This time last year I was celebrating the change in the weather, the coolness in the air and the Orange tinge that was beginning to creep into the leaves. This time, it’s warm, muggy and the rain still attempts to interfere! But at the weekend we ventured to the meadow when the sun was high in the sky and the temperature was creeping over thirty celcius. Crazy warm.



I cannot believe how much has changed there. Admittedly, since moving I haven’t been able to get to the meadow as much as I used to which makes every trip that little bit more special and I no longer take the peacefulness for granted.



The trees are grown up. They’re huge! The little babies that were planted a few years ago, that I thought would take years to grow to any kind of height, are actually doing amazingly well. This doesn’t bode well for our little tree that we planted in the garden at home, not worrying how big it would get because it would be years….ah well!




The dogs loved it, Maisy would do anything for a drop of water and got up to some straw antics desperate for a drop even though there were two whole lakes to choose from.






Buddy has become more and more adventurous in the water and of course he loves any excuse to have someone to chase around the meadow too, which is where Maisy comes in handy. She has him sussed well though, sit on the edge and let the boys do the work…!

“You can cut all the flowers but you cannot keep Spring from coming.”

I missed a week of blogging, but I took photos so this will be a bumper edition of the weekly challenge! I’m not quite sure where time has gone since Christmas, but we’re already in Spring and it’s a bit of a blur. The last few weeks photos have mostly been Maisy. After our weekend of digging and planting, she decided it was good fun to lie down in our freshly dug flower bed. And when we weren’t looking, have a good old dig.


So we decided that if she really wanted to lie down outside, she could take her bed with her and stop using our hard work for a cushion…!


We finished off the garden yesterday, planting up a few bits and pieces and sorting out the pots. It feels good to have some colour in it and the Bees are already heading in which is great to see.

We invested in an umbrella for the table, one with a fancy handle thing so you don’t have to struggle putting it up and taking it down! Now all we’re saving our pennies for is a BBQ for some hopefully warm summer evenings having dinner outside. Then our garden is complete!


We took Maisy somewhere new for her walk on Friday. She loves exploring on long walks, but even more than that she loves chasing a tennis ball. So we took our trusty ball thrower and within fifteen minutes she was…

It was a beautiful walk though, and a lovely warm evening – so nice to have some daylight beyond five PM as well! This was also the day of the eclipse – but typically this weather didn’t hit us until mid afternoon. The morning just went a little bit cloudy and dark, no sign of the sun until lunchtime!

There have been some beautiful sunrises, and sunsets. All of which have rounded off a day nicely. It’s great to have a reminder of beautiful things after a tough day…
