Spring in our garden

The arrival of spring in our garden.

Ladybirds and a caterpillar,



tree surgery,

planting (we also planted potatoes, sunflowers and wildflowers),


working and playing,

a new friend ("there's a beautiful girl in the garden!"),

a new mug,

and a new outdoor play kitchen. There will be a post about Sunnyboy's new kitchen soon but here's a preview.

Where I live and self-portrait

Corner View was created by Jane at Spain Daily and is hosted by Francesca at FuoriBorgo. We are invited to post pictures telling the stories of our different lives and cultures. This week's themes are 'where I live' and 'self-portrait'.

Last week Sunnyboy stayed with Nozy one afternoon and I went into town without him for the first time. While I was in town I took these photographs of 'where I live' (and some flowers).

The 'self-portrait' I've chosen was taken last year on a sunny October day with Sunnyboy.
