Oh to be in England…

 

Well, it was April after all

and the log fire burned merrily in the hearth.

The ghost was nowhere to be seen

though the light bounced off all sorts of things in the sitting room.

The dew was heavy on the lawn.

Outside the kitchen

a single red tulip in the grass – and Marmite on the window sill.

Houses galore

even a house fit for a hobbit.

Cowslips, dandelions, grape hyacinth  and tulips make a lawn in the orchard.

Primroses too

just look at the grass

and peek in at the windows.

Primroses under the rose.

  1. oh, how quintessentially, and prettily english! the window sills, the colors, the garden…
    my garden seems to be the battlefield for young buck deer, or their dinner buffee. apple trees are starting to bloom, hoping the weather will hold until bloomings done. it’s been unusually warm and sunny for the last week or so. the garden needs a ton of work which the one with two good hands isn’t very interested in doing. oh well.
    the cast is coming off on thursday, there will be another scar as the doc couldn’t use the previous spots. he, or someone else, nicked nervus ulnaris during surgery and my pinky and ring finger are somewhat numb, hoping that will pass with time.
    hugs, belly rub for buster!
