After fifteen years in the Dordogne in the South of France I’m moving on, and moving back: back to single life, and back to the UK. I’ve always loved Scotland and I’ve had a number of holidays there, either scuba diving or motorcycling.

A few days ago when the sun came out Mr Lizard was doing a bit of basking on the wall, so I took a few photos. It wasn’t until I was reviewing them that I noticed a spiky object in the background, and thought it was a plant, but decided it didn’t look right for … Continue reading What’s That Spiky Plant?
I needed a change and thought I’d go for a theme with a light background. Resonar looks pretty smart I think, so I’m giving it a go. A few days ago during a sunny spell we had a lovely ‘Common Blue‘ butterfly stop by and I managed to grab the camera and take a few … Continue reading New Theme and Blue Butterfly
