         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


  1. lovely to see it all blossoming forth! What a sweet little dog, must go to the same hair dresser as ours LOL

  2. Brave Mary! Must be cold still. I'm taking Tegan to the park this afternoon for a swim as she was cooped up with both of us yesterday and is dying to go for a good run. I woke up with gout on Monday but it's way better already so can walk again. Lorne is feeling a bit better today and actually was able to eat half a sandwich and some pickles! Enjoy your sunshine and I will enjoy mine! Hugs XXX

  3. I have always wanted to visit a bluebell wood--I've never heard of them except in th English countryside.
    I enjoy photos of other people's gardens--I hope these pix don't go into some bloggy neverland!
