It was so wonderful this week, to just be able to pop outside and feel some warmth in the sun. 
 Filling the house with fresh air as doors and windows could be flung open and
being able to peg out washing, knowing it would be dry later in the day.

I spent Tuesday in my garden, washing out my little greenhouse and making new neat borders, weeding and digging until dusk. I didn't do much in the garden last year but this year I'm going to make much more of an effort.

Then on Thursday I met a friend at RHS Hyde Hall for lunch, it was lovely up there and we couldn't believe it was warm enough to eat outside. 
Although we were restricted to the path areas we were still able to have a good stroll around and I took a few photos to share with you.

The scarecrows were there ready to wish us a fond farewell as we were leaving!

Yesterday saw me out in the garden again, this time planting up seeds and sorting our small front garden. Neighbours passing by, stopped and chatted. It was a relaxing pottering day.
Knitting has certainly taken a back stop this week but as the saying goes, a change is as good as a rest!


  1. It is such a wonderful moment when you can open the doors and windows and let in some fresh spring air. Better yet is getting to hang clothes on the line! It sounds like you had a great week! :-)

  2. Yes, it's so good to be out in the fresh air, isn't it? I've enjoyed pottering in the garden too. Lovely photos of your day out. x

  3. Isn't it so wonderful to see the sun!

    Sounds like you're being very industrious ... no doubt you'll be treating us to lovely pictures of your own garden come the summer :)
