Exploring The Garden And Our First Family BBQ In Years

​Last year, at the end of Summer, we moved into this house that has a lovely little garden. It was the first time in years that I have had a private garden to explore and relax in - quite a treat when you're housebound and severely ill!

Creating A Retreat Away From My Own Bedroom

A beautiful red Lily. Title reads: Creating a retreat away from my own bedroom, personal update.

So much colour, such a joy!

After days of silence and stillness in the garden, on Wednesday morning a brave little birdie came hopping along the fence to inspect the spread. He was very nervous and dashed away at the slightest noise or movement.

He came back though. A few times throughout the day. And then he brought a friend.
