December Fauna

At this time of year there isn't much to photograph on the farm - so some odd pictures today trying to identify anything colourful. Lichens - well they may not get much coverage - but they are all part of the farm ecosystem. I love to see how quickly they colonise, if that is the right word, freshly cut wood or a new fence, or brick or stone.

They are often overlooked when there are other more prominent plants around - want to find out more then follow the link ..

River Lugg in Flood

There has been a lot of rain and this has caused the rivers to rise and the Lugg has filled its flood plain once more. I stopped to take some photographs in the December sunshine.

More from December!

December glow!

The farm looks particularly beautiful . Some of the oak trees have still held on to their leaves. It is wonderful walking up to the top of the drive to wait for the bus and take in the scene. We are blessed!

Christmas lights in Bromyard, Herefordshire

When my children were small, the turning on of the Bromyard Christmas lights was a high point in the run up to Christmas. I would have to drive round and round in circles until they had had their fill!

Bromyard is a small market town with a very narrow high street and the strands of lights festoon the whole street. Shop windows are also adorned with displays. A fantastic country display for the whole community!
