Good things happening here lately? How about games in the garden between two pretty girls?
Hula Hoops and..
laughing until you nearly cry.
For Mamma there is the fun of watching (and joining in) and relaxing in the dappled shade of our very beautiful garden with flowers opening all around.
Frothy seas of limanthus flowers with their poached egg faces encouraging hover flies I hope
That blue, blue, blue of forget-me-nots
Scarlet poppies with those gorgeous dresses of softest silk
and pretty, scrumptious chives.
Our house nestles behind this lush scenery and quietly watches all that goes on.
Biscuit, one of our silver-cheeked appleyard pair of ducks, is once again sitting on her nest which now has plenty of soft feathers added for extra warmth.
She popped off for a quick feed and drink so I was able to grab these pictures before she noticed. I think she is actually doing it properly this time - ducks are notorious for leaving a nest once they are bored - and has sat constantly for a while now. Fingers crossed there may be little ones to show you in a few weeks.
But for now I must leave the garden and head back to the sewing room where there is a list of orders waiting for some hand embroidery to finish them off.
The computer is finally mended and so I will post more regularly again - shorter ones you will be glad to hear!
Have fun x
