I love nature but somewhere in life’s overwhelming busyness I’ve lost touch with it.

But I’ve been given a wonderful opportunity to bring it back into my life. I’ve just moved into a house in Disley, a village on the Cheshire/Derbyshire border, which overlooks Kinder Scout moorland at the front and onto fields at the back.

This website is a record of my journey back to nature, to rediscover my fascination and wonder of the natural world. I plan to encourage wildlife into both the front and back gardens, to experiment with growing some food, to take walks locally and in the Peak District, find inspiration for my neglected artwork and soothe my soul.

Delve right in and share my journey with me.
