Every Picture Paints a Thousand Words

Those who have been following me for some time know I have had a little time out .. Much refreshed I will let my pictures tell their own story..

So first my ME time saw me getting back to what I love..

 

Lioness and Cub

Close up of Lion

Second My garden.. I just love spending time relaxing and contemplating as I watch the birds.. So here are some of what is in bloom at the moment in Dreamwalker’s Garden..

During the week we had the pleasure of having our 3 yr old Granddaughter for the day.. We took her to a local Farm Park where we fed the goats and birds, as well as seeing so many more.. Please click to the slide show to view closer and view comments

And remember to cherish those special moments in your life..

Thank you for reading..

    Ah Sue, you have exceptional talent my friend, ‘this such a pleasure to view your work, always full of life and so detailed. You made me smile with your mention of your granddaughter and seeing the photo’s the smile broadened… She’s so lucky to have such loving grandparents, and the day must have been marvellous for you all. ‘Me’ time, always good to recharge batteries.. . and re-adjust … The allotments looking so good, hard work I know, but worth the effort for freshness and goodness. Love and light to you, dear friend …. xPenx

      Dear Pen, thank you for your lovely compliment.. It was a marvellous day.. there is still lots to do in the allotments.. but we are taking it in our stride.. ( well mostly Hubbies stride ) I enjoy the planting bit not the digging bit.. 🙂 But will hoe for England but not dig..
      I love gathering the produce and cooking it. 😉 too.. xxx Thank you Pen.. I see we are now back to the normal English weather.. 🙂 Much love to you xox

        So, I have a question then. If they reblog something of yours do they then come to everyone’s emails? I know they are people visiting your site and not mine so thought I should tell you but maybe it is okay as no one else has mentioned it. I am working hard but trying not to and now doing some small projects on the house I did not get done last year so I can put it up for sell at some point. Trying to save money as most people are. Do take care. xoxox

          This seems a little odd Renee… I don’t get many posts reblogged and if they are reblogged it will say reblogged on them.. The emails updates should only come to you if you are following their blogs.. so maybe the notifications are going haywire again… I don’t know?

          Don’t go overdoing the small projects on the house Renee.. and remember to take some time to rest… YOU work so hard… Love to you my good friend xxx Sue xx

            I am trying to to a little at a time and am going to see my dad in CA for Father’s Day in June and so my (much overworked sister) can have a bit of down time? As I see it, she thinks I am giving her a break but she is far worse than myself at not taking it easy. Must run in the family. LOL I will have 16yrs on May 4th with the company and will try to do 2 more and call it good. I simply cannot do 20. I started far too late in the game for that. I will be 62 in August. Do take care. The sun is out today and I am pleased. Love to you as well. xoxox

              Renee, I do hope you find your Dad well when you visit in June.. And lol yes sounds like you and your sister need a few lessons in spending more ME time together to relax rather than working and caring.. Great that you both do so much.. And I can well understand your devotion to a company.. My longest was a 13 yr employment,
              I hit the big 60 tomorrow.. and I am already making plans to spend more ME time away from work… So I can see why making 20 yrs would be stretching you… When can you officially retire in the states? for me they altered the goal posts.. officially I can retire aged 64 and 9 months.. LOL.. but I do not intend to work that long..
              Enjoy the Sun.. I too have been enjoying its warmth.. Now we have forecast more rain for the end of the week.. Much Love back xxxx Sue

              We can retire at any time in the States but do not, of course, get near as much as if you wait longer. I could get more if I waited until my 20yrs were in but I would then be in my 66th year and I’ve decided I simply cannot do it. I will try for 2 more but as there are a myriad of problems with the new system change over, (we do Federal employee claims and must meet criteria) and we cannot remedy it and are put on notice, I may retire sooner. Just so long as I have some money coming in I will live on a budget and that is ok. Take care. xoxox

    What lovely pictures. Your grand-daughter is gorgeous. We have all boys in our family so I love to see your pictures.
    The soil in your allotment garden is very fine and looks great. You have lots of growth in there already. Perhaps we are having a better Spring this year!!! but mustn’t speak too soon. Last Spring was soooooo late, we had to plant most things twice.
    You have a talent for painting. Love to see your work.

      Yes there is still time for a frost and even snow.. the weather is never predictable.. So we will not be planting out any tender shoots until there will be no threat of a late frost.. The allotments had a lot of manure worked in last year.. which has made it much better this year…
      Thank you Oma… Your Grand-boys are just so cute… .. I couldn’t believe how they had both grown.. 🙂

The Farm Park was lovely, made all the better as the weather was so nice.. She asked again yesterday to go again.. But she is now back at pre-school every afternoon.. I am pleased you enjoyed the pastel drawing… Hubby has since framed it for me. I may do a little cheetah cub next.. I love Cats both domestic and wild Big Cats..

      Thank you for saying so Aquileana, 🙂 😀 I think I have all your comments covered now.. Also A curious thing.. I checked in my notifications box and no sign of your comments upon MY posts down the list, although I have got the updates from when I made a comment upon your posts.. I do not feel so bad now… I know that has happened before when I have made comments on posts on other blogs.. I think they have never replied and go back and they have, but the notification never came to my blog that they had.. So a few gremlins as well as me being lapse in keeping a proper check…

      I know I now follow over 267 other blogs and I leave many a comment upon some of them and they never bother to answer of visit… Some I think just like to accumulate followers….. And out of the 500+ followers here only those few loyal ones take the time and trouble to leave a comment… Some too I know just click like from their reader and probably never read posts on many a blog…. I always read even though sometimes I do not have time to comment upon every single post… Some post several a day! … So I have their blogs come in once a week…

      I love your visits Aquileana and your wisdom .. and always try my best to get around as many who visit me first.. but often visit in blocks leaving numerous comments on their pasts posts all at once… I am sure some think I neglect them, and I do.. there is only so many hours in a day… then I have a mad spree of catch ups.. You will find as the Summer days get longer my visits to WP always gets less.. as my garden and allotment take priority.. As we grow our own food, and spend important family time…

      Wishing you a wonderful Wednesday… I am off to work later this afternoon and will be returning in the morning.. Bad planning I know as its my big day tomorrow… 😉 Once again Aquileana.. Many thanks for you support and for your time and thoughtful comments you leave me..
      Blessings Sue xox

I particularly like the ones that have the Indian lady with the the water. I see this relationship with water as life regenerating and the continuity of life. Beautiful artwork!

        Tell her she is patient and that is why she never gets angry and people love her.
        She will try to live up to what you say.
