Alone and happy ;-)


What a beautiful day!
We have Swallows nesting in the carport.
The parents sit on these wires and then fly in through the trellis to feed their young.
Or they fly in the back way, right by my study..it's a joy to watch them...and oh the noise!
I've spent the day here at 'Woodpeckers', alone ...just me and the garden.
I've not seen another human being since the men of the house disappeared to work.
But I have smiled!
These are the things that have made me smile...
My dark pink Lewisia ,'flirting' with other plants to make a spectacular picture.


The wooded place at the bottom of the garden,where the foxgloves and nettles intertwine...a place which is my retreat... where I have rested awhile to gather my thoughts and energy.


A beauty of a Poppy.


Little containers of loveliness.

We live next to what was once a village school (now the church hall)... our house was built in the old school playground and that brings a smile to my face.

The place where Mr S and I often sit and enjoy the nature of Woodpeckers.




A lovely day just enjoying one's own company.
I hope your day has been just as lovely!

You have a lovely garden, it looks all neat & tidy. When I sit in mine all I see are jobs that need doing.... so I stay indoors!!! I love being on my own, just pottering about.
I have my new phone...yippee!! Arrived today & it's my day off so guess what I've been doing? :)

I am looking forward to my peace and quiet moment tomorrow morning when family are at work and the one little lad I have is in pre-school for a couple of hours. Haven't made up my mind what to do with the time yet ..... I think I will just go with the flow .... glad you had a good day Sal ... lovely flowers. My peonies burst into bloom today and I must say they look good.

Lucky you being able to spend all day in the garden. I've been sat in front of a computer screen most of the day :(
