To-day etcetera.

The weather has been so lovely I just had to spend time in the garden this week, I got quite a bit done even managed to plant my bulbs. For my birthday Karen gave me a planter in the shape and design of an old fashioned perambulator , It is lovely, I planted it with Cyclamen and pansies , but have managed to squeeze in a few bulbs. I bought a new rose, a rambler with pale pink flowers, also another Clematis, one of the small flowered varieties, Can’t recall the names right now, I’ll maybe post them up later.

This morning I was determined to wash my windows before the house became like a tomb. Job well done, I then took the dogs for a good walk, had lunch [home made soup ] and as the day was a tad more dull, I wanted to print off a couple of photos of the dogs, I started at 1.30 and was still struggling with the printer at 6.30 The air was blue, I just couldn’t get the thing to print colours properly, I had no Yellow and very little Cyan.  I changed the paper, did maintenance checks, and generally fiddled and diddled around, I did stop for 20 minutes to sample my cake I'd quickly rustled up this morning, and of course the dogs don’t like missing their afternoon cuppa and biscuit. The cake wasn’t bad, just a quick fruit loaf. Back to the printer, I eventually came to the conclusion that it was the cheap replacement cartridges, I’d only put them in about a week ago. da*n and blast. more money for proper Kodak cartridges.

I managed to take the dogs out again at 7 pm.,  the poor souls had been mugging me from 5.30 their usual time.

I’ve also tried to catch up with some blogs to read and leave comments, times like this I’m happy not to have too many followers. I just couldn't keep up.

Well anyway i want an opinion on what picture to paint. so I've put up the three from the previous blog if you’d care to have a look [dogs] and maybe I can narrow it down.


  1. Oh, my! It is going to be beautiful and colorful around your place with all the plants. I hope you will post picture when they are in bloom. You certainly got a lot done and plenty of exercise while doing it. Hugs

  2. I think the 3rd picture would make a beautiful painting. Hugs

  3. You are going to have so many lovely flowers blooming next year! I think any of the pictures would make a beautiful painting.

  4. I think Ruby deserves a portrait all to herself. That Tango gets his paddy paws into everything and all the photos so just for once he should sit back and let the lady have the top spot.


Make my day, leave a comment.....Please? I appreciate every one and will do my best to reply.
