Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
Wishing everyone who looks at my blogs and very happy and healthy New Year. And thank you for stopping by.
It’s been a funny old year. Some lovely moments and some not so lovely, and on balance I’m glad to wave it bye, bye. So here’s to 2015 – onwards and upwards!

Another visit to Bedford. There is a huge swan population in the Bedford area, but I had never seen a black swan among them before.
My husband was on tour in the Netherlands with the Bootleg Sixties. The band’s families caught up with them at Easter in Leiden.

I went on a butterfly watching trip to La Brenne in France. I met some great people and saw loads of butterflies including the increasingly rare Large Blue. This one is an Ilex Hairstreak, and not found in the UK.
