Hi. I do love a cup of tea and a piece of cake, don’t you? For me the tea is usually English breakfast or occasionally Earl Grey, with semi skimmed milk and no sugar. I have caffeine whereas David has decaffeinated. I don’t know why really as he drinks Diet Coke which contains caffeine, butContinue reading “Quick blog before tea”

Windsor, Wellington College trees + my first Vintage pop up sale
Hi. Just waiting for the roast chicken to finish roasting in the oven. Yesterday David and I went for a walk in the Home Park in Windsor. David noticed the nice reflection of this house boat in the River Thames. I’m quite pleased with this photo I took. It seems well balanced and I likeContinue reading “Windsor, Wellington College trees + my first Vintage pop up sale”
Trip to Greys Court, Henley
Hi. On Sunday we visited Greys Court, near Henley, for a walk. This is a National Trust property for which I pre-booked tickets at £8. each as we are not National Trust members. Even though we visited National Trust places about 5 times last year, we would have to go at least 7-8 times toContinue reading “Trip to Greys Court, Henley”
My favourite daffodil, 36th February!
Hello folks. Let me start by explaining 36th February… well, actually, I have no explanation. David woke up on Friday morning and his bedside clock was like this…(excuse the blurry photo).. Friday 36th February?! How weird is that? My clock meanwhile was 10 days’ behind showing 26th February. Oh well, panic over, the clock hasContinue reading “My favourite daffodil, 36th February!”
So whose round is it anyway?
Hi there. I am getting very excited about coming out of lockdown. More specifically I am getting super excited about going to a pub garden for my birthday in April. I have taken the week off work, week beginning 12 April, and plan to visit a different pub or restaurant outside each day in WindsorContinue reading “So whose round is it anyway?”
Crocuses, snowdrops, daffodils
I am so in love with my crocuses. Aren’t they wonderful? The snowdrops are just perfect too, don’t you think? My daffodils are still not out yet, but there are a few around locally looking gloriously cheerful. This bunch will be good when they come out, looking promising.. I liked these daisies too. I findContinue reading “Crocuses, snowdrops, daffodils”
More pretty flowers, a couple of good trees and some walls!?!
Hello. There seem to be quite a lot of purple crocuses around at the moment. I am loving them all, with their cheery spring faces. These are my neighbours’ crocuses again, not mine. This is one of my favourite local trees, it’s one of a pair of hornbeams. I love their structural shape. And thisContinue reading “More pretty flowers, a couple of good trees and some walls!?!”
The first daffodils
I’m cheating a little bit here, as these are not my daffodils, mine are still in bud. But I was very excited to spot these on my little walk today outside one of my neighbours’ houses. I also spotted some gorgeous snowdrops. I’m still very much into snowdrops. When I got home I also hadContinue reading “The first daffodils”
The rhubarb is coming!
I’ve just had a saunter around the estate, well more of a hobble, but I am walking a little better this afternoon. At last! I still don’t think I’ll be up to going out for a walk for a while. It’s so boring being injured. Enough of my grumpiness! The garden is looking a littleContinue reading “The rhubarb is coming!”
