Last Sunday, a rainbow ended on the flooded watermeadows of the River Avon , just north of Christchurch. The meadows were crowded with feeding gulls and several lapwing.
This Sunday, the rainbow seems to have ended in a pot of gold medals for Team GB in the Olympics! I have never been a sporty person but I`m completely in awe of the amazing performances of the athletes competing in the London Olympic Games. I hope they are all enjoying it as much as the millions of spectators watching them around the world.
Living in the beautiful New Forest, I am a married late-fifties woman, a recently retired teacher and the mother of grown up boys who have flown the nest. I share my days with cats, dogs, ponies and the wildlife all around us. Starting this blog is a chance to explore woods, fields, lanes and heath with my camera. A chance to share the simple pleasures of my country life.
