Another shot of those Lavender fields in the Cotswolds, just for fun.
You may wonder why I have a page devoted to Scotland. Well, we've visited there several times, several of my ancestors are Scottish, and I start teaching a distance education on-line course on the 'Landscape of Scotland' tomorrow. I'm also giving some Life Long Learning lectures this winter on the topic. So this will be a place I can draw information together, and maybe post some photos.
I'm excited that these pages will open up new writing and photo opportunities for me, as I expand them with more content. I may add another page or two, and I may even make the Fhotography page a seperate blog.
I'm a bit of a dunce when it comes to technical stuff, so there was a bit of trial and error in getting here. You'll see I've reformatted the blog a bit too, a few weeks ago. And I will still be stumbling through as I figure out the best way to continue adding content, and let you know it's here for reading. Advice is welcome. But I feel like I've opened a big new door for writing and photography in 2015, a good way to start the year.
I could just say 'the weather up here is frightful', but it's really not that bad. We have a good foot of snow now, and as I was walking through the storm this afternoon, the snow gradually turned to ice pellets. You could hear it tinkling against the trees as it fell. But the freezing rain is supposed to stay further south.
Our last Christmas/New Year's guests, our daughter, her husband and our precocious 4 year old grandson went home today, so all the rush is over. Our oldest son called from Haida Gwaii where he's spending the winter, and our second son who lives a lot further north, dropped in for an overnight visit, so it's been a good Christmas for family. Now it's back to the regular routine, and eventually the decorations will come down and be packed away.
