After being indoors all day Saturday, I fancied a bit of fresh air, albeit freezing cold, so we headed out to Manor Park in Caterham for a bit of winter foraging.

There may not always be as much wild food to find in the winter months but, if you're lucky, you will still...

Today was a good day.

Life can get on top of you - you get caught up in the busyness of working and school stuff - it gets darker earlier meaning we are all feeling tired - we have become pretty lazy at the weekends, tending to only head out if we need shopping.

That's another festival season officially over now - ended with the wonderfully chilled Into the Trees festival in the glorious setting of Pippingford Park in East Sussex. This is a place we have enjoyed visiting for the last four years. It is always a nice way to end...

You may have already guessed, if you have been reading my blog for a while, that our family are great advocates for getting outdoors. Nothing makes me happier than when I get a message from somebody saying my photos have inspired them to go out exploring with their...

[Ad] - this is a guest post.

One of the most difficult things about the garden is getting going again after that long Winter break but there’s really only a few things that need doing so that your family can make the most of the garden when you get a nice run of warm(is...

We are no strangers to foraging and eating wild food, we have taken advantage of the ransoms (wild garlic) growing in the woods for many years now. Usually we just use them chopped up in pasta dishes or the kids quite like to just eat it raw in salads. April and May ar...
