From Windows to Mac?

The photo that heads up this post is a little tongue-in-cheek, it was taken yesterday at Mottisfont in Hampshire but this signals the start of a new era for me. I have switched to Mac. I purchased a Macbook Pro 15 Retina laptop and it is amazing! Why on earth had I not considered this before?

I will of course still be using Windows but can see myself using my Mac a great deal more on personal projects, so we shall see 🙂




It’s been awhile since I have set up some macro photography and also quite some time since this beautiful Clematis has flowered. Two years have passed and it hasn’t flowered once, not once at all. In fact all 4 of our Clematis plants have been struggling, so to see one of them flowering and the others showing far better signs of growth has been highly encouraging. Have we done anything different? No not at all, gardening can be such a weird thing at times!

Blog revival!

I am currently moving things around and switching entirely to Digital Ocean for my hosting and have just updated WordPress for this site. Moving this site to DO was really easy and I’m impressed by the speed and guidance they provide you with to make the process painless. Well recommended!
