NaBloPoMo – Space For Wildlife

image

I was at my local hospital today, seeing my stoma nurse, and was delighted to see that the hospital trust has put this fantastic insect home into the small gardens outside the entrance. It’s the decline of bees in the UK and across the world that has finally got people involved in providing homes for wildlife. The winter is a hard time for hibernating insects and mammals trying to find a safe and warm place to sleep through the coldest months. St Peter’s hospital itself isn’t much to look at, but the small garden areas are a real sanctuary for patients and visitors needing a break from the wards!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Eerie

There have been some great entries to the challenge this week! I decided that I would look at the word eerie in regard to something uncanny or mysterious, rather than spooky or scary, which I felt had already been explored during Halloween.

The sun sets early now as Winter approaches and the leaves that remain on my favourite Maple are left glowing in the lamp light of late afternoon.

They almost become disembodied entities, mysteriously floating above the pavement, their warm colours a fading memento of sunnier seasons.

Taste Of Autumn: Red

Taste Of Autumn: Red

The wonderful Maple tree in the village is going out of Autumn in a real blaze of glory this year!

Red is such a great statement colour. It has that feel good factor to it. It evinces positivity, strength, warmth, vitality and passion. These are the feelings I get from red.

How about you? What colours make you feel good and why?

Everything appears to be in abundance this Autumn. Acorns, fungi, late roses, beech nuts, berries and fabulous foliage all in our back garden!
