I am conscious...

 I haven’t posted for a while.  So many madcap 
dreams and schemes going through my head.  My trouble is I have Grandiose through my veins, like Brighton through rock!  It is exciting when finally we have found such a lovely place to call home.  As we wander the highways and byways of Ludlow we are like kiddies in a sweetie shop, eyes like gob-stoppers marvelling at the treats in store.
My brain full of colours for walls, floors and how best to make use of the space.  The air now is fragrant making it so much easier to think straight.
The garden is burgeoning with growth, we have bought a grape vine to plant outside and train into the Wrenery.  The rose on the left I have pruned hard, just leaving half to flower outside.  This is where the vine will be planted.  The simple wild rose I intend to leave for the hips in the autumn, which will make a colourful display and feed for the birds who are frequent visitors.  I stopped feeding them inside when sadly a young blackbird came in and not used to the setup came a cropper by flying into the glass ceiling.  I have now started feeding again with the view the older birds will be more Wrenery-wise?  The robins and blackbirds are very tame and are quite happy to come and feed this close to the open door.





Trees and garden birds are what I missed so much at Hythe.  What joy they bring.  The feather duster is called into play many times a day... only to shepherd the bees out when they try to exit through the glass!  Added to which standing on guard in the corner of the room it not only looks funky but has a function as well.  Not my usual style over substance... am I losing my touch I idly wonder?

  1. You could 'decorate' your feather duster? A couple of dangly bits and some colourful tape/paint and bob your uncle would be! Your wrenery looks wonderful and I don't blame you for staying away from the computer to enjoy your new surroundings, it sounds lovely, like being on a long holiday! Enjoy it while you can. Life is short. x

    1. Yes, we are enjoying it... and some. Just deciding whether to wander along the river Teme: all we really, really need is a dog, then we would have the perfect excuse, not that we need one, mind!

  2. I love that wrenery ! I had to laugh at your garden " bludgeoning" into growth...a typo? or computer thinking it knows best?

  3. I could chide you, save I have moved house myself, and setting it to perfect order has seriously dented my blogging--for the present only.

    1. Are you winning Joanne, I hope so. It is all so draining , lovely though when you step back and survey your efforts.
