“And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer.”
― F. Scott Fitzgerald

I hadn’t been to the meadow for such a long time, mainly because life has been very busy but also because it was living up to it’s definition of being a water meadow – but today it was so nice to go back. Whilst my Father mowed paths through the long grass and meadow flowers, we taught Buddy to swim across the small lake!



3Buddy isn’t as adventurous as most dogs with the water, but after some coaxing and cheerleading from both sides of the lake, he eventually stopped running around it to get to us and instead, swam across. It was a proud moment! He did that a few more times, then got tired. So we wore him out even further by getting him to pose for various photos!




9William even posed a few times too! It was lovely just being out in the sunshine, and forcing the hay-fever to peak and then regress a little. I’m feeling a lot more refreshed after a day of being very ill yesterday so the calmness and relaxing environment really helped…and inspired me to get snapping again with the camera!

Just an update on Star, she’s doing really well and whilst she’s not up to roaming the meadow anymore, she’s doing really well at roaming the garden and house! Here’s some upbeat music to go with the mood of the day…

“If the sun does not light your way up, simply ask the moon.”
― Yannick Heywang

A few days ago, in the early evening before it got dark, the sun came out. It was a truly beautiful sight. Being into Photography and also connected to so many people across the world through social media, I am lucky enough to be able to glace at an image full of sunshine, taken on the exact same day that I’m staring out of the window at greyness and rain. However when it happens properly, after such a long period of awful weather – it’s literally a moment when the “heavens open and a ray of light bursts through…”

Throughout December, sunlight is forgotten in favour of frosty starts and windy days. Come January though, I’m just about ready for that burst of sunshine (which we haven’t seen since January 1st). So what better way to celebrate it, than to make Buddy pose for me outside and catch some rays!
