Lazy Days!


Well I’m not making a lot of progress right now, the weather is totally insane here! It’s Crowded House weather (4 seasons in one day).
Mind you, Ive had a sore back so have been taking it easy anyway! I took a couple of pics of Smudge ignoring the bird table, & showing where I want my path. I also took some really bad pics of the flowers I picked, sorry guys its definitely a puzzle!!

These birds don’t care about the cat!

Smudge just having a bath…….. birds? What birds????

A gravel path with stepping stones leading to the gate, I think.

Here we go, guess the flower time!

Hope these aren’t too obvious, or I’ll really be showing my ignorance!

Enough blethers from me, but my baby holly now has 5 leaves!

We're getting the same crazy weather here .... i'm sure i ordered night-time rain and not daytime rain !!!!!

The last flower - the white one, looks like a Campanula but not sure about the others.

Will take pics as soon as the path's done.

Great stuff MP. Must be a Celtic thing as only stopped raining today after about 7 years.....LOL!

Did you know that Bridgend in Wales is actually twinned with a Nimbus cloud?

No swanky French village or German town for us, oh no!

Not sure if I need to dig hole for pond now as past week has pretty much made one for us.

I feel paddy fields coming on.....

I was wondering about that too, I love brown rice!

Definitely a Celtic thing! Not only were both my parents born in Scotland, but my paternal granddad was from Brynwyn near (now in, I think!) Abergavenny & my dad was brought up there, but my mum's parents were Irish!
