It is a very abundant time in our garden this time of year
(so I am warning you that this is quite a lengthy
and picturesque post if you enjoy garden
in so many different ways especially
with the roses in bloom.
Popping up everywhere you will find forget-me-nots, granny's bonnets, grasses of all sorts,
hydranges, irises, roses - rambling and climbing
beautiful shade tress of Chinese Elms, Japanese Maples, Silver Birches,
Buddleas and places to just sit
and take in all the fragrances, listen to the birds
and watch the Angora goats grazing!
Spectacular colour as in these irises!
And just around the corner is another garden of old world roses
and climbers like this Cecile Brunner and the soft apricot
shades of Crepiscule.
Now on one of the branches of this climber
which happens to be outside my studio
you might remember I mentioned that a Willy Wagtail
was creating a nest
and since then everyday as I have been creating
only metres from my table
I have witnessed the most amazing little miracle
of the entrance into the world
of these three baby Wagtails
and the emergence of each one
from the nest,
the testing, spreading and stretching of their little wings,
gaining strength in their little legs
in readiness for flight!
Now it's not every day that we are blessed with
such an amazing miracle
within just a few feet of where we create just outside -
that's for sure!
And what's more I feel so blessed for
living in such a special place indeed!
Even with all this distraction I have managed to create
a little something ( yes - just a tad lacey!)
for all of my wonderful
followers as a little
which I will be sharing in a Giveaway very soon!
So do stay tuned to enter yourself!
Wishing you all a most relaxing and joyful weekend!
Love, Suzy xxx
