At heart, I would say I love Nature and just about everything it produces, so amazing! I marvel at flowers and the beautiful shapes,colours that are to be found, every little tiny thing is so wonderful to look at. I've been having the best time watching Springwatch this last 3 weeks, I wish it could be on all the time. I've learned so much, about birds, butterflies, bees, insects and so much more, just incredible!
On walks that we manage to do, I have to stop at every stream or river to look for fish etc. It's something from childhood, fishing for sticklebacks, or with my Dad on his fishing ventures. It's fascinating. On a recent walk to Ashford in the Water, we stopped on the bridge and I went to the right to look for fish, nothing....as is usual.....so a little look to the left? YES, big whopping fish, so close to the surface and the edge, delightful. I think they are rainbow trout, and are so close in to the edge because people feed the ducks there.

Below are some more photies of the lovely things I saw on our day out, firstly in Ashford in the Water, then on to Taddington. We walked up above the village on a beautiful day with skylarks singing their hearts out.

I'm busy sketching for a new book, which may or may not go ahead? Also doing some cute little characters, so I'll be back soon.
