We've had our usual lovely Tuesday at SW and a mooch around Halesworth which was lovely. I chatted to the owner of a little antique shop who said she didn't just work with recycled items but was also recycled herself!! Second marriage!! LOL It was very nice chatting to her.Then we bought some fruit from the fruit shop, beautiful Kent cherries and French plums which are delish and I got a bottle of Rose Lemonade which was very nice too, but 5 syns!! .. and when we were there I went in the shoe shop that sells Gecko shoes and I picked out some for winter, instead of my usual Clark ones. There was also a very nice shop with swooshy skirts and floaty tops if I want the Earth mother look!! I loved them.
We had a lovely coffee and I resisted the homemade cakes because I lost 2lbs this week; but did anyone see Nadya's programme last evening and now I want to make cheesy scones with chive butter, nom nom!
Later at home on we tackled pruning the rose over the front door...
And this is how it looks now...our house number can be seen at last
This sunflower plus three others were free from the birds.
One of my favourite flowers, a cleome.
And this is the view down the garden, you can just see our circle of grass we're leaving to grow, although Nell has made a pathway through the middle! The long grass has gone, but having been left so long before it was cut, it is very yellow.. we just need some rain to green it up. And an amazing poppy...what a centre!
I love, love living here!
