Finally life is getting back to some normality… and this weekend has been one of the best weekends in ages.  You see I am back out and about with my camera.  Still having to take things easy has meant my camera has sat in the bag and not seen the light of day for weeks.

This weekend has been filled with mixed emotions for me.  What with clearing my mum’s home and being able to get for the first time in ages with my camera. It has meant a lot of highs and lows over the last 48 hours. Continue reading →

On a cold foggy morning like it is today… I long for spring.  We are only days into winter and it is cold, dank, miserable, grey.. and I am fed up with it already.  The clocks turned back and it seems to have sent the nice weather into never-never land.. never to be seen again.

I can handle the cold frosty mornings.. as long as the sun is shining.. but fog and this dismal weather, well to be perfectly honest, is totally depressing.

I long for spring.  Did I mention that? 😀 😀 😀

When the spring buds start to burst out of the ground.. and the hyacinths start to bud.

During our spring visit to Hall Place back in 2013, in the greenhouse was this beautiful bottle-brush plant..  I did have one of these plants in my garden… until two retrievers decided to retrieve it from the earth.
