Rainy Days


A weekend to myself! I had plans - lots of plans - on Friday I went to the flower stall in the market and bought home loads of cottage garden flowers - wallflowers, stocks, violas - my plan was to spend Saturday weeding the area around our front porch (as you can see it needs it!) and then plant up tubs and pots with all my new flowers - it was all to look 'cottage garden chic' - is there such a thing? well there is now!!

So I awoke, ready to start, early Saturday morning - the sun was shining and ...... by the time I had made some toast, checked my emails, read the papers, washed up last nights dinner plates (I was by myself - I could be a slob and leave them in the sink!) and had a second cup of coffee ...... I opened the door and ........ oh no it's raining!!!!!!!  And not just a passing shower - it was a full on down pour with no sign of stopping ...... did it not know I had plans ........


I closed the door, checked the forecast - rain all day after a dry spell early morning - which I missed!

So a change of plans - Blanket on the window seat, a pile of cookery books, biscuits, tea and watch the garden in the rain ......


And with the window cracked open I could hear the lambs in the field, a few brave birds singing and smell the rain scented spring air. So all in all not a bad day in the end....


And on Sunday the sun came out......



Have a lovely start to your working week
