Hello there ..
A lovely sunshiny morning here ..
just thought I would share it with you..
I had a wander along the front of the house ...
peeping out of the bottom of the hedge ..
a row of old boots.
These are the symbols of a life lived with work to provide and feed us ... a good little place..
a little graveyard .. a resting place for our old friends.
Nature has garland them with pretty swathes of moss and flowers bedeck their tops ..
they rest in a pretty place.
You may ask what I was doing wandering around in the freezing cold .. sunny Yes.. but still cold.
Well I was doing my everyday jobs ...
fetching in the milk from the gate ..
yes we still have a Milkman deliver .. and I treasure him!
There is nothing like milk out of a glass milk bottle. Who still has a milkman?
I think they are becoming a rare breed .. such a shame.
And of course the Girls have to have their tit bits ..
just a bit of old bread today .. and a handful of oats.
The big jug contains fresh water for the Girls.
So cold the water in the bird bath was frozen hard.
I filled up the wild bird feeding places ..
poor little things .. its cold for them.
Mind you yesterday there was a lot of 'Hot Action' going on in the hedge .. as the Gents were pursuing the Ladies ready for spring .. and nests full of babies.
And I found these ... just look how pretty ..
hiding away in the corner of the garden.
I just had to pick a few for the table ...
doesn't that pink just brighten your day!
Hope you have had a good day ... any snippets of spring in your garden yet?
