|A beautiful rose from a bouquet for my wedding anniversary|
My day job is doing research on marine environmental protection and maritime policy - I am passionate about making sure the seas are safe and clean for everyone to use.
My husband reckons I must have been an elf in a previous life - aren't elves attracted to the sea? I would really like to live near the sea at some point, rather than in Leeds (UK) but at least it is a green city and I live near Roundhay Park. Ideally I would spend my winters on Mallorca (somewhere near Puerto Pollensa would be great) and then spend my summers in North Wales. Oh well, maybe at some point in the future.
My hobbies are photography - obviously - and gardening - also obviously considering how many of my photos are of flowers and plants. I am also keen on walking in the hills around North Wales, holidaying ever year in that area (mostly in Porthmadog) with my family. I also read a lot and do various types of needlecraft - embroidery, tapestry, patchwork, knitting and crochet.
I hope you enjoy my photos - I really enjoy taking them.
If you are here to thank me for a fav, it is my pleasure
If you are here to thank me for a , you definitely deserve it
I try and thank everyone for watching, llamas and favs but if I miss you - many apologies
Thanks to all those who keep coming back and faving more photos - I'm happy you keep finding things that you like
