The Lost Words – in photos

The Lost Words – A Spell Book to conjure back disappearing words.

I’m so glad that none of these words have disappeared from my life and I’m fortunate enough to have plenty of photos of each of these Lost Words to choose from.

(Photos taken over the past couple of years)

  3. Loved get my hands on my own copy of this – you might be interested in this Alex, which I’m going to see at Symphony Hall in Birmingham. Perhaps the performance is touring and closer to you?

    Great series of shots celebrating a variety of wild delights – love the adder and starling murmuration in particular.

  4. May i say it looks ‘spellbinding’! You have a wonderful collection of your own discoveries; glad to read that it’s inspiring others to get out and about to locate nature’s treasures. That shot of the starling murmuration is terrific.
