A relaxing Sunday
My morning started as usual. This time though, I could water away, until my hearts content. It was just wonderful to be able to get more water to the withering flowers. While walking around with the house pipe.. poor "Freddy" was looking at me, as if to say "Why dont I have a plant in my pot".. finished the watering , went back into the house to get the clippers .. and filled his little vase full of lovely oleander blooms. They pretty much from the end of spring through to Autumn. To me it seemed he had a smile on his face. Then i decided that it was time i caught up with my happenings in my daily diary.. although its much better to write what happened that day. I sometimes dont get around to it.
I cut some beautiful roses.. that are the hardier kind and decided to get my green table and sit under the pergola.
Went in to get my diary, some ideas for new painting projects. smaller water colours.
There was a light breeze coming through and the day was just perefect.
Even the sun was smiling and saying hello. 38º just perfect.
Inside to put my costume on.. This is where i was.. in and out..
Isaa, looking at me - as if to say "mummy what are you doing"
Isaa and Jeffrey.. Its a hard life mummy..you are wet.
My elusive Hardy. I am so thrilled with this photo.. I took it from the pool. He won't come near me.. thinks i might put him in..but i dont.. he fell in once as a baby, and dont think he ever forgot it. Jeffrey is his daddy and Isaa is his mummy.
Ok.. thats enough mummy.. leave me alone.
If you look carefully on my table.. there is a glass-- "I will leave it to your imagination as to what was in it."- It sure was a happy sunday with my wonderful companions.
