Pure Indulgance

Will you indulge me?  Just a little?
When I was a little child, I always wanted to live in a cottage in the country with a horse, a dog and cats.  I tried to get a horse - and failed.  The same can be said about a dog.  But we've always had cats, and we moved to a cottage in the country 10 years ago.  There is barely a week that goes by, when I don't look outside and think that we are lucky.  I am so glad we have been able to bring up our son in such surroundings.

In my childhood dream, my cottage had roses round the front door.  Pink, of course.

And this is what I have grown.  I love walking up the path when the rose and clematis are in flower.

Having taken this photo, I thought I'd have a wonder around to see what else was looking good today.

 The apple tree and shrub have created and archway at the door of the greenhouse.
(Please ignore the junk outside!)

 The vibernum is stunning.  I love that the snowball is made up of so many individual flowers.

 The bees were out in force at lunchtime.

 And a little butterfly. 

Thanks for stopping by.  I have enjoyed sharing the garden with you.



  1. It's so beautiful. I too dream of a cottage with roses round the door...I suspect a lot of people do! It's nice that after so many years living in your home that you are still excited by it. x

  2. It looks lovely... gorgeous photos :o) Hugs, Lisa x

  3. Beautiful pictures and so wonderful that you are living your dream! Thanks for the comment on my "fleece to garment" post - if you would be so kind as to send details of the spinning guild your mum belongs to, that would be wonderful. My email it craftsfromthecwtch(at)gmail(dot)com.
