A zig-zagging wooden walkway leads the eye across rich lily ponds teeming with life.

It's Behind You !

The Beautiful Forest
Sea Pink, or Thrift, is the 'county flower' of the Isles of Scilly and thrives in salty, windswept environments. It's perfect for gravel and rock gardens and insects love it !

The Day Before 'Carnaval'
A very beautiful sight in French market towns during festival. Each building, tree, street and post is decorated with 'flowers' made from plastic bags of all colours. A treat to behold.
Fields have been reaped and deer are fat and ready for eating. So called because hunters can ride easily over the fields' stubble, where foxes and other animals are easily spotted.
Balcony parasols in the ancient town of Najac. Perfect for those lazy summer evenings.

Daniel Craig (aka Mr Bond), eat your heart out ! A brave early morning 'dipper' emerges from the icy surf of Whitesands Bay one grey and chilly January day. Rather him than me !
Emergency Shower 999
