Hedgehog – winter spotting 

I almost walked over this poor little hedgehog this morning! In November – fancy that! The fact that it went totally still and pretended to be part of the background didn’t help at all..

Not the worlds best photo by a very long way, but the best I could without stressing the animal or muddying my work clothes!

This dream-like scene seen at the National Trust Anglesey Abbey property using an iPhone. To me, everything in here symbolises spring. Daffodils, Hyacinths, Cherry Blossoms and the brilliant hues of a Japanese maple tree.

A flint(stone)

If you came looking for Fred or Wilma Flintstone, then you’ve come to the wrong place :)!

East Anglia and Norfolk in England have many flint stones that can be found littering the countryside. Flints have been used since the stone-age to make sharp-edged weapons like axes and arrow-heads, as well as in the creation of sparks to produce a fire. The flints found in our local area take on peculiar shapes, like the one below which looks like a horseshoe.
