Welcome to this blog. Thank you for visiting. Please look around and make yourself at home.

I’m married to Wendy and we’re retired, living in West Sussex, UK, close to the glorious South Downs. We have four grandchildren.

As you will see, I love the English countryside during the four seasons, wildlife, nature poetry, gardens and above all my Christian faith.

I try to write thoughtful, well-researched posts, reading other people’s wisdom before adding my own personal view. There’s so much to write about our beautiful countryside that I’m never short of topics.

Peace and Tranquillity

Nature’s pace through the seasons is slow. Join me as I sit for a while in her company as she slows us down, restores and quietens our restless 21st century spirits.
