My Handy Crush Saga

My Handy Crush Saga

As it’s almost that time of year again, (and I’ve had a surge in new followers recently – hello and welcome!) I thought I’d reshare my Valentine crush post from last year.

My tastes remain the same with an added edition this year of ‘Floki’ from Vikings (not sure how I missed him before). See the guyliner reference further along for an explanation – oh and I discovered he’s a Skarsgard (Gustaf to be precise), so naturally he has good genes!

Wednesday Lensday: Earth’s underdogs

Wednesday Lensday: Earth’s underdogs

Everyone loves a blossom tree: their puff-ball blooms are undeniably beautiful, they show off to the world, knowing they’re pretty, fresh and full of life. Even as they fall, they carpet the ground in ‘pink snow’, shedding their petals in a ‘Festival of Spring’ ticker-tape parade.

I was lucky enough to grow up in an area where the streets are lined with cherry blossoms – even the major roads are temporarily turned into a huge display of giant candy-floss every May and it’s an amazing sight.

However, with the warmer (and wetter) weather, there’s another growth spurt going on, one that is often overlooked and if noticed, probably considered a nuisance.

The humble dandelion is regarded by most as a weed, spreading itself indiscriminately whether it be in fields, flower beds or flagstones. But look closely at a dandelion ‘clock’ and you’ll discover a marvel of natural ‘engineering’, the seeds ready to disperse thanks to their own little transport system.

We might have spectacular mountain ranges and ancient woodlands, coral reefs and creatures great and small, but take time to remember Earth’s underdogs -they’re often just as stunning!
