Did you get a but of sunshine this last weekend? I hope so, it's good for the soul isn't it? Today is Monday, and it's a bit of a bedraggled day, so I'm turning to my photos from the weekend to give myself a bit of cheer. We visited another open garden on Saturday, and the tables were set up beautifully. It's grey and lumpen outside and I'm in the mood for colour and sunshine, so here we go, a bit of indulgence on my part.
We did our usual first port-of-call, the tea tent. My Mother-in-Law, Susan, visited the garden with us, and Hugo and Susan went to get the teas and scones, whilst I chose somewhere to sit from a group of empty tables. I thought it was a bit strange that there were so many empty tables. Beautiful, but very empty.
We all sat down in eager anticipation of our yummy looking scones and cups of tea.
Oh dear. I've never left a scone in my entire life, I love scones, and Hugo will eat anything, but he couldn't eat his either. What a shame. Still, the table decorations made up for the scone incident, they were glorious.
There were some more open gardens on Sunday, but I worked in my garden all day, apart from when I was taking two baby Seagulls who had fallen out of their nests, (and wouldn't have survived without my intervention according to the vet), up to the wildlife centre. They were small and covered in fuzzy grey down, and very helpless. One flapped it's wings, and I was amazed at the wing span on such a small a bird. They're safe and sound as I write this, getting all the love and care they need to grow into great big fat Seagulls, like the one's on all the roofs of the houses around here. The mother wasn't very happy about me taking the babies away, but the vet insisted they wouldn't survive if I left them there, there was a lot of squawking and cries from the Seagulls circling above us.
I've started on the first sleeve of my knitted dress, ripped that out, and started again. Sorry, no photos just yet, but there will be more on Wednesday.
I must love you and leave you know, I'm itching to do some knitting. See you Wednesday! Love Vanessa xxx
