New Blog

 22 April 2011

Time to start a blog, I thought.
So here it is.

My name is Lydia Gray and I write stories. If things go well then I will be blogging about writing every now and again. Other than that this will just be about stuff that takes my fancy or catches my eye.

I missed a treat today. My bloke went down to the garage to buy tobacco and he saw peacocks in a garden. One blue, one brown and one white. They were standing at the door of the house as though they expected to be let in. They don't live there, they belong to the local doctor. They live at his house.

I missed them. I wish I'd seen them. It's not something you see every day.

Other news. It's April and the bluebells are starting to come out down along the hedgerows. In a few days, if the weather holds, I'll go down to the woods for a look.
Until then, here is the cherry blossom on our tree. It's almost gone now, but it was nice while it lasted.


  1. Yay! First comment! *does the first comment dance*

    Welcome to the world of blogging, Lydia. That's a lovely photo, too. Cherry blossoms are beautiful, aren't they?

  2. Yay! I have a comment :D Thank you!

    Yes, I love cherry blossom. Shame it's always gone so quick.
