LITTLE JOYS: 5th December 2022

Because it’s not the big goals and successes in life that bring true happiness, but the little joys that you choose to notice each day.

After a poor harvest at the normal time of year, autumn raspberries everywhere seem to have made a late comeback!

Marvelous malachite – a birthday gift for my collection. Beautiful!

Hello December!

Woodland walk. Autumn light and mist. The world goes all pointillist at this time of year.

Look up! The oak leaves are finally changing colour. Only this year have I noticed how it’s the native plants (mostly) that hold their leaves the longest, and the introductions (mostly) that change colour first.

A sweet treat to celebrate a day off.

Playing with colours and rocks.
