When you're smiling....when you're smiling....


…the whole world smiles with you!

Well, I was smiling yesterday because…..I didn’t have to do any heavy work in the garden and when Ali went over to take her boy, his lady and TerrorJACdyl shopping, I had time to sit out in the slowly but surely, transforming garden and actually take it all in.

The weather was glorious and as I split my time between just chilling on the decking at our table and wandering up & down the garden, I was joined by some friends and got me some pics for the album.

So, here is a reflection on my day….

Firstly, I was joined by a feathered friend for breakfast….

‘Go on then Daz, just a quick pose before I crack on….’

And some Rowan berries for Gee19 coz I know she’s obsessed with my beautiful Rowan tree!

A little view across the decking, through my Calluna Vulgaris – Silver Knight – HEATHER

This little un looks cute…

Does she look like she’s fluttering her eyelashes at me, or what?!!

Life is all about sharing….

‘If I can just get the bottom off this thing the nuts are all mine…!’

Just love the colours and the pose…

Sorry Sanbaz….he was there so I had to do it!!!

If you look carefully, the spider is rolling a small fly in his silk!!

And one of my girls was still watching my every move….

Cradle me in your petals….

Who ate all the seeds…?

Mmmm….I wonder…..

…guess it’s you then?!!

This little fella’s shadow gives him a much better profile, trust me!

One of my favourite pics and taken just as I went in for tea.

Prepared and ready for action sir….!

So, hope you enjoyed my relaxing day as much as I did. Gotta fly now…

‘Did someone call?’
