Have a Happy Easter weekend

Vintage rabbit jewellery - chattering animal brooch!

Time just flies lately. Can not believe that it's over a week since my last blog. It does not help to have a spring cold that put me in bed for a couple of days and slow recovery. Unfortunately with this MS lark, any simple virus knocks the stuffing out of you.

It has been wonderful weather for Easter, sunny and warm. I can not remember when I have had to water the garden pots so early because they have dried out. The cherry tree is spreading its blossom all over the garden - maybe we will have another bumper years of fruit. The apple trees are also heavily laden with blossom, which means we will have a good apple year I hope. Haven't even looked at the grapevine to see if it survived yet!! Its been in now about 2 years and last year had a very small bunch of grapes. Was hoping for a better year but the number of plants and trees that we have lost is unbelievable.

Our fish, however, are being terrorized by the heron. Although they are securely netted, the constant stalking around the pond in the early hours does not help. So they have stayed at the bottom of the pond only venturing up later in the day and then so nervous!!

No, our fish are not this colourful. Mostly gold, white and very large black ones.
So this Easter weekend we will be mostly in the garden trying to make it look a bit nicer. So whatever you are doing have a good one. Happy Easter.
