In The Garden

 


It’s a glorious day, bright and sunny.
I haven’t done a great deal but wash my new duvet set that Dorothy thoughtfully pissed upon last night and pot up the little french half hanging basket by the front door which had dried out in the dry spell we’re having. 
Sea Pinks or drift as it is also known as, wasn’t my first choice for potting up but I think they will look nice flanked by simple white violas , against the old stone of the cottage walls.
I repaired my gargoyle , fixing him back on his plinth with some fixative and spoke to Mrs Trellis as I brushed the paths free of blown rubbish.
“ I knew you were in “ she observed “ there is washing on the field gate” 
Dorothy dozed on the lawn as I watered the planters
And as she looked so comfortable  I laid down next to her in full view of passers by and promptly fell asleep

  3. What a wonderful picture. I have wonky knees. Sometimes when I get down to do some weeding and garden work it's hard to get up. The dog loves it if I stretch out and lay on the grass with her, then she can help me up, haha.

    1. She’s still difficult at times. I bought a new duvet and cover yesterday and Bess use it was new she peed on it

    2. Sometimes an Enigma machine would help with deciphering your posts. I have however figured out that "Bess use" probably means because (or should I say pro able jeans because?)

  7. You've accomplished a lot. Washing, potting up plants, fixing the gargoyle. Our fur babies do create work. My Caesar bumped my gargoyle off his perch and I had to patch and glue the broken parts. The quiz should be fun. You and Mave are the winning combination!

    2. Meaning "fourth"? Or did you really come forth, as in advancing with all guns blazing?

    How nice to have a lovely day to potter about in the garden and even to have a nap in the sunshine. As you apparently know, everyone should keep their gargoyle in good repair!
    Hope your team does well in tonight's contest. Mave is counting on you.

    Hugs!

  11. That's a funny mental picture of you stretched out sound asleep on the grass with Dorothy. I imagined Mrs. Trellis helpfully phoning the police to report a murder because your washing was still out on the field gate

  12. Lawn naps are so good.

    Either you didn't have any passers by when napping or those that did pass by didn't care enough to check if you were ok.

  14. I love your gargoyle and the half hanging basket, very pretty. Dorothy looks very contented.

  15. I LOVE your gargoyle...looks just like my Turbo in hot pursuit of a pheasant! Hope you are not working tomorrow and can have another day to enjoy the sunshine and recover some energy. x

  16. Dorothy looks well comfy-little treasure.That is a great gargoyle John-I pass 3 dragons I think they are in various poses on a house roof regularly.A manufactured dragon who looks to the sky with an expression of disdain-not sure why sits near my back door for protection from negative vibes x

  17. A nap in the sun sounds like fun.

  18. I love gargoyles and yours is wonderful! Our pets usually do know how to get comfy for a nap and the warm sun always helps. Good luck tonight!

  19. A man after someone's heart. Love it.

  20. I love gargoyles. Yours looks like a dog fixated on a rat hole.

  21. I don't know anyone who finds it easier than you to drop off in the sun - and don't go blaming Dorothy.

  22. It sounds (and looks) like a wonderful day.

  23. When we had a house in the country I’d be tending to my flowers then plop down next to our mutt, Maggie for a bit. Maggie passed a year ago at the age of 15 and I can say lying next to her in the sun is one of the things I miss most about the old girl.

  24. It looks and sounds like paradise. Glad no one phoned emergency services when they saw you sprawled alongside Dorothy.

  25. I adore looking at your cottage and the fabulous garden ! What a lovely day.

  26. now that is a proper gargoyle!

    ReplyDelete
  27. OK that's it...we MUST have a gargoyle at the farm!

    That pic of Dorothy is wonderful.

  28. That's WONDERFUL! Taking a nap with your dog! Love it!

  30. Fixing with fixative? I wish my job was so easy to explain.

  31. I used to lie on our fields with our orphan goats and cloud watch in the sun. The were so curious they would snuggle up to me and nibble my ears. I expect a dog would just be snoring! Anyhoo fabulous looking day for it and smashing gargoyle... I need one but wouldn't know where to put it in my 70's style property.

  32. I am here to give my testimony about Dr Ose  who helped me in my life, i want to inform the public how i was cured from (HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS) by dr Ose spiritual, i visited different hospital but they gave me list of drugs like Famvir, Zovirax, and Valtrex which is very expensive to treat the symptoms and never cured me. I was browsing through the Internet searching for remedy on HERPES and i saw comment of people talking about how dr Ose spiritual cured them. when i contacted him he gave me hope and send a Herbal medicine to me that i took and it seriously worked for me, my HERPES result came out negative. I am so happy as i am sharing this testimony. My advice to you all who thinks that their is no cure for herpes that is Not true just contact him and get cure from dr Ose spirirtual healing spell cure of all kinds of sickness you may have. penis enlargement
    Remember delay in treatment leads to death email him @ {oseremenspelltemple@gmail.com} whatsapp  +234813 648 2342
