Beautiful Sunday




Everything's looking gorgeous here, as it's such a lovely day. Shouldn't be blogging really - but I have got the door to the back garden open!

Anyway, being desperate for some new togs meant that I had to go shopping this morning and on the way, with the countryside and colours looking beautiful - bluebells, cow parsley, red (why red when they are actually PINK) campions in the hedges and the lime green, warm gold and soft rusty reds of new leaves on the trees, was kicking myself for not having a camera to hand.

What did create a sense of achievement though was getting what I needed, bought and paid for, in less than two hours.

The top photo shows the view from my bedroom window (excuse the washing on the line) and the 'top rugby field' where I spotted a fox this morning, lying quite contentedly in the long grass for a while in the sun. That's all for now, time for a cup of tea, reading just a few more posts and then a walk with the dog.

  4. Thanks for commenting Kate. Far too windy here for whirly gigs - also have to use 'storm pegs' otherwise heaven knows where the washing would end up.

    Found a missing pair of jeans a few years back, only when winter came and the leaves had dropped, wrapped around the inner branches of one of the bushes!
