Madelief has just beaten you in the title stakes with a post called, 'Jugs of Loveliness'.
Damm her.....dammm her to hell
There's no beating lovely jugs !!!! XXXX
A follower of Madalief''s, Tom Stephenson? Blimey, you have got class after all!! LOL
Although big ostentatious jugs are hugely over-rated. Much prefer small ones.
today is a national holiday for us (memorial day). spouse and I are being lazy, but we will have a barbecue later with our neighbour. it's getting warm here. baseball is on the radio. cats are sleeping. yeah, simple pleasures.
Oh, that every day held such pleasure...
Not so sure about the "happily" interpretation. I think bumble bees irritate cats a great deal, especially when they can't catch them (or maybe even more if they do... I've seen a cat stung by a caught wasp and that was not a scene of peaceful loveliness)
William is a dog who never catches his bees
I forgot he was a dog. I was thinking of Albert, who is probably more agile than William. Image is indistinct. I thought the black shape was Albert. I get confused.
Should have gone to Spec Savers Andrew.

I love that William has a big silly grin on his face, bless him. We should all be so innocently amused and entertained. When I was a child growing up in Worcs. we had a hairy Heinz 57 sort of dog who loved to roll in cow poo, and when told off would 'smile' in response. Worth the telling off to him I suppose.I wish we could get the Archers here....xx
Your back garden looks beautiful. I had a dog that did that too. I think she got stung sometimes too as she would smack her mouth. Silly dog.
Pretty garden. So it was William that inspired you to blog today.
Oh John …… your garden is looking so pretty…… and what an idyllic picture William paints, playing amongst the flowers. Like something out of Enid Blyton !!! XXXX
What a beautiful garden with sweet William.cheers, parsnip
I'm loving watching our first baby blackbirds of the year hopping round the garden being fed by their mum and dad. Blackbirds nest in our back hedge every year, find food in the garden and use the pond. Makes the washing up much more interesting as I can watch the birds at the same time. Not enjoying the starlings nesting so much. They're in the roof right behind our headboard and wake me up at 5.30 every morning. What a blooming noise they make!!
Absolutely lovely, John; your garden is gorgeous!
Simple pleasures indeed my good fellow, hard if not impossible to beat.
Oh- your garden!
Garden's looking really pretty. Love William, I do. x
It's good he doesn't chase automobiles. What would he do if he caught one? Beautiful garden, by the way.
Ooooh - your garden!
Sweetest photo x
LOVE your garden. And would happily watch the bumble bees and the other critters for hours. With a goofy smile on my face.
Look at the tangle of it all. It's the garden I aspire to.
Awww, bless him!
I don't comment very often but I want you to know I come to visit every week or so and read every post you've made in between. You always warm my heart.
You clearly have two green thumbs, John. Gorgeous.
Thank you for sharing!( '>/))//""ALOHA from Honolulu, ComfortSpiral =^..^=
Do Bumblebees sting?
You'll have to take him home some Teddy Bear Bees when you visit the Land Downunder
Now that is truly a cottage garden...gorgeous.x
Lovely photo.I love watching any of our animals when they are keeping themselves entertained :-)
I'm trying to save the bees and Elsie catches them and eats them.
What a beautiful photo - a perfect cottage garden and a happy dog ..... Blissful 😊
Is that a Montana romping away in the background and love the obelisk- enjoy your day - Jane x
Does William bring you his "Kills" to admire? Len the sprollie often drops a dead fly in my lap and proudly waits for fuss and praise. Just need to train the husband to do the same, only with handbags and pretty jewels! Have a splendid Tuesday.
Cricket on 'The Archers?. Ah, the satisfying sound of the smack of leather on willow. But that's enough for our S/M pasts. (Right, J.G.?)
John your garden is ajoy to behold. Hope William doesn't get his nose stung.
Nothing prettier than a lovely English garden.
What a glorious garden! And a smiling, happy William and his bumble bee friends have elevated the scene to pure delight.
Live like someone left the gate open today
Lovely picture, John.
The garden is beautiful! And Sweet William!
Goodness, it's like the Chelsea Flower Show out there. You can barely see William for all the luxuriant growth!
Your garden is stunning! I thought William is allergic to bee stings? I had to look hard to pick him out amongst all the flowers.Jo in Auckland, NZ
Your garden looks fabulous
