Just Like Spring

Last week turned out to be a Beautiful one , just in time for my sisters visit. Wile-e was so pleased to see her, as she tried to get through the door.
Tuesday got off to a very misty start , so we headed off to Bude. But alas it didn't clear at all not an inch. So it was up to town for a lunch of Fish and Chips, and a bit of shopping. As a walk across the beach was out of the question . A good old catch up and a laugh so we Thoroughly  enjoyed our day out anyway.
We had a good few days and the weather did improve.
Before my sister returned home we drove back to Bude as the day looked rather promising. We were lucky it was Beautiful and we managed to get that walk across the beach. Tea and cake as we reached the end of our walk , in a little seaside cafe. I could see her face beaming  , and I think she went home the next day happy. I gave her a small gift of butter cream hand cream, which was handmade made in one our little town's gift shop. 
I see most of you have enjoyed some Lovely weather , so enjoy. 
It's back to the garden now with lots to do. 
Catch you later Enjoy.

Spring Like Day's

It's always good to see a bit of colour in the garden even if it is White. These little Hellebores have come up leaps and bounds since all the dead stuff has been cut down. Only a few daffodils have appeared as yet but lots to come I hope , around the perimeter. This last week has been very fine sunny weather,  so feel much better. Wile-e has picked up as he to hates rain and windy days, so he's been back on form looking forward to his walk. To give him and myself a break from the garden we walk up to the local farm , and some times pass other little dogs the white Highland Terrier being his FAVOURITE FOR SOME REASON. It also helps to trim his nails on hard ground. 

Going back a few years ago one particular morning stays in my mind. My sister had popped across for a little holiday for  a few day's. We were making our way up to the farm with Lady , my Greyhound before Wile-e. Stopped at the farm gate peered over to come across a very strange sight. The sheep were grazing away but one in particular looked in distress. The poor creature was on her back, legs sticking up in the air. Firmly stuck she couldn't move , for how long I don't know. The Farm being two or three miles up the road we both decided to go to her rescue. Not an easy task I remember, so we said no we can't budge her . We tried again and together we gave one almighty push, finally getting her on her feet. PHEW!! I tell you her poor back was completely flat just like a coffee table. Have never, thank goodness seen this ever since. The farmer said a few days later it was good you got her to her feet quickly as they become very disorientated , and after a while the Crows come down and have a peck.!! Oh Yack!!

 It's another fine day here a little cooler , but very refreshing :) 
Hope you enjoyed my story, it's funny how it just came to mind today. My sister is paying me a visit next Sunday , so I am really looking forward to that.
Have a great relaxing Sunday  :)
