    1. OK..thanks for letting me know. Cuz if something was wrong, your sis should know! :)

  4. A nice setting and view from your studio.
    So that is where you get your inspiration for your posts!
    Is that a river or lake in the backround?
    Does your pink dogwood need pruning every year? Mine does but it looks a different variety to your's - must get out the gardening book.

    1. My posts are written from my kitchen desk (page all the way down) and the view is that bird feeder I'm always photographing!
      My studio is in the front of the house and that is our street, not a river....although that would be really fun! It would be like Venice and we could trade the Jeep in for a gondola! haha.
      I don't think we've ever pruned our dogwood!

    4. Now THAT would be funny! I want a pic of that Gloria!

    5. haha...have you seen her cute little teapots with sweaters? They are cute!

      Delete
    6. Yes, I have. They are sweet - but matching sweaters would be a hoot! Do I sound ancient using that word? Ha!

      Delete
    7. Yes ladies me and my little teapots are using sweaters lol

    8. Hi Girls! Just stopped by to say a big Hello to you and also to you Linda!
      Not often I can catch you all together!
      So - where are all those emails?? Come on!! LOL

    9. I guess the girls are quiet today! :)

  9. Could that be any prettier? I don't think so. Love the metal trellis, is it? Adds an interesting dimension to the photo. I would get lost in this view and not get any work done!

    1. Yep, it's a common problem here lately....staring out windows and taking photos. haha.

      Yes, it's a trellis tower. All the green is a clematis that hasn't bloomed yet. It has buds, though!

      Delete
    2. It's beautiful. I love seeing wrought iron in the garden. I am not big on most garden doodads, but I do love wrought iron. And the shape of this is perfect.

    1. It's amazing what a few hours south will do, isn't it? My southern blog friends had blooms in February!

    1. I'm thinking that would be a lovely gift for you!
      Maybe Mother's Day? Is yours the same date as ours?

      Delete
    2. Yes...it is those darn Brits that celebrate earlier...May 11 right?
      My kids have already told me what they have planned for me♥️

      Delete
    3. Sorry to but in . . . . but you have got the date wrong!
      Just like you drive on the wrong side of the road!! LOL
      And your menfolk don't practice archery on Sunday afternoons!

      Delete
    4. Archery? And all this time I thought it was polo! haha. No, our men practice the fine art of napping on Sunday afternoons!

      Delete
    5. I said that because on the staute book it is STILL the law for all males over 16 to practice archery on Sunday afternoons!"
      It couldn't be anywhere else but in Britland could it? lol
      Polo is played only by the asisticracy. Prince Charles used to play it and kept falling off his horse - so he eventually married one called Camilla! ROFL

      Delete
    6. Snickering about Charles. Yes, he did give up a pretty filly for an old stag now, didn't he? ha.

      Delete
    7. Yes and I am helping S garden at Newton St Loe tomorrow and he owns the entire village including the garden we work at!
      And on Monday it is a bank holiday here and the entire village has an open day and several of us are attending.
      He might be there!! LOL
      I was wondering what to do with those eggs in the fridge!! LOL

      My typos are awful - you obviously gathered the word should have been 'aristocracy'

      Delete
    8. Yes, I'm very prolific at reading typo-ese. ha.

  12. So pretty.
    We are still waiting for leaves and greenery here although the grass is looking good.
    I can't wait for the warm weather to move in. Watching children play while standing in the cold is really not my idea of a good time. Too bad I can't send them out alone.

    1. You're good. I'd have them playing inside. haha.

    2. Sometimes I cheat and stand by the window inside and hope they stay on the swing set.

      So mouthy I will be

    2. haha 1000 words at my sea

    3. And Hank better be glad he's up early
      or I'd make his record all squirrely. ha.

    4. Now even sending people to my shore
      Although she doesn't have a blog to explore haha

      Delete
    5. Sending who?
      I sent nobody to you!
      I wouldn't do that to my worst enemy!
      That would change their whole destiny!
      hahaha....

    6. 'Twas I who chose
      To fly like the crows
      And visit Pat Hatt
      At his Eastern mat.

      Delete
    7. About time I made visit to young Pat
      And see what he's doing, that Mr Hatt
      If Suza can fly there like the crows
      Then I guess I can follow wherever she goes.

      Hey this is such a lot of fun
      A poets' corner we've begun
      We all speak in rhyme
      Every moment of the time.

      All we need is one eyed Gloria
      If she brings Spanish 'Thesauria'
      And also Linda, a lovely blonde
      From Canada near a large pond!
