The Night Visitors, by Jenn Ashworth & Richard V. Hirst — Harry Gallon

Let me start at the end: The Night Visitors is a very good book. By the time I’d finished it, on a train, no less (the relevance of that will become apparent when you finish it, too), I found myself occupying a world of mixed feelings. 1,185 more words

Fell by Jenn Ashworth

Alluring, ephemeral and deadly, Morecambe Bay dominates the coastal areas of south Cumbria and north west Lancashire.

Coming Up on Vulpes Libris

Foxes’ tails come in all shapes and sizes, and very few more beautiful than this gorgeous seed-head of Foxtail grass. It has been a week of plant-consciousness, what with the enormous and influential Chelsea Flower Show taking place here in the UK. 164 more words
