This is what winter looks like in the district of Lima.
Well at the Reserva Nacional de Lachay (or Lomas de Lachay) anyway! Once you escape the dusty desert, the winter moisture leaves the hillsides and mountains flourishing in a carpet of green. Continue reading
It’s bluebell season!
Some of my local woodlands are carpeted in these beautiful blue flowers and this is the only time of the year to see them. Continue reading
Taking a walk alongside Lake Lucerne is the perfect way to spend a couple of hours.
It’s pretty peaceful once you move away from the main centre… so let me show you the way. Continue reading
I love visiting the West Country.
I find Devon & Cornwall, in the south west of the UK, to be so green and lush, and their hilly landscape makes for a refreshing change from the flats of the Fenland around Cambridge. Continue reading
This week is Bees’ Needs Week, which was created to raise awareness of how we can help our wonderful little pollinators.
Spring has, supposedly, sprung in the Northern Hemisphere, although I feel like the Beast from the East might have some other ideas!
England in the springtime is so beautiful – for the most part – full of flowers and colour and life. One of my favourite things to do on a sunny spring day is to go and explore somewhere outdoors so I can completely experience the change in season.

Last summer I went to the Natural History Museum in London to see their Sensational Butterflies exhibit, and luckily it seems to be an annual thing so it’s open again this year.
