Not according to plan...!

If my mum is going to make an unplanned hospital visit,

you can bank on it being at Christmas, her birthday or ...


And so 'downline' didn't happen... and

we didn't make it to St Ives! ;-(

That said , we don't ever complain if we have to stay around at home

for some reason, especially in this weather and especially

in these beautiful surroundings!

The Woodpeckers are now regular visitors once more

and for the first time since we lived here ,we have Bullfinches

coming to the bird table, very close to the house.

These pleasures are all free!

This year, I am sharing my greenhouse with one said son who

has the gardening bug . He must get his green fingers from me!!

And my mum...she's ok and they 'released' her this morning

So she was able to enjoy Easter lunch with us all.


Mr S has very kindly said that he will take me on a jolly tomorrow...

I can't wait ... and I know where I am going!!

So watch this space!!

Hope you are all having a good Easter!

Glad your Mum is ok.

Enjoy your day out tomorrow - am sure the sun will still be shining.

You have a beautiful garden.

Yesterday at the stables we heard a woodpecker for the very first time - it sounded like when you place a wooden ruler on the edge of a desk and then make it "pinggggg"!!

How lovely to have them in your garden....

Your garden looks so lovely and I'm glad you were able to enjoy the latter part of the day with your Mum safe back from hospital. Enjoy your jolly today!

At least your mum made it for Easter lunch! Staying at home doesn't seem to quite matter as much when the weather is as glorious as it has been!
