when Kit Hill is surrounded by fog it creates the pleasing illusion of some ancient inland sea bathed in tropical sun. And by some strange coincidence it was very similar this time last year (see 21/12/05 by clicking on Kit Hill label)
A picture of Callington from Kit Hill with the world famous Ginsters puffing away in the foreground spreading the aroma of pasties far and wide. My eyes are usually focussed on Stoke to the North but the fog has mellowed Callington and my nostrils directed me towards the factory.

as you probably know, most of us in east Cornwall rely on Caradon radio mast for daily instructions. The buzzard always flies away as soon as the camera comes out, no doubt the radio mast is talking to it too (should that be twit twoo?).

sometimes one is rewarded simply for carrying a camera. Although the rain makes the background blurred, Stoke Climsland is sitting under the middle of this beautiful, double rainbow.
I stitched together two photographs, both of which are spectacular in their own right. Please do not put coffee mugs on my photographs.

water is about all there is to photograph at present. These woodland streams run down to the Tamar at Luckett and are usually very quiet little glades but have become very lively following the torrential downpours we have experienced recently.

we have been having very severe problems ever since we tried to install Internet explorer 7 on a nice quiet functioning PC system. Crash bang goodbye followed by major rescue etc etc (I'm sure you have all been there) followed by total inability to access web pages, blog sites (ever since we moved to blogger beta) etc etc. And it started raining. It may well be that we are still blocked from logging onto our own blog, time will tell. Moral of the story : never let a giftware in the house.

well, that's one year in my blog. I have really enjoyed sharing my experiences with you (2001 visitors, including me!) and the dog's eye view of my amazing home, and some of my concerns about what you are doing, inadvertently perhaps, to the planet. I am not going to keep a daily diary now, but if there are any notable images I will ask Dad to post them from time to time. The blog will stay up for the time being.
Smile and the whole world smiles with you, weep and you weep alone.
Love Spot, Harriet, Cassie and Max and the admin staff at Orchard House.
Admin note: Spot is wonderful. An interactive DVD of thousands of images of local flora, fauna, and views including some from this blog is available for a small fee if you email me using his email address above.
