Yellow moth on Mahonia berries, April 21, 2015

I made a rare observation (for me) of a yellow moth the other day and one thought led to another, as it usually does…

Herb Robert (Geranium robertianum) on a city wall in April

The little wildflowers along the edge of the suburban streets here in Cardiff have flourished since I last photographed them in February (see the post here). We had plenty of rain, which helped, although we have now gone into a dry spell, so I expect this weedy greenery will wither and shrivel.

I started with a cat partly because, (more…)

Don’t look at the sun! 2015 eclipse through a tree – there will be lots of trees in this blog post!

I know it’s all so “yesterday” (or the day before yesterday), but Friday was an eclipse day here in the UK. The solar eclipse wasn’t total here in Cardiff, but we would get something like 85% coverage.

During the last good eclipse here, in August 1999, I watched from the office window, using special viewers, but this time I wanted to do it differently and I had a few plans. (more…)

London plane trees (Platanus x hispanica) in Bute Park, Cardiff

Spring is on its way, but in Bute Park, Cardiff, there are signs of death and decay as well as signs of new life and growth. (more…)
