The Changing Seasons 6

[su_box title=”May” style=”soft” box_color=”#5c7100″ radius=”8″]This is the sixth in a year-long series of monthly posts participating in The Changing Seasons photo challenge set by Cardinal Guzman.

[su_column size=”1/4″] May was a busy month for me and combined with some inclement weather and the remains of my virus, we saw little camera action. I had just two outings in addition to my weekly Monday Outlook photographs.

Read more in my photo blog but to summarise May:

  • The grass finally began to grow but not sufficiently
  • Wild flowers began to appear
  • The weather was occasionally good but mainly poor, remaining wet and cold and windy
  • Lambs appeared in greater numbers in the fields
  • The cattle were turned out towards the end of the month – changing the landscape completely

Hot, hot, hot

I really am a poor blogger these days, aren’t I? Sorry. The notion that I would keep a Nature Diary here soon fell by the wayside. A pity, that. Perhaps I will try again next year, The thing is, we packed ourselves up and wandered off in the van again and when we came back we were, for various reasons, at a low ebb. Energy has been lacking and especially the mental variety. I amContinue readingHot, hot, hot

Having chosen to live in France, I try hard to live French. I really do not want to be that Brit – the one that moans how they can’t get such-and such in France or that some-other from the UK is better… Certainly, in my humble Brit opinion, there is so much here that is better than back in Blighty. Bread and butter for one two things, for instance. However, I do have a beef:Continue readingB-B-B-B-B-Bovril

It’s coming…

It’s coming…

We are getting ever closer to our new van. It is supposedly 13 days away. I say “supposedly” because we have been here before and I shall not quickly forget the horrors of last year when Mr Snail had to stay near Paris for several nights after travelling up on the train at 6am and… Continue reading It’s coming…

Well, that was unexpected…

Well, that was unexpected…

I was confiding that Heidi’s days with us are numbered, we had picked out our new van and that Mr Snail was taking her to Cognac to get a PX price… Things did not go to plan.

    Wonderful shots. I prefer looking at the photos in your other blog and commenting in this one 🙂
    The theme here really cropped that mailbox photo! In the other blog it’s a nice photo wioth great DoF, while here the theme has cropped it so much that it’s not even the same photo at all. We’ve had a cold spring/ cold early summer too, but it seems to have been picking up now the last few days. Hopefully we’ll be able to enjoy a few warm and sunny days this summer! 😀
