Here I am sat in my garden enjoying the sunshine listening to the little birds 
and admiring my gardening efforts.
That's better, week over. Oh it's been long, so long.
 I've had not much time for much really, what with the technical blip and the hideous weather.
But we did have some highlights.
Bit of a Springwatch moment here, I know it's a crap photo but this buzzard was right above our garden being mobbed by crows, by the time I'd grabbed my camera the other crows had moved away and the birds were much further away! This was so cool to see for two reasons one it's amazing to see such aggressive behaviour towards such a supreme predator and the other reason as we live in a town not the usual place to see a Buzzard anyway. Brilliant!

Some pretty flowers in the garden have started to bloom, love the colour.
I'm really pleased with how the garden is looking at the moment, a bit of work earlier in the year has really paid off.

Wednesday saw us atop the Round Tower (it's a rule if someone is going on a journey you must go to the tower whatever the weather to wave) waving my Mum and Dad off on a Norwegian adventure, the pirates were there!

And along came the boat 'Minerva'
Guess what we looked and looked but couldn't see them anywhere.
Not a glimpse.

After the waving we hit the allotment for some serious harvesting of 
yummy fruits not bad considering the rain we've had.

Speaking of rain look at how it made my waterlily look so gorgeous

and there has been some crochet, more bicycle bunting, now aint that cute, get yerselves a bike and get some bunting love going on, go on it'll make you smile!

Hope you have a glorious weekend.
Midsummer, HA!
How are you relaxing?
Mmmmm stretching now. 
Must be coffee time best I get myself dressed, maybe a do-nut with that coffee. 
Think I'll potter after that, maybe a bit of hooking in the garden, yup that sounds very
See you later


  1. Love your photo's the Buzzard and the crow is particularly cool. :)

  2. Glad to hear you're relaxing! It's just what you need. Great shot of the buzzard and crows.

  3. I was going to comment on your last post but guess what... the internet went down for 48 hrs!!
    The garden ( and fruits) of, look lovely.

A beautiful day here in Portsmouth. A hint of Spring in the air and the first outdoor spinning of the year.

It felt good to be outside listening to the birds and soaking up the warm sunshine on the deck.

The cats thought so too! Ghetto having a stretch.

Lord Howard(as he is now known!) relaxing! After an hour sitting in the sunshine it was on with my walking boots and off to the sea.

First stop Milton Common, the sky full of Brent Geese chattering as they flew overhead.

The Solent was particularly sparkly today.

The Hard in Old Portsmouth looked higgledy piggledy and colourful.

Then a final treat as I wandered home, a glorious sunset. A day to lift the spirits and make me glad to be alive! Hope you've all enjoyed a wonderful weekend too. Love ♥Sue♥

Back in the zone

Hello So it's been a while but I think it's safe to say that I'm back in the zone! The spinning wheel is out and I'm loving it. Loving the calm rhythmic movement of fibre flowing through my fingers, watching the bobbins fill with gorgeous colour, enjoying the meditative process that spinning is. I've been spinning some beautiful Alpaca and silk that I dyed AGES ago. It's very soft and fluffy but spins up really well wanting to be thin and sophisticated.

I've also been admiring this beauty, I know a rainbow landed on the rug! It's Milk Fibre, it take dye amazingly well, it's incredibly fine and slippery. I tried spinning it 'neat' but it proved impossible so I'm carding it with Merino.

What do you think?

I'm really pleased, I'm a carding newbie but again it's a wonderful process which I find completely absorbing.

I'm planning on carding each rainbow colour separately I'll let you know how it goes.
So how are you all? Hopefully f…
