It is not often I post a picture of domestic wildlife or garden flowers. But this month brought a major change in our lives. After nearly 40 years in Norfolk we have moved back to the street where I was born. This is our back garden, one of the factors that persuaded us, after scouring the Peak District from Glossop to Leek and from Hayfield to Matlock, that the place to be was the very spot where it all began. We are adjusting to a new life in an old place and discovering that the county where I was born is as strange and wonderful as the interior of any rainforest.
