Summer in our garden

Springtime in our garden

Spring has arrived and that means it's time for my annual gallery of photographs from our garden. This is the sixth edition mind you, so it has become somewhat of a tradition for me. I hope you have a cup of tea or coffee ready -- if you don't, go get one -- because there [...]

The dawn

It's not often I wake up early enough to see the dawn. I usually work late into the night, because I find that's when I can gather my thoughts and be at my most productive -- when I'm alone, the noises of the day have subsided and the only sounds I hear are the reassuring [...]
