Amaravati Retreats

Very excited and a little nervous – first time helping to cook for a retreat at Ajahn Jayanto in May :-)

If you are curious about Buddhism, check out their wonderful retreat schedule. Drop in to meditate most Saturday afternoons. A peaceful and welcoming oasis in the midst of this busy life.


Adder in the grass – Petworth Park.

Saw this beautiful little Adder shining in the sun at Petworth Park, West Sussex today. Never seen one before in the wild like that. Feel very privileged.

It was moving very fast away from me…. definitely on a mission to find a mate….

Sorry image not great quality – had to act quickly!
