Flowers in a neighbours garden …

Today I went to a  house,
in the next street to me
and asked if I could practice taking
flower photos in their garden ..
A lovely elderly couple that I have never
even spoken too.
It took a while to explain what I
was going to do with them ….
The blog …!!!!

The Cosmos is native to Mexico, but the lady of the house,
did say that they grow all over the land in South Africa,
where her friend lives.

I think secretly they were very happy that
someone really notices their garden..
You cannot miss it .. it is beautiful when in
full bloom!!

Deep within ……….

We all have something that we would like to share, but

somehow blogging doesn’t seem right..

Sometimes the past catches up with you

and it can all go wrong ..

Sometimes the past can catch up with you

and it all goes RIGHT!!!!

I am so happy .

I am really happy how this has turned out.

It was an experiment of sorts,

I saw a design on a lovely top and adapted it.

Homemade Tortellini …

I am lucky enough to have

a son, who is a

top chef in the

Royal Air Force 

and the other day at work

they made this for dinner .


filled with

Goats Cheese and Sundried Tomatoes..


It was so delicious.

I would like to blog about him more, but he

doesn’t like it.

One day I will get a photo of him,

with all of his medals!!
