I love white roses and tulips. This photo doesn't do justice to the tulips unfortunately. They are the deepest purple but with the light of the window and the flash of my camera they look a lot lighter than they actually are.
Ever get the feeling you're being watched?
We've had a bit of an overhaul in the garden this last week
and as a surprise D has had my Dragons Den treated with preserver in Cuprinols Pale Jasmine on the windows and Wild Thyme on the main building. My next door neighbour tells me she is very jealous as it's now the colour she would of loved to have put on her summer house but her husband always does it in the same old dirty brown colour as she calls it.
We lost a fair bit during the stormy weather but the daffs are still in bloom around the garden.
Whilst enjoying sitting in the garden I also managed to get to grips with my school read revisited challenge. So many of you had mentioned Of Mice and Men which was a book I didn't read at school but all three of my big kids did, so I thought that I should have this as my school read for March. As there are only 122 pages I was able to sit and have a good read whilst enjoying a glass of wine and soon managed to work my way through it across the weekend. I can see why so many of you enjoyed reading this one and wish it had been on the curriculum at the time I was sitting my exams.
Whilst driving into the office I suddenly spotted little wagging tales in the fields. I always feel that Spring has arrived when I see the lambs, again photo's not brilliant as only had my mobile with me at the time and I'm still getting to grips with the camera on it.
But then best of all I spotted a pair of buzzards gliding high above the tree tops. I absolutely love them but don't normally get the opportunity to stop and watch them or get any photo's.
I really need to be a bit more proactive at taking my camera out with me and hopefully I will get some better shots to show you. Of course I probably won't spot them again for months. I had to tear myself away in the end or I would of been late for work I could of stayed there for hours just watching them.
Hope you're all having a good day.
