Wisley Exotic Gardens
In this post I get really excited about the new Exotic Garden section at RHS Wisley in Surrey. We had gone to follow the sculpture trail but got distracted by this incredible collection of exotic plants from the tropics!
I do at times enjoy writing the odd philosophical piece about topics that we don't fully understand or have answers to. In this case, I ponder time and who really owns our moments in time.
Old kit to get rid of
The time has come to go through all of the old clutter that I have, what can I sell, give away or even throw away!
A busy week of work, video editing, HQ launches, voyages into space, flying into the skies over Surrey and time to reflect on some of the tools of my trade.
We visited Kent back in April and chose the best week for it because the weather was incredible and on the day we visited Bewl Water it was at least 29 degrees celcius. Sent the Mavic Pro up to see what it looks like from 350 feet up in the sky!
On Location | Episode 1 | Frensham
Tonight the weather was beautiful, so I popped out with the Mavic Pro and shot some footage across Frensham and edited it down to a very short 1 minute video
It was a busy week with my contract being quite manic but thankfully there was time to fit other things in along the way including a superb 15 mile bike ride
Badbury Rings from the air
My parents live down in Dorset and one of the local attractions is the fascinating Badbury Rings which is always well worth a visit any time of the year!
Health matters more than ever
Today I received worrying news about my health that has made me think a lot about my basic priorities. Life has already dealt me a blow when I suffered from final-stage renal failure about a decade ago. We fixed that, thanks to my wonderful Dad donating one of his. I now have another scare to deal with but I will fix that too!
Many years ago we travelled to Mauritius and one of the things I fell in love with were their Flame Trees!
Remote Freelancing and Where to Work?
Since I began working as a remote freelance developer I have been questioning why I rent an office as surely there must be other alternatives to where one can park their bum and laptop for the day?
A stirring walk in this stunning Surrey Hills woodland certainly got the wordsmith in me engaged with my environment!
Problems with Facebook comment plugin

Sunny days have been few and far between around these parts and today is a refreshing change

I have been blogging with Wordpress for years but I needed a change to bring my own site in line with the work that I am doing now...
Wisley at Easter
A walk around RHS Wisley is always welcome any time of the year but Spring is the best!
North Wales from Conwy to Beaumaris
Over the weekend we travelled up to North Wales to take a recce between Conwy and Beaumaris in Anglesey. Taking in a number of places along the way.
Frensham Great Pond - Surrey

The love of boats
Every photographer has their favourite topic and for me, I love boats
