A Shopping Trip....and a little bit more.

 This is Lucy my Lurcher 

Shopping,  that's as interesting as it get's. 

Well mum where have you been.
Food shopping to be exact just an ordinary Monday , at my local Supermarket.  After trailing round for an hour , mission accomplished. Packed it away in the boot of my car .
Thought I would pop back in store for a take away Costa Coffee , really needed Cuppa.

There she was beautiful Bubbles as I found out later what her name was.  Yes it was a  Greyhound , my weakness  as some of you may know. A weary looking guy in a wheel chair wanted quite frankly a dog sitter , while he was doing his food shop. I do it for you I promptly volunteered , I couldn't resist those big brown eye's looking up at me.  
I stood I sat and patted her , took for a short toilet run. Drank my lovely coffee feeling a little better after that much needed drink. Waiting and I can tell you the people you meet in that one hour is quite amazing.  Yes an Hour you heard right...but I didn't mind really. Two friends of mine I hadn't seen for almost three years , a good looking guy took a shine to her and we chatted for 20 mins at least.

Finally he showed up and offered me a coffee , but I politely refused thanking him. As I had more errands to run. Bye Bubbles it was fun and a pleasure .   You may say that was my good deed for the day, But in fact it made my day, but hey that's just me I suppose.

Here are some Pictures from my Garden  through August  to Oct  this year .
It has been a great time for the Roses , Red Hot Pokers and the Orchard  also, giving a few varieties of Apples. The Ducks on my Lake  are always a pleasure to observe through the Summer months.
 That is a Christmas Cacti   which is doing just fine. It brings a bit of color in October , it is now fully bloomed.  

Have a Good week and enjoy each day as it comes.

Spring Blooms

This is a Wonderful time of year everything springs to life. They lay dormant over the Winter, and then colour blooms start to appear. The top yellow looks like a Buttercup, although I'm not sure. 
 Doesn't time fly by I have been keeping up reading your blogs, at least. 

A Long Tailed-Tit for the first time here I will admit, started nesting in The small prickly bush outside the living room window. 

The Pansies were almost dead , well I thought over winter. So I pulled off all the dead bits hanging down and in a matter of weeks. Plenty of water and sunshine they are blooming lovely.

I will post some more later of my lovely pond area, but still have a lot of tidying up to do down there 
before the Daffodils die off .

Hope you are all well and the weather has been good to you. Here in Cornwall we
have had a glorious week. 

It's staying dry but will cool down to 13c to 15c this weekend.
Catch you later take care.

Chilly here , well it is Winter..

I love the Frost far better than all that rain we've had here of late. ..Blue skies and very cold. 
Above is the  new Patio , you can see part of it. The strange  little tree in the top center , is a Christmas tree which is 5 years old and has never been brought back  indoors. Doing well by all accounts. I decided to place lights on it , as it has pride of place. 
There will be a lot of work to do out there come March or so.
Am I looking forward to it, well not really with my sore hip. Will just have to look and maybe think about it ha! 

Meeting up with my dear Lady friend she is 95 years old this year. She is lucky really as she still gets out and about. But she does need an arm to hang on to. Having two daughter's is a blessing , so I am sure she glad of that. 

That's it for now a flying visit and just to say Hello. Enjoy your Week.
