It’s been a fortnight since I told you what has been going on in my world.
Mothers’ Day in the UK was 10th March. Ivy felt a bit left out of the process. "Can't I have a present please?"
Some gardening got done. The snowdrops are still looking good.
Cowslips are out.
But most of the garden doesn’t get any sunshine and is still covered in frost and the ponds are frozen over.
There are lots of other things to photograph around the garden. Like these clematis seeds.
On 15th March Ivy had her collar off.
The back door had its cat flap fitted.
And Ivy was allowed out.
“So this is the big wide world.”
Like all cats the first thing she did was climb and before long the sound of piteous meowing was heard from the top of the twenty five foot hedge.
“It’s alright you standing there saying come down. How?”
There’s a different variety of Snowdrop under the back hedge. Well, I might as well be taking photos while she’s finding her way down to ground level again.
On 21st March I was out in the Spring sunshine photographing Daffodils.
It’s a good job I hadn’t got anything too sharp in my hands when the catten kept jumping on my back.
22nd March – Three inches of snow.
It totally bemused someone. She kept looking round – first at the snow and then at me. "Is this stuff your fault?"
“I don’t think I fancy going out there. It smells cold.”
And over twelve inches in drifts.
While I was taking this photo
Someone decided to walk out onto the window ledge
And fell off.
She investigated for about five minutes.
And then it was back to the most sensible place in the house.
Foolishly Partner-who-loves-tea and I went out to the shops. P-w-l-t is the one with the red scarf.
It’s beginning to melt
but more snow is forecast and they reckon it will freeze overnight. Oh joy!
