Spring has sprung

I have been so busy over the winter, that I have completely forgotten to take photos of anything other than classes.

When I woke up this morning the sun was shining, the birds were singing and so I decided to get up. After much cleaning, hanging the washing out, tidying away and feeding of the many cats I have, I glanced at the clock and it was 9am. I still don’t know what time I actually got out of bed but it must have been early.

Anyway, while hanging out the washing I noticed my long neglected garden and decided to take some before photos. The after photos will be taken in a few months time when my garden looks as beautiful as it once used to. This is my summer resolutionSmile

With the spring comes bursts of buds and flowers

And with the new life comes the end of some of my favourite shrubs especially my 12 year old Bottle Brush shrubSad smile

Better look for a new one me thinks as I don’t see this one flowering again.

I even had time to play with my cats.

Here is Harry hiding under his favourite fern tree.

And Bonny just ignoring me as usual, however she is an old lady of 14 so she’s entitled.

There’s loads of work to do. Lets hope the sun keeps shinning.
