A very muddy walk around Holyport

This, honestly, was one of the easiest paths this afternoon. It got really muddy after this. We were clinging on to branches at the sides of the path with brambles clawing at our jackets whilst trying to avoid getting sucked into the vortex of thick, gloopy mud below. Phew! We made it. For those ofContinue reading “A very muddy walk around Holyport”

My favourite daffodil, 36th February!

Hello folks. Let me start by explaining 36th February… well, actually, I have no explanation. David woke up on Friday morning and his bedside clock was like this…(excuse the blurry photo).. Friday 36th February?! How weird is that? My clock meanwhile was 10 days’ behind showing 26th February. Oh well, panic over, the clock hasContinue reading “My favourite daffodil, 36th February!”

So whose round is it anyway?

Hi there. I am getting very excited about coming out of lockdown. More specifically I am getting super excited about going to a pub garden for my birthday in April. I have taken the week off work, week beginning 12 April, and plan to visit a different pub or restaurant outside each day in WindsorContinue reading “So whose round is it anyway?”

More pretty flowers, a couple of good trees and some walls!?!

Hello. There seem to be quite a lot of purple crocuses around at the moment. I am loving them all, with their cheery spring faces. These are my neighbours’ crocuses again, not mine. This is one of my favourite local trees, it’s one of a pair of hornbeams. I love their structural shape. And thisContinue reading “More pretty flowers, a couple of good trees and some walls!?!”

A grey weekend in Windsor

There have been no pretty skies or clouds this weekend. I don’t think we have even glimpsed the sun. As David and I sat across the table from each other at lunchtime I remarked that I could hardly see him across the table through the gloomy light. An exaggeration, of course, but the light hasContinue reading “A grey weekend in Windsor”

Trees without leaves

Hello. It occurs to me today that, in my humble opinion, trees without leaves are every bit as beautiful as those with autumn colour. What do you think? (And did you spot the bird at the top of this one? Lots of birds sitting in trees today). These were all taken this afternoon on myContinue reading “Trees without leaves”

Clewer Park, unidentified lunch and a little Covid update

Hello everyone. I do hope you’re well. Let’s start with the Covid update. The day after I heard that one of my friends had died from Coronavirus, I learned that another friend is currently in hospital on oxygen with it. I have decided that I really hate this virus, this is getting personal now. “****Continue reading “Clewer Park, unidentified lunch and a little Covid update”

Roses of Dedworth, Wildmoor Heath and Christmas cake planning

Hello Waffle friends. It is nearly the end of October, can you believe it?? It is also Tuesday whereas for me it feels like Wednesday. It’s going to be a long week. For those lovely people who noticed I have been struggling a bit recently, thank you my friends xxx. This week is still challengingContinue reading “Roses of Dedworth, Wildmoor Heath and Christmas cake planning”

Windsor Great Park (again!)

I admit this has not been the best of weekends. It was not terrible but I felt a bit depressed. I think it was probably a reaction to the week I had and the pressured return to work after my holiday. Hopefully this week will be better. So for today, I’ll show you a fewContinue reading “Windsor Great Park (again!)”

Glorious Cliveden (part 2)

Good evening. As the beautiful light streams through these golden gates at Cliveden, I want to finish showing you the photos from our great afternoon out there on Thursday. I’ve got to make this a really good post tonight, as myself and The Waffle will be undergoing a little pause this week, so there willContinue reading “Glorious Cliveden (part 2)”
