Oh my goodness, have just watched the most amazing programme on BBC2 - 'South Pacific' - the first in a series to air on Sunday evenings from 8.30-9.30pm.


I really want to go there (Hawaii preferrably). Sadly I don't like fish, well, I think they're beautiful, but don't like eating them. I do like unusual plants and they're found in abundance in the many archipelagos scattered across the region.


Terrific photography, especially the underwater filming of monster waves off (sounded like) Pompeii Island, also the usual life and gory death in the animal kingdom - could have done without the carnivorous caterpillars and had to shut my eyes to the graphically recorded, predictably short lives of adorable Albatross chicks. Can't wait for next week's episode!
I always like to add an image and today's shows bluebells and cow parsley growing at a nearby park.
