Hi folks how are you all,good I hope.Isn't it just wonderful to see some sunshine and feel the heat on the skin.It's been beautiful here for the last week which makes me one happy girl.I have spent the last 3 days outside pottering about in the garden and getting outside jobs done,washing blowing on the line and walkies with my friend Mary who lives in the village.My little garden has come to life everything is lovely and green and ready to bloom now that the sun has come out to play.Here are a few photos that I took at 7.30 this morning whilst all was quite and peaceful.
This afternoon off I went walking through bluebell woods with Mary,the clouds came out a few times and we did have a very quick shower but not enough to wet us.The bluebells are coming up lovely and I reckon just another week and there will be a blue carpet which will be speckled with the wild orchids, the wild garlic flowers and the forget me nots.There is lots of little woodland anemones just peeping out amongst the greenery and Iv never seen so much wild sorrel before its everywhere so delicate. While we where out Mary had to have a dip in the river while it is low in fact it is quite dry at the moment just goes to show we have had quite a dry spring.Marys little dog Spotty enjoyed a swim and chasing around like he had never had a walk for months the mad dog,he is a nice little dog that Mary rescued 2yrs ago. I am going to start having a good few more walks now that it is sunshine weather to help with my weight loss which I am pleased to say is going the way I want it to again, I have had a few hic cups as ya do, but am now back into it and 1 and a half stone lighter.
Hope you enjoy my photos please let me know how you are and if your enjoying the sun like me.Take care of yourselves,Love Jill xx
Hi friends,Iv not run away I'm still here just not had much to blog about but I'm now going to do my best to get back into it.
The weather is very much a real April day here today we have had showers of rain and hail and the wind has returned with a very cold chill in it.We have had some nice days but they don't last do they? if only we could have days that are not to hot not to cold just somewhere in the middle. We set off this morning to go to an indoor car boot come market is what it is advertised as,well I wish we had not bothered.It was 70 miles away which took us just over an hour to get to and what a let down,talk about selling ya rubbish I have thrown away better stuff.I like going around the car boots and charity shops but this was just stuff that ya really should just put in the skip.The place it was in was really run down and very dirty and the stalls,well you couldn't really call them stalls there was just stuff piled up everywhere no organisation what so ever,needless to say we will not be going back there.I will see what the weather is like in the morning and maybe nip to the local car boot its always proper there,lol.
Iv not really done much sewing of late, well nothing much to show you anyway,Iv got stuck into my quilt that I'm doing, it is blocks that I did a while ago that I have put together and am now quilting by hand.It is taking me quite a while to do but I'm enjoying it and it is coming on nicely so I will show you a photo when I' v done a bit more.
My little garden is coming on lovely every thing is sprouting up nice and green and healthy looking,the little forget me nots are just starting to flower,Iv got some lovely primulas that look like golf balls and the hellebore's are still out.I want to split some later on but not quite show when to do that,does any of you gardeners out there know when I should please?? Lots of my bulbs got caught with the frost so not many have flowered this year but what has have being very pretty. I have had some problems with my photos going somewhere I cant find them as you will know if you read my last post so Iv not taken any pics to put on here yet but I will do.Thank you for leaving your comments of help to find my pics I still haven't and probably wont now and I'm a bit touchy about putting more on in case they go walk abouts as well !!
I will be back with some pics and give it a try later but now Id better get me bum off me seat and get some food sorted for the men folk its chicken for the men and bean chilli for me.
Hope you are all well bye for now,Love Jill xx
