The recent quiet spell on the blog is partly the result of the dreadful weather, but also because we’ve been moving office at work to a more central location. I’ll still get up to Falmer on occasion, but I’ve been scouting new surroundings in a much more urban setting (a main road). There are green spaces, and being me I’ll make the most of them. Some better weather would certainly help, though the light drizzle today wasn’t enough to keep me from exploring.
And there are some interesting spots, including a ‘secret’ garden behind one of the main university buildings. It’s ‘secret’ in that it’s away from the main thoroughfares, at the rear of the buildings, so nobody goes there; but it has several sculptures including this tired easy chair made of stone.
There are insect boxes scattered around as well, so a focus on ecology is strong.
And squirrels… plenty of squirrels 🙂
I’ll miss being on the edge of the Downs, but I’m sure I’ll find plenty to keep me focused.
