2011 - My second year of blogging in Brittany
I felt I would like to share some of the photographs I have taken so far this year and some from other years. I live in a beautiful part of Brittany and just love being here. It's a lovely place to photograph and enjoy being in through all the seasons and hopefully this blog will show you where I live my life.

Friday 2 April 2010 - Going for walks around the area
My ankle has been feeling much better this week and on Wednesday, which had been forecast as rainy, but turned out to be a blue skyed sunny and warm day I went on my first walk for ages with B. We drove to the beginning of an old railway track and I managed to do forty minutes of walking with a few stops for photographs. This was somewhere I hadn't been before and I was amazed at the scenery. This was the first pussy willow that I have seen this year - golden and fluffy.
The first house on this walk is a mill - a truly lovely old stone building, and as you walk past the mill there is a spectacular waterfall.
The celandines were everywhere - bright yellow patches of petalled sunshine.
It was so good to be out in the sunshine after all the rain and snow we have had this year. I was beginning to think I'd never feel the sun on my back again - the winter has been so long.
The last rough surface before the calm pool above - the noise of the water was terrific. Then the pool with hardly a ripple on it's surface.
On Thursday, in the morning I had to drive to collect some blue and yellow irises for my pond. On the way I passed this lake, which was created by a large dam and you can see the previous road bridge in the lake.
Coming back I had to stop and take a photograph of the forsythia in the hedges.
In the afternoon B and I walked at the other end of my village - again a path I'd never taken before and another mill, with a smaller waterfall.
