I wore comfy faded jeans, a black tee and a hoodie...in pale pink.
Sunscreen and sunglasses
and it was so sunny in the Humble Bungalow Garden.
There is nothing like a warm sunny day to raise spirits
neighbours were outside pottering about in their gardens
there was music coming through open windows...
some time was spent chatting over the fence
and catching up
let there be many more days like this please!
we have had a few wine and cheeses
over the years
and I think it's high time for another...
weeping pussy willow
cheery yellow makes me smile
delicate anenomes in mauve
such a sweet bloom
tulips in yellow and orange
not quite fully opened
or I would have taken a picture of the interior with those dark fuzzy stamens
I spent the better part of the day weeding
trimming the edges until my dull edgers refused to snip another blade of grass
so half of the edges are shaggy
I'll need to buy some new ones or find a shop that sharpens tools.
I like to have the edges neat and tidy.
The cottage garden look is generally rather messy and chaotic
so order with the edges are my one attempt to tame nature!
I dug up some overgrown twiggy bushes
turned the soil in the back garden.
The raised beds are ready for seeds
which will be planted in a couple of weeks when the danger of frost has passed.
I am weary a wee bit sore but feel a sense of accomplishment.
I had the BEST surprise later this afternoon...
The lovely Miss Isla came over to visit!
Her parents were here too!
My son has just returned from a business trip in Chicago.
I made a cup of tea
put a blanket down on the floor in the living room
and brought up all the toys
and the Tupperware
and a spoon.
I sat on the floor and played too.
she also enjoys playing with my silver bangles.
She is so adorable
her eyes are bright blue
her hair is red
and she has a smile that could melt any heart!
I am in Grammy Heaven right now basking in the after glow!
