Making the most of Sunny days in between showers is what most of us in the UK are used to. I have to say this week has been topsy turvy weather-wise, with Sunshine and Showers at at times high winds. which reeked havoc in some coastal places such as Devon and Cornwall .
So in-between the showers this week I have had a project on going. I decided to repaint the garden furniture, which must be at least 15 yrs old. It was looking very shabby and by the time I had scrapped yet more lose paint off it, it was looking even more worse for wear.
I have to say painting these three pieces look me longer than I thought. and by the time I finished my arm and hand knew about it 🙂
But the finished results were well worth the discomfort and aches for a few days.
We have been busy in the allotments and I took down the nets from the loganberries as they were about all finished and gathered in. I gave half a net to hubby who had ideas for the small fish pond
The wind meant the leaves were coming off our evergreen bushes fast and furious as old leaves died. So the pond was needing to be cleaned most days from the debris.
So Hubby made a frame using the fruit net to help as a barrier. The Fish also love the screen as they now no long submerge when they see our shadow. So we get to see them, and they don’t get a fright from us.
All creatures great and small
Spiders have been making their presence known to me all week. They no doubt have been prompting me in my creative skills, And not only the spiders but I had a lovely long visit on my washing line from this lovely butterfly The Red Admiral.
I have also had some time out to meditation and over several of them I kept seeing within them a face.. So yesterday I sat down with sketch pad and tried my best to capture the image of the face that kept popping into my meditations.. I have yet to find out his name.. but his smile was enough to reassure me all is well in my world.. I feel he is Tibetan .. So here he is
I hope you all have a fabulous weekend as I am taking a Nature Break ..
Sending you all my love
See you all Very Soon
