I just realised that it's over two months since my last blog post. Two months!! How is the year slipping by so quickly?! And it's not that I've not had anything to blog about, but somehow I have neglected to make time to write & post about all the things that I have been doing.

Something that I absolutely loved doing back in late January/ early February was visiting RHS Wisley to attend their annual Butterflies in the Glasshouse exhibit. I made sure to go by myself (Me, My camera and I - style) as well as with the family. It was brilliant, but trying to get great photos as well as keep eyes on two mini-people would have been beyond me! I have some more butterfly images in my nature - flora and fauna gallery.
I've not had a chance to get down to RHS Wisley in the last couple of weeks, and I'm really looking forward to our scheduled school-holiday trip down there next week. Seeing the changes that the seasons bring is one of the joys of living in the UK for me. Growing up in Sydney, one thing that you don't get to experience is the absolute and clear delineation between the seasons. It's more of a blur, with perhaps six to eight weeks of wind, rain and colder air temperatures that pass for 'winter'. Hardly enough to warrant a proper winter coat at all!
Spring in the UK to me is daffodils, crocus and bluebells popping up through the lawn, being unsure if you actually need the heating on in the house (generally, yes) and the count-down to daylight savings so that at least it feels like the kids are sleeping in!
