Little Snowdrops and things.

Well it's been a lovely day here so far especially after yesterday, pretty dull and rained all day. Lucky for me I had a lunch date with my old friend, so headed for the Local Restaurant. We both had a roast dinner consisting of roast beef roast potatoes and fresh seasonal vegetables. Deli sh!We didn't stay out too long as she had to get back, family matters.
Oh it's so nice to catch up and have a natter...
Arlene I have tried to get on your post today and left a comment, but I don't think it worked.I will try again later. I thought I would just mention this as it's not the first time it's happened to me.
About 7am this morning I heard a couple of Geese flying over the house heading towards my Pond. I ventured up a little later and they were checking the place out. It's been a few years now since they nested here on the pond, so I will just have to wait and see. For those of you who haven't seen a baby gosling up close , you could be in luck fingers crossed.
Enjoy the rest of your day take care and stay happy.

Drifting Back Early 70's

I was browsing through my photo's a few days ago, and this is my sister's little Yorkshire terrier. My thoughts for some reason drifted back to the mid seventies. I was visiting my brother and sister-in-law at the time and stayed at their house when out crept from behind the settee a little Yorkshire terrier. Her fur was badly matted and very blonde, which mean't she was quite an old dog. Looking closer her toe nails they were in a terrible state, in fact they had curled round and round. I gasped in horror and couldn't believe my eye's , the poor little mite. All was revealed they told me they had found her a few days ago hiding crouched down in the back yard. They fed her and kept her warm , she had really been neglected to say the least.!! I had never seen anything quite like this before, where she come from they had no idea. We chatted and I decided to take her back home with me , on the train. I pondered on this so I put her in my large luggage bag , leaving her head sticking out. She didn't seem to mind at all bless her. Anyway I took her straight to the vets for a check up, he cut her toe nails and what a job that was. He told me that she was indeed an older dog but not sure how old.
I called her Beauty as to me she was. I remember the first day I took her up on Clapham Common , all that open space to run around on , oh the look on that little dogs face. She ran with such joy and it brought a tear of joy to my eye. I think I had her for about 18months before she became too old to carry on.
She will always remain my little Beauty, and at least she enjoyed her final years. :)

As I was saying sorry don't know what happened there, one minute here and the next posted oops must have pressed the wrong key.

For those of you know Sophie my Canary, she is in full singing mode these days. Here she is taking her bath in the beautiful Sunlit Window. Sorry it's not a very good shot .
It's been a mixed bag weather wise so far this week, sun and wind and rain. Temperatures not too bad at 9c / 47f compared to all that snow our friends have across the Pond. As I was saying the first sighting of that lovely little snowdrop was sure a pleasure to see.
Have a lovely day stay warm and safe and enjoy the rest of the week, :)


All of a sudden there they were the little white delicate snowdrops...Hiding amongst the untidy lawn. This is the first Bloom of the year . I took this picture on Sunday and since then there are many more. The daffodils are slowly popping their tiny heads up , and really looking forward to seeing them swaying in the breeze just outside my window.
