Hydrangeas and Delphiniums

Hello everyone. The hydrangeas are doing very well in our front garden border now. Complete with mushrooms that keep growing next to them, for some reason. We have 2 x white hydrangeas and 1 x blue hydrangea. I think they’ll look really good in a couple of years when they completely fill this space. HereContinue reading “Hydrangeas and Delphiniums”

One day holiday in Windsor

Hi everyone. Look at this blue sky! Windsor is marvellous today. I’ve had the day off work. There has been cycling, swimming, coffee and catching some rays of the sun, photo taking, browsing in the shops, lunch with friends and relaxing at home. Here are some pics from my stunning home town today. I likeContinue reading “One day holiday in Windsor”

May tour of The Waffle garden

Hi guys. While I’m waiting for my garden photos to download, let’s talk about food, for a change! A couple of nights ago I made this chicken laksa. Highly recommended. I got the recipe from the Good Housekeeping Express cookbook, which is one of my favourite cookbooks. I think I used a bit more chickenContinue reading “May tour of The Waffle garden”

The poppies are back

I love these orange poppies in our garden. I think they’re weeds, but we’re keeping them. The bees seem to like them too. So how are you all? We’re fine. Life seems to be getting back to a bit of our pre Covid days. We are both doubly vaccinated (me through my job), so asContinue reading “The poppies are back”

Another walk in the rain..

Hi. How are you all? For no particular reason I’ve come over a bit tired this afternoon, so I’ll keep this brief. I still have ironing to do and roast chicken to cook. We are not just fair weather walkers, we walk in the rain too, as we did this afternoon at Windsor Home Park.Continue reading “Another walk in the rain..”

What’s for dinner?

I have to say I’ve been eating and drinking rather well recently, both outside at pubs and restaurants and at home. Maybe a bit too well 🤔I’ll share with you a few of the highlights. “What’s for lovely dinner?” my husband asks me every day around tea time. He usually is genuinely excited by theContinue reading “What’s for dinner?”

A walk around Bray Lake on Cocktail Saturday

Windsor is busy. There are cars, bicycles, people, dogs, children, everywhere! It is hard to find some space. All the restaurants and bars are now booked up weeks if not months in advance. The virus figures are going down and down (thank goodness) and everyone is out and about in the sunshine. For lunch todayContinue reading “A walk around Bray Lake on Cocktail Saturday”

My funky new chair

It’s been so long I’ve forgotten how to blog – only joking! I’ve had a brilliant week wining and dining all over Windsor. I’ve had my nails and my hair done, been to the library for the first time in over a year, been cycling, walking and thoroughly celebrated my birthday with David and withContinue reading “My funky new chair”

The tulips are out

Hi, these aren’t in my garden, but I spotted them on our walk today. Nice, aren’t they? These are stunning too. One of the highlights of yesterday’s walk with my friend Erica was this solitary daffodil in Clewer Park. Sometimes less is more. This one daffodil caught our eye, standing proud and full of cheekyContinue reading “The tulips are out”

Merry Christmas!

On this Christmas Eve 2020, my first blogging Christmas, I would like to say a heartfelt thank you and a very merry Christmas to all my blog friends and visitors from around the world. I love you all (and I haven’t even started drinking yet!) and I really appreciate the support you’ve given me thisContinue reading “Merry Christmas!”
