Birthday Post

Today the blog is 3 years old.

I won't bore you with a load of stats; what is important is you

Thank you for reading this.

And a big thank you to everyone else, who either follows, comments, or just passes through.

I've even met up with a few fellow bloggers while I've been doing this. That's one of the greatest things about all of this for me.

If I was better organised, maybe I would have had a selection of my favourite pictures, or some highlights from the last 3 years..............but I ain't organised in the least, so a picture from a few days ago.

Male Bullfinch

Hope everyone has a great day.
