I wanted to begin the month with a scene all too familar to me as I look out of my bedroom window. The green pastures of Trink Hill where the Trink Dairy Holstein Friesians and Herefords graze providing some of the creamiest milk you can find. On a typical winter afternoon with dark clouds moving in from the west, sunlight appears and lights up the Cornish scene all too briefly.

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

  1. Nothing more pleasurable than sun in winter. We seem to appreciate it more then than summer. Jude, love your view and Cornwall is such a beautiful region. Perhaps more than Devon 😉
