoors looks like this. One moment the rain is falling, heavy and noisy swirled around by the wind and the next their is bright spring sunshine making the droplets sparkle like little gems on everything they cling to. It is most definitely spring today, not a calm spring day, not a dull grey one, but one of those ones where things change rapidly, clouds rush across the skies as…

Day 84 – Spring arose

“And the Spring arose on the garden fair, Like the Spirit of Love felt everywhere; And each flower and herb on Earth's dark breast Rose from the dreams of its wintry rest.” ~ Percy Bysshe Shelley

Day 81 – Favourite

"But we never lose the old favorites. They're always with us. We just sort of accumulate them.” ~ Lloyd Alexander I have many favourite things but when it comes to flowers Daffodils are my favourite spring flower and probably my favourite flower overall. There is just something so wonderfully cheery about them. Even on a grey spring day they sit up bold and bright in my garden like little sunshine's glowing at the world around them. Last year I planted lots of them in the grass in my front garden. They look lovely now but I have realised that to…
