As the days grow longer & the sky turns bluer, quite suddenly, there is an awful lot of cleaning to be done. Lucy was so grubby, poor girl. But I have discovered that she's not so very easy to wash.
Quite a lot like washing an elephant, I should think.
The lilies have loved our very soggy spring.
So soggy, in fact, that this little slogan is entirely apt:
Funny old things lilies, they love boggy places in the valleys & they love winter- no valleys in my garden- but tucked in against our back wall seems to suit them very well.
For a while there I feared that it might not make it to my door. The young man that sold it to me fell off his bike & ended up in hospital on the day of the sale. It was quite some time before he was able to bike the parcel to the Post Shop to send it on it's way. It certainly must have once contained a family box of chocolates in it's early life! The picture is a Vernon Ward, one I have never come across before.
the front porch was covered in yellow pine pollen & dust, so it got a spruce up
We also watched "An unexpected Journey"
Which was mostly lots of fun, although I would have happily stayed on in the Elvin Kingdom myself.
We had a romantic rondezvous one evening in Lucy,
It's still pretty chilly in the evenings.
So sorry I didn't manage to reply to many of you last post.
Thank you for your lovely comments..so very much appreciated.
I do wish you a very lovely week in the midst of these gentle seasons.
