A Random Visit, The Garden and The Wall, Part 2.
Just a bit of random stuff today, if you’ve got a mo. A brew may come in handy. Oh, and a biccie or a cake would be nice.
Yep, it’s one of those posts. Just me, waffling about “stuff”. Hope you don’t mind.
Now, is it me or does this year seem to be zooming by, even though there isn’t much we can do outside of our homes except walk about a bit – but not for long and only for essentials etc etc.
Well, despite not being able to “do much” I seem to have been very busy over the last few weeks. The end of winter came and the clocks changed and all of a sudden there have been gloriously long sunshiney days to enjoy the garden in and, oh my, hasn’t nature been busy?!
Things are popping up and out everywhere!
Even this weird thing …
Even the wildlife have resurfaced with the deer making the garden a regular visit on their rounds.
Mind you, they don’t half make you plop yourself when you are shuffling around the garden and they suddenly bolt. Had to have a cup of tea after this one shot out from the hedge and vaulted the fence. Nimble!
Nimbler than me as by the time I had climbed onto the bench to get a better view, it had legged it to the top of the hill!
Anyhoo, remember that wall that I started smashing down? If not, check this blog post out. Well, I’ve actually made some progress recently – huzzah!
It’s making a difference to this little bit of garden by letting in lots more sunshine.
I am about halfway now. Still got to knock down the shorter bit on the right, remove that bed that’s got all the rubble on it and then create some wooden steps that will lead down to the “courtyard” – sounds posh, dunnit? Lol. Well, I don’t particularly enjoy mowing so graveled courtyard appeals to me.
Look forward to sharing the progress with you, about April 2022, lol!
Some of you have been asking about my little visitor – next door’s doggo – as I haven’t shared many pics of her lately. Well, to be truthful, she hasn’t been around much. Must have been the glum weather not inspiring her to do her rounds that lead past my door.
Anyhoo, with the better weather she seems to be spending more time outdoors and therefore, you can guess who’s been getting visits…
… well, she shows up when I’ve cooked bacon. So, yeah, perhaps it’s not me she comes to visit, lol!
Can you believe the picture top left? Silly moo snuck on the sofa, wanted her belly scratched and then cuddled up to my arm like I had nothing better to do than have a nap there and then.
Ok, maybe five mins.
You’ve probably seen the stuff I’ve been making if you follow me on social media and this blog but the thing that I was most proud of making this week was … a TIDY craft area!
I know; it only lasted while I slept and then by 10am it was a bombsite again …
You know, looking at this, it’s not a bad life really, is it?
Right, anyhoo, back to reality – the dishes need doing.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope that I haven’t bored you to sleep – WAKE UP! Lol.
Take care and I’ll be back soon with more nonsense.
Bye for now.
