Sunny Saturday in September

Good morning every one ,Do you like the above picture, Debbie took of me in my garden ? OH I know ! some times I lie ! Debbie did actually make the graphic ,before she went off to Portugal with her husband Dave her son Jason and her Mother in law .....I hope they are having a good time, I miss her,

Maurice is in bed after working the night ,he will work tonight and tomorrow then be on holiday for a few days ,so I hope we will be going out to some places of interest ,I am feeling so much better ,with the bad times getting less and less ...'.thank heaven for little pills '

As you know ,we went to Huntingdon last Saturday ,well on Sunday Maurice went fishing ,then on Monday ,we went to Peterborough ,we went to see Aunty Kitty ,who though so frail is still hanging in there ,very sleepy ,but once she woke up was pleased to see us and we had a glimpse of that lovely humour of hers ,

My daughter Kate had rung me on Sunday to say Martin had painted the pergola ,and they had put the gravel down so of course Maurice was anxious to see how it looked now it was complete, so we went to see her ,,I took the pictures so you can judge for yourselves ,Her hairdresser told her it would be lovely at Christmas ,with lights ,she agreed,saying I could turn it into a stable ,and it would be a good idea to buy the donkey she had seen ,when she bought the calf !! Never misses a trick our Kate !

Well I guess thats it for today I going to venture up to the town with my Trolley,and camera ,The Lavender Blue shop man was dressing the window when I was by there in the week and as I was about to take a picture he asked me not to ,as he hadnt finished it yet ....

Have a lovely weekend everyone ..with Another graphic made for me by Debbie ,see Kizzie on the footstool

I'm glad you've got a nice day, it may rain here,but I've got inside work to do so that's ok.  I hope you get that window picture for us.  I love that little shop.  The pergola is lovely .  It will give them lots of pleasure in all the seasons I'm sure.
Have a great day !  'On Ya' - ma

Glad you have such a nice day for your walk down to the village hope you have a good day with plenty of bargains.  Autumn seems to be missing here and we have gone straight into winter today it is raining and is very cold just 9 degrees outside and its after 12. So glad you are feeling better. By the way sure you will enjoy that Karin Slaughter book you bought last week I really enjoyed it. Still trying to finish my Val McDermid but should get it done over ther weekend.  Love Joan.

I know they Americans will be fascinated by the narrow garden and the houses joined together....everything is so spread out over here....

So glad your feeling better these days Jan...

Glad that you are having sunshine today. The Pergola does look good. Guess next spring she will be planting flowering vines to cover the top for a shade. Have a good time today shopping and taking pictures of the Lavender shop. Your graphics are cute today. Hugs, Helen

Great to hear you sounding `yourself' again, Jan.  These are lovely mellow tranquil days, such a relief after that awful summer; very healing.
The pergola has endless possibilities!
Lots of love,

Love the pergola and the farmyard creatures ;-)
I noticed that Katie has what looks like a 'Goldcrest' conifer, I don't know how long she is planning on living at her house, but that conifer will be about 40ft tall in about 15 years!  I have one in my garden, and the foliage is lovely for using with floral arrangements, but you do need the space for it!  Come Autumn there will be a fair amount of 'culling' going on with my over grown confiers :-(
Car has a flat battery so couldn't get to the market today and haven't seen Lavender Blue's window for a while, so looking forward to the pics.
So glad that you are feeling much better :-D

What a grand job Maurice and Co' did on the Pergola.  Its going to look lovely next year.
I was wondering about your Lavender Blue Shop and there you are...off out to take some photos of it for us all.  I can't wait!
I am truly happy for you Jan that you are feeling so much better.  Keep taking the 'Happy Pills'.

I hope you get out and about somewhere nice soon.  Looking forward to reading all about it when you do.

hugs

What a fun, and pretty little yard.  I love seeing pictures of over there.  So interesting.
I like the little calf.

bobco07 said...

Don't really know how i imagined u2b, but Debs picture of u certainly wasn't it. Allowing 4 the fact i'd just returned frrom a pleasant Saturday afternoon in the pub drinking copius amounts of white wine and 1664 lager with a chum, thought you looked like a hippiechick, which in my world is a good thing, love,peace and happiness 2u.

Oh I love the yard and the pergola.  I can see the Christmas lights on it now!  Glad to hear you are feeling much better.  Modern medicine is indeed wonderful.  De ;)

Oh I love that little holstein calf.  My daughter would actually love something like that.  She's a black & white cow addict. Her whole kitchen is done in that decor.  It's not sunny here today...gloomy and overcast. They say we are to get rain tomorrow.  That's fine with me.    Have a great weekend.....Linda in Washington state

The pergola looks brilliant Jan, well done Maurice! It'd look lovely next summer with wisteria or honeysuckle over it! I'm glad Aunt Kitty is still OK, bless her. Have a lovely Sunday and enjoy Maurices days off. Jeannette xx

Thank you for the photo of your garden and the information about the Hedgehog.

I am pleased to tell you that we too have a Hedgehog visiting us and this is especially wonderful to us for, before moving into the house we now live in and rent, we did not have a garden to call our own; well, we did have a very tiny square at the back of the house, but it was so small we were very lucky to have any kind of visitors to it.

John.
