Welcome to this blog. Thank you for visiting. Please look around and make yourself at home. If you’re a regular visitor, thank you for staying with me. I greatly value your company.

I’m married to Wendy and we’re retired, living in West Sussex, close to the glorious South Downs. We have four grandchildren.

As you’ll see, I love the countryside during the four seasons, plants and gardens. birds, poetry, classical music and above all my Christian faith. As two special seasonal interests I also enjoy watching cricket and rugby.

Peace and Tranquillity

The photo of our local Arun river shows some signs that summer is coming to an end. The scene reflects nature’s quiet and often slow pace through the seasons. She’s rarely in a rush. To sit for a while in her company slows us down, restores and quietens our restless 21st century spirits. Join me as I relish the beauty of late summer.
