Nymans Gardens

I met up with a friend for a walk at a National Trust property on Wednesday - not far away from here.  Nymans Gardens is a favourite of mine.  I have been a NT member since Matt was a baby.  There was nothing better than packing a picnic and spending a few hours at Nymans.  We certainly got our money's worth in those early days!

I don't visit Nymans so often these days - I really must put that right.  I lovely place to spend a couple of hours and the tea and cake is always good.

So, if I know what a lovely place it is, why an earth didn't I take my proper camera?  No, I've no idea either!  But I think you can get an idea of just how pretty and colourful it is at the moment.

Wishing everyone a happy weekend.  I'm off to Spain on Monday, so I won't be posting, but will still be reading your blogs, but rather than from sunny Sussex, I shall be laying in the sun, with maybe even a glass or two of wine!

My Puppy

Yesterday was a very important day - puppy choosing day!  :) :)

He will come home as soon as we are back from our holiday.

Introducing "Bouncing Basil", which is his Kennel Club name, but I rather like Basil.  He is a Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier, so will change from looking like a teddy bear, to a rather handsome medium sized, cheeky, golden coloured dog!

I can hardly wait.

Garden Colour - Summer 2015


I hope everyone has had a good weekend.

Matt has gone off to CCF camp to run round playing soldiers.  He loves it!

I spent most of yesterday at a card class - Zentangle inspired.  It was really good fun, with lovely people, and I came home buzzing with ideas.

Today, I've been at home, catching up with house stuff.  I had planned to sit in the garden this afternoon with my crochet and book - but both my parents have visited, the ironing seemed to go on forever, and I had a problem with the external hard drive which I use to back up my computer.  There's always another day to sit and be lazy - it's not long until my holiday!  :)

I did manage to spend some time in the garden though and thought I would share some of the colour with you.  Apologies some of the photos aren't as clear as usual - it is very windy here!

Take care and have a good week.
