It's that time of year when the garden is starting to positively zing with colour as demonstrated by this vibrant but cute and tiny Ragged Robin. Swipe left to see it in it's full setting... This is a Marsh loving genus of the meadow favourite and is happy sitting in my garden oak water barrel. ๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ’ง๐ŸŒธ . . #achilterngarden #raggedrobin #ukwildflowers #latespring #earlysummer #waterfeature #marshgarden #vibrantcolours #zinging #itsonlysmall #wildflowers #attractthebees #greenfingers #ukcountrygarden #visitbritain #visitengland #chilternhills #chilternlife #ayearinthechilterns #naturallife #naturephotography #spring #uk_nature_shots #letitgrow

It's that London! As seen from the Oxo Tower restaurant last evening. It was the end of a long old day of meetings and schmeetings. The sight of my dear old London bathed in the dusky blues that come about only at certain times of the year, was a sight for tired eyes! . . . #stpauls #cathedral #Londonmeetings #londontown #mytown #stpaulscathedral #landscapephotography #landscape_lovers #instascape #landscapehunter #cityscape #instalondon #nofilters #huaweimate20pro #dusk #riverthames #lightreflections #lightonwater #bluehues #cityoflondon #workinggirl #underwriters #insurance #riskmanagement #attheendoftheday #oxotower #dinnerwithaview

Beautiful spring lambs enjoying the lushness of the Chiltern Hills as seen on our fab hike last Saturday. Spring has become my favourite season with the promise of new life everywhere we look โค๏ธ๐Ÿ’•โค๏ธ . . . #chilternwalks #chilternhills #chilterns #chilternlife #ayearinthechilterns #naturallife #naturephotography #spring #uk_nature_shots #uk_wildlife_images #lambsofinstagram #lambs #lambsandewes #hikeitbaby #ntchallenge #walkinguk #ukhikingofficial #springhassprung #beautifulbritain #explore_britain #greenhills #wildlife #thewondersofspring #huaweimate20pro #viewranger #chilternsociety #chilternwalks

Heading off to my second home across the pond tomorrow and wishing I could be home with my family. Posting this throwback from last month when we had the wind in our hair and the sun in our eyes.

Looking across to the mighty Scafell range from the lowly heights of Hard Knott fell. They certainly brought their thunder to the image! Here's to a great weekend for anyone lucky enough to be hiking in the Lakes this weekend ๐Ÿ’•โค๏ธ๐Ÿ’• . . . #lakedistrictphotography #lakelanduk #lakelandhikingcollective #lakedistrictnationalpark #visitbritain #visitengland #beautifulbritain #explore_britain #walkinguk #wainwrights #lakelandfells #scafellrange #hardknott #walkinguk #ukhikingofficial #hikeitbaby #thegreatoutdoors #thisismyadventure #getoutside #landscapephotography #landscapehunter #lakedistrict #igerscumbria #igerslakedistrict #osmaps #ordnancesurvey #huaweimate20pro #viewranger #mountainview

So last week these two little beauties showed up in our garden! ๐Ÿ˜ We think we have a male and female so have named them, perhaps somewhat obviously, Harry and Harriet ๐Ÿ˜. We've bought some special food for them, that is branded as being unappealing to cats, given that we have four rescued furbabies, that seemed the sensible thing to do ๐Ÿ˜‰ Since Saturday we've had to refill their dinner plate each night so here's hoping to babies soon? Apologies also for the picture quality but I didn't want to scare them off, although, not bad for an unlit phone shot! . . #hedgehogs #mrstiggywinkle #mrtiggywinkle #gardenvisitors #hedgehogsofinstagram #naturephotography #natureswonder #naturallife #feedthewildlife #scarcecreatures #protectourwildlife #springwatch #chilternlife #chilternsociety #chilternhills #chilterns #worldwildlife #huaweimate20pro #nighttimephotography #inthegarden #hedgehogfamily #hedgehoglover #springhassprung #hedgehoglife #hedgehoglover

We had a great, local bike today, a nifty nine miles, starting and finishing at the West Wycombe Hell Fire Caves. Whilst I captured some great images along the way, I am always drawn to the Dashwood Mausoleum near the very end of the hike. The first image is West Wycombe Park, previously owned by the Dashwood family, swipe left for a couple of images of the mausoleum, made almost entirely out of our local flintstone. . . #westwycombepark #Dashwood #dashwoodmausoleum #thegoldenball #flintstone #walkinguk #hikinguk #beautifulbritain #hikeitbaby #walkingboots #huaweimate20pro #NTchallenge #nationaltrust #historicbritain #chilternlife #chilternsaonb #statelyhome #hikehikebaby #chilternsociety #chilternhills #chilterns #hellfirecaves #visitbritain #walkingworld #viewranger #visitengland #osmaps #westwycombe #Westwycombecircular

Had to do so much cropping to squeeze this beaut of a scene into instas confined frame, but you get the drift right? Today's weather reminded me of this image, we've had sunshine fading to black skies that threw down hail, that in turn hammered the new spring flowers and buds. I love a good moody weather day though, especially when on the beach or up in our beloved Lakeland. Nothing quite beats a Cornish shoreline though ๐Ÿ–๏ธโ›ฑ๏ธโค๏ธ๐ŸŒŠ . . . #cornwall #cornishlife #cornishcoast #beautifuldestinations #beautifulbritain #coastalliving #beach #surf #surfandsand #cornishcoastline #picturesque #photosofbritain #beachlife #lightplay #ukpotd_apr19 #explore_cornwall #explore_britain #landscape_lovers #landscapephotography #landscapehunter #downderrybeach #picturesofcornwall #seascape #seascapephotography #weekendhideaway #rocks #wheremyheartis #lovecornwall #crazyweather

Here's another from our Saturday hike, a circular that took in; Pulpit Hill, Beacon Hill, Coombe Hill and finally Whiteleaf Hill. I mentioned that I had a few hazy shots from the hills.... This one is taken from the top of the Pulpit Hill nature reserve, where plenty of butterflies were already hard at work. Insta's crop necessity means the image is rather shrunken, but hopefully you can see the effect of the layer upon layer of hills that the Chilterns are famous for if you look to the back left of the image ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿฆ‹๐Ÿ›๐Ÿฆ‹ . . . #chilternsociety #chilternhills #chilterns #chilternlife #ayearinthechilterns #naturallife #naturephotography #chalklands #huaweimate20pro #visitengland #beautifulbritain #visitchilterns #viewranger #osmaps #hikeitbaby #hikinguk #walkinguk #explore_britain #weekendwalks #onelifeliveit #buckinghamshire #landscapephotography #getoutside #nationaltrust #englishlife #goexplore #walkingboots #ukhikingofficial #pulpithill

We picked the best day of the weekend to hike, this sky though.... We took a brisk 9 mile route in our locale, taking in Pulpit Hill, Beacon Hill, Coombe Hill and finally Whiteleaf Hill which is an ancient burial ground. As you can see we live on a natural chalk land and the ground was as dry as a bone!...I do have a few hazy shots from the hills but this one floats my gondola rather ๐Ÿ˜Š . . . #chilternsociety #chilternhills #chilterns #chilternlife #ayearinthechilterns #naturallife #naturephotography #chalklands #visitbritain #visitengland #beautifulbritain #visitchilterns #viewranger #osmaps #hikeitbaby #hikinguk #walkinguk #explore_britain #weekendwalks #onelifeliveit #buckinghamshire #thisismyadventure #getoutside #nationaltrust #englishlife #goexplore #walkingboots #ukhikingofficial
