I learnt a new word this week – biophilia.

biophilia noun(according to a theory of the biologist E O Wilson) an innate and genetically determined affinity of human beings with the natural world.

So I am pleased to report that I have acute biophilia… connection with nature… which is much more pleasant than it sounds.

I went out for a photo walk this afternoon. The sky was just grey and cold. No interesting clouds. Even the trees looked a bit drab and sorry for themselves. I had to work hard to connect with nature, to see the beauty in in all, but I managed it. You have to look so much more closely in the winter. I hope you enjoy my finds below. Each one sparked a little joy in my heart.

So many different and gorgeous greens.

Pretty in pink.

This wins the tidiest tree in Windsor award.

This is just silly!

And this.

A heart gate for you ❤️❤️❤️.

Sometimes dead or dying things are beautiful and interesting too..

A few tiny flowers if you seek them out…

Some purple around..

And some man-made vibrancy..

Roast gammon with cheese sauce, roast potatoes and vegetables… probably cauliflower…for dinner tonight. Yum yum. For pudding is Wall’s Viennetta neopolitan flavour. We’ve not had that before. Have a good week everybody. May the vaccine come speedily to you and please may it work! Xx
