The View From My Garden


The cockerels are crowing  somewhere in the trees on the left.
They are chattering too as Albert stalks a rabbit in the shadows of the small bell tower
The crows above the sycamore are surfing the wind again and will crow a three crow warning when they see me in the garden with my bucket of coffee

Somewhere in the village, a dog is barking

    1. You should put some photos on your blog

  3. A Welsh idyll - which could just as well be in England too, I suppose.

  5. I didn't realise crows crow three times as a warning. They sit on our chimney pots and taunt Elsie. They've dived at her a couple of times.

  9. i hear the pigeons cooing their morning coos as they wait for a pedestrian to drop part of a bagel. the W's are barking at a drunk stumbling his way home. delivery trucks are rumbling by avoiding potholes on the street. somewhere in the city i hear three ambulance sirens wailing. if i listen closely, i'm sure i will hear a gunshot.

    morning in the city.

  15. Murdering rabbits in churchyards seems like sacrilege to me.

  16. Sounds like a good cure for a busy week. If only you could translate cockerel chatter...wouldn't that add another color to the scene.

    3. Go easy on John, Mavis....he's a delicate flower. A haiku is a structured poem, 3 lines, first and last lines are 5 syllables, the middle is 7.

  23. What a beautiful lush green view. I can see why you love this village.
    I love to sit and listen to the quiet mornings. The chattering of birds the breeze floating by and then the snurfulling of iwinston zooming by on the hunt for lizards.

    How lovely and serene. Yes, that's a view well worth staying for ... among many other good reasons, of course.

    What shall you do today? I plan to cut fabric strips and add it as a border to a small autumn quilt. Yesterday I sewed a button back onto a blouse and finished two small star quilts. I'm a happy quilter! First, coffee.

    Hugs!

  26. That view and the peace and quiet it evokes suggests to me a beautiful new state of peace in your life John. Hope I am reading you right.

  27. Is morning your favourite time of day or perhaps evening with the last walk with the dogs? I sit on my back step in the morning surveying my domain, very peaceful. Today absolutely quiet except for the rain. Oh and my threats to the dogs to get their sorry little butts out to the grass for a pee.

  28. Lovely view. So glad things seem to be settling down.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Very lyrical description. It's good to see you're saying MY garden now.

    Why do you call it a "bucket'' of coffee?

    ReplyDelete
  30. Think homemade chicken soup.. just an idea!

  31. I love your blog...for all the reasons others express and more. The churchyard next to your home looks like a park...how wonderful to have that nearby. Is the new little bulldog with you long term?

  32. A good view..can we see the other view as well please?

  33. It's all bloody go in Trelawnyd eh? In my village the only sound is of the wind, although added just a few moments ago by the satisfying snick of the cap coming off of my second bottle of Old Jock beer (6.7% abv) from Broughton Brewery. Cheers.

  34. Beautiful view - how restful and timeless - we live on a farm and also have beautiful views which I never tire of - good for the soul. Take care.

  35. Do your cupboards house anything less than "buckets" for coffee? I wonder.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Looks more or less perfect! There's always a dog barking no matter where you are.

  37. Lovely idyllic scene John it reads like a script I can picture in my mind.

  38. A charming view.

    I like to hear a dog bark in the distance but there is one a few doors along who barks when left home alone, it's sad.

  39. Our neighbour has 3 chickens and one makes the most noise, I call it 'Square Eggs' and nothing else could cause all that noise!

  40. What a wonderful picture, created by the photo and your words.
