Tilly inspects the recent repairs to her castle walls…

Castle Rising, Norfolk

Waiting for Summer

The Snowdial

Here’s a photo of snow melting in my front garden this afternoon. It occurs to me that, even without other clues such as the British number plate on my car, you could at least work out from this whether I was in the Northern or Southern Hemisphere. Can you see how?

Oh Deer

Spotted this morning just behind my in-laws’ house in Michigan.

Tilly and I were walking in the woods yesterday. We passed an Ent, who turned and watched as we went by.

Seal of (dis)approval?

We were on Scratby Beach in Norfolk today, soon after high tide.

It slopes away fairly steeply there, with the result that small waves were only breaking quite close to the shore. Apparently there’s some quite good surfing here at times, though.

To our surprise and delight, during the course of our short walk, three or four large seals swam in close enough to have a good look at what we were doing. I’m not sure they approved…
