Buds on the Silver Birch tree behind the camelia - hooray!
Our overgrown Winter garden - I can't wait to get out & do some tidying up once it gets a little warmer!
If you look hard enough through the mist, you'll be able to just make out the roof of our neighbour Judith's little stone cottage & the puff of smoke coming from her chimney!
In amongst the chaos of my week, I found a beautiful moment! Rushing out the door yesterday morning I was greeted by something wonderful - blue skies, warm sun & a blaze of pink on the front garden path!!
It seems all the camelias in Stirling have delayed their colouful arrival this year. It has been the talk of everyone in the village & it appears that our dreadfully dry summer was to blame for their very late appearance. However, I'm very happy to report all is well & when I find a moment to do a wander around the garden over the weekend, I'm sure I'll find all my other favourites about to put on a stunning display.
I was balancing the laptop on my knees in the car yesterday afternoon, the sun was streaming in through the windows & for the first time since March it was just fantastic to have my bones warmed by natural sunlight! It will be short-lived however, as it looks like another cold front is fast approaching, but who cares, for a few hours all was perfect with my world & I'll carry that with me all weekend!
I'm so looking forward to visiting you all & seeing what has gone on in your busy lives this week while I've been otherwise occupied - happy weekend everyone!
