Hi, I started this blog really just to give me something regular to work on and to share a few of my main interests and adventures.
My main interests are Botany, Microscopy and the making of permanently-mounted microscope slides from some of the plants both ‘wild’ (can you believe that some folk actually refer to them as weeds!?) and cultivated that I encounter just about everywhere I go.
I’ll include other things as well of course, and see just where this blog takes me (and hopefully you too if you like it…). I’m ‘in my fifties now’ and am very lucky to live in the beautiful Cumbrian countryside in the Lake-District of England, in of course the U.K.
Being retired I have quite a good measure of time to pursue my interests and hope to share a few of them as I add pages and blog-posts to this web-site.
There’s so much to see in the plant-world at the moment that I thought this would be a good time to start this fresh new blog.
