Beautiful Spring has Sprung

Hi. Magnolia trees are blossoming everywhere. Don’t you just love them? This one above I spotted in Kingston when I took my Mum to the dentist both on Tuesday and Wednesday… a long story. There are also lots of friendly little robins around. This little chap was trying to nick my breakfast at Costa yesterday.Continue reading “Beautiful Spring has Sprung”

Snowdrops and Camellias

Hi. I took this shot above of the beautiful snowdrops in my garden today. Aren’t they lovely? Isn’t it amazing the detail you can get with an iPhone camera? There are a few clumps of snowdrops. They’ve only just come out properly, later than a lot of my neighbours’ for some reason. I was alsoContinue reading “Snowdrops and Camellias”

Swansea trip – part 2

Hi guys. Here are a few more pics from the weekend. Three Cliffs Bay is so beautiful. You can’t see the beach or the three cliff peaks at the start of the walk so you are rewarded with the lovely view when you’ve done some of the walk and turned the corner. We started atContinue reading “Swansea trip – part 2”

It’s Fit February

Hi. Are you ready for Fit February? The decluttering challenge of January is over.. 204 items of stuff left my house. Bye bye stuff, good riddance. I still have a lot of stuff, but it’s time to accept where I’m at with that and to change it up a bit. I’ve decided that February isContinue reading “It’s Fit February”

A very muddy walk around Holyport

This, honestly, was one of the easiest paths this afternoon. It got really muddy after this. We were clinging on to branches at the sides of the path with brambles clawing at our jackets whilst trying to avoid getting sucked into the vortex of thick, gloopy mud below. Phew! We made it. For those ofContinue reading “A very muddy walk around Holyport”

Quick rainy Wednesday blog

Hi, this was our project for the morning. We’ve got new grass seed on this patch of our front lawn, and David noticed that the greedy pigeons were out gobbling it all up. So we went to the garden centre (Oak Tree garden centre near Winkfield) and bought some netting and bamboo poles, to makeContinue reading “Quick rainy Wednesday blog”

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”

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”
