Adulting

Adulting

Adulting is something that my 20 year old daughter is getting a crash course in at the moment. She recently accepted a job as a pathologist assistant at Southampton General Hospital and ahead of moving in with us on Sunday she's had her first taste of  preparing to 'leave home'.

Coming home to Spring

Coming home to Spring

Our apple tree is in blossom, but not as much blossom as previous years. I don't think this is a bad thing necessarily as last year it had so much blossom and then branches snapped under the weight of apples. Spotted in the garden, Starlings nesting under the roof tiles and sparrows making a home in our bird box - I could watch them coming and going with twigs and moss in their little beaks all day!

190. HDYGG - Exbury Garden re-opens for Spring

Regular HDYGG-ers will know that I often share photos from local Exbury Gardens. The Gardens close over Winter and have just re-opened for 2017. Monday, when they opened was a wet and rather dreary day and truth be told I did sulk a little about that. But fortune favours the sulkers and on Tuesday I awoke to blue skies and sunshine. I knew exactly where I needed to go!
