Brief Bio

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.

Primula Vialli with bee visitor by angela6331
Primula Vialli with bee visitor
Another photo taken 26 June 2016 in my garden - I bought several primula vialli plants and they are doing really well in my garden.  Another flower that the bees really seem to like.  I love the way the flowers open from the base of the spike and are purple, while the top of the spike is red.

Photo taken in my garden, 26 June 2016.  I have bought a lot of allium plants (dark purple) and they are starting to flower.  The bees seem to really like them, hence the visitor.

Purple Iris at Ripley Castle 03

Photo taken at Ripley Castle, near Harrogate, North Yorkshire, HG3 3AY on 23 June 2016.  Ripley Castle is a Grade I listed 14th-century country house in Ripley, North Yorkshire, England, some 5 km north of Harrogate.  The castle grounds include formal gardens, kitchen gardens, a glasshouse, deer park, and a large lake in magnificent grounds.

I have posted lots of photos of meconopsis - Himalayan poppies - recently and have been so happy to see them in the gardens I have been visiting.  I have bought several plants of different varieties and can only hope that my poppies produce flowers as beautiful as the ones featured here.
