Friday Afternoon

Sitting out side under the awning on my own with some time, I didn't expect, to myself. It's
roughly 26 degrees very pleasant looking at a newly mowed law and  the greenery around me then looking  at our pink, white, and red peonies. Every few minutes I get a waft of their scent it's delicate for such large flowers and the frowsy loose petals show off their  beauty.

Having a new bird feeder that seems to standing a lot of traffic from some lovely yellow birds mostly coming around lunch time to feed, the chipmunk pops out about the same time for any castings that will give him his lunch. I've watched a black squirrel trying hard to get some seeds from the feeder away at the top which ( thank goodness ) doesn't move.

John has planted pots of red geraniums a Favourite of mine and they are just shooting up very well with lots of buds because of all the rain we have had in the last few weeks, our herbs are doing well too, parsley thyme mint and the bay bush I manage to winter over are enjoying some sun and the breeze.

It's not that often we sit outside, even more so on my own, we rush through the garden more often than not! usually with groceries . Right now I feel very grateful having sat for a while and let nature entertain my mind it"s very relaxing and giving my brain a brief but lovely experience just letting everything slip into the background and taking the time to breath, look and listen like a little vacation that dropped in to say HI wondered where you were!



  1. Those little vacations are so wonderful, and I believe, so important.
    Your garden looks lovely. We are due for rain and more rain. Yikes, but I'd like some sunshine.
    Wishing you and John a beautiful weekend.

  2. oh it looks so calm and peaceful and I envy you the start of the "spring" season. I love that time of the year when everything wakes up and feels so fresh. I hope you get a lot of mini vacations.
    Love the peonies. I never knew they came in pink.
