The weather has been so unkind to some around the world lately.
Here in deepest Devon, the sun is out, along with the bees who are working hard.
We don't share everything with the bees.
This is the best time of year when flowers from our garden start to come inside.
This guy defiantly stays outside. He has beaks to feed like everyone else at this time of year.
Not one of the best close ups of a slow worm. Although they are harmless, I was in a hurry with the camera to put in a bit more distance between us. They aren't slow by the way, they are fast movers.
Another guy that stays outside.... this is only a baby they do get bigger. There are lots of them in our veggie garden this year. As long as they stay out of my way, I promise you, I stay out of theirs.
We haven't spent all our time outside this week. You might think making a new pin cushion is no big deal.
My old one is over thirty years old. A few Amie Soto Blossom sparkly bits were added to the dog's collar. This is a really cute little pattern that Sew Cindy sent me back in February. It even has instructions......
Trouble is, I think he looks far too good to start sticking pins in him.
Thank you again, for all your good wishes for Amie Soto Blossom lately.
There isn't a get well senario. Amie is an old lady. Age is getting the better of her.
Ames went to see the "oh such a lovely guy" Mr Vet again yesterday. The journey tired her out, so forgive her for not looking at the camera. Car journeys other than to see Mr Vet aren't an option for her anymore. She gets stressed, even if she does sit in her own seat in the car along on her own fluffy blanket and water dish and cookie's on command, oh, almost forgot the most important thing, she has her very own chauffeur. But then you all know that.
She takes her heart pills every morning and every evening. Unfortunately she isn't in a hurry to rush her tea as she used to do.. There's a lot of coaxing going on to get her to eat, unless she has fishies in her tea bowl. She has had fishies quite often lately.
Even her cookies are left hanging around the cottage, not wasted as Mew loves Amie's cookies.
For once even Frank helps out.
What Amie leaves in her tea dish Frank will help her out by eating it.
