After what seemed like an eternity of wind and rain recently, somebody turned it off and switched the sun back on. I am so pleased about that as I was pretty much over the crap weather, I only like winter when it's like it has been the last couple of days.
Saturday, just gone, was downright ghastly and there was nothing to do but light the fire and cheers ourselves up with a full English breakfast with some rugby on TV.
Sunday was a great improvement and we were able to get out the garden, I started weeding a border as Joe planted some more fruit trees that Joe's work colleague gave us. There was a daffodil out thinking it was Spring already! We've had jonquils flowering for a couple of weeks!
Yesterday was a stunning day, today was the same
Today we are mid way through Winter....half way there, yay!
Six weeks until Spring!
It was nice enough to hang out the towels
(which are still out there! Oops!)
Jinx enjoying the sun
Two chairs for sitting in the sun with a cuppa
Jinx 'still' enjoying the sun
I finished the border I started Sunday,below are the last two barrow loads of weeds and old matting I pulled up as it was next to useless! I filled 4 other barrow loads,
it's a big border!
Then as the sun began to disappear over the neighbouring hill I wandered around with my camera
Citrus & bulbs
Lilies around the pond
My other shadow
A view of the top house through the poplars
A glimpse of patchwork quilt through our bedroom window
A Loch Ness monster
Shadows that make me look soooo tall and thin!
A view from the neighbours mailbox
Feeding out time
A lonesome duck
Where's our dinner?
A winter warmer - toad in the hole
Home reared beef sausages, handmade batter & broccoli fresh from the garden
And finally a cute puppy
..a very knackered puppy
Thank you and goodnight!
