walking my dogs the dragonfly and Mr Ben....


My dogs are not morning dogs!!It reflects on lazy old me who has to warm up in the mornings. Coffee first...Checking whats happened in the world via my PC   then more coffee.As my doggies snooze away  bean in his igloo and mu on the daybed.






Sometimes bean sits on my desk as i type!




and nods off!!!' Mu mus new trick is to jump on my desk next to him...that's when i give up and get ready!!



THEN ITS WALKIES!



Ben my grandchildren s dog is on his holidays .....


My lovely friend Jackie came to help walk him....





The lake was  beautiful and i spent some time chasing this beautiful thing around trying to get a picture of it!











The park was amazing  as usual and bustling with people . children playing and dogs of all shapes and sizes....





We stopped for a cuppa and cake at the cafe....


Mu mu posing!!



Bean had to be in on  the act ....


Then back on our way...



No Ben your not taking it home !!!!





Back home and settling down for a snooze while i get their teas ready!!Thanks Jackie for your help !!x

HOW DOES YOUR GARDEN GROW!!!!




Well not a garden a tiny back yard!!not like an American backyard  a UK back yard made of concrete and surrounded with high brick walls  our house was built in 1900. A typical terraced house of the time with back yard. Hence everything is planted in containers!!!  Id love a big garden so i could grow loads of stuff and have chickens  but i have to be content with what i have plus my dogs!!







Isn't nature wonderful...my cucumber plant coiled around  a big fat knitting needle!!!!!



This blue bottle must have loved the camera!!!!couldn't get rid of it!





 I have a huge container of mint and always grow lemon balm....


My tomato's are sprouting all over the place...and celery grew from an stump left after id used it in cooking ..i was amazed at how quick it re sprouted!!!!





My tomato's   lemon balm and rambling rose all living together !!
Ive had loads of beans and kale ...not bad for a tiny uk backyard x
