. . . to my personal blog, A Balanced Diet.
I blog about anything that takes my fancy: travel, visits to National Trust and English Heritage properties here in the UK, science, and aspects of my 40 year career in international agricultural research and academia in South and Central America, in Asia, and in the UK, particularly the conservation and use of plant genetic resources for food and agriculture.
You’ll find quite a ‘potpourri’ here.
Just search the Recent Posts, or the various Tags and Categories, on the right-hand column. There’s the Search function as well.
Click on many of the images in the various blog posts to open a larger version. And even if images are included in a gallery, a slideshow will open if you click on any of these images. Most images in this blog are mine. Where I have used other images, the source and citation can be seen if you place the cursor over the image, and a box will appear with the details.
If you find that any of the links are ‘broken’, please drop me a line in the comments box. Sometimes videos are removed on YouTube, or web sites moved. It’s hard to keep track on so many links in this blog of mine.
I hope you enjoy your visit to A Balanced Diet – keep coming back!
This week’s header image
This is the avenue of trees on the east side of the National Trust’s Belton House near Grantham, Lincolnshire, that we visited on 4 August last week. Belton House was built in the 1680s, and must be one of the Trust’s ‘jewel’ properties. Put it on your National Trust bucket list!
