Yesterday I was busy upstairs, when a quick glance out of the window caught this view of my neighbour's garden. Such a tranquil and inviting seat, I thought.
And it occurred to me that, much as I love my garden and enjoy spending time tending it, its all too rare that I actually sit in it and enjoy it. It's not that I don't have anywhere to sit, because I do.
It being a warm and sunny afternoon, I decided to remedy this and grabbed a little job that I could sit out and do whilst enjoying the fresh air and birdsong.
A little alteration that I've been meaning to do for some time.
Cropping off a pair of old Rohan trousers that my hubby has grown out of and that I've grown into! (That's middle age for you!) They're now perfect for warm summer days, a good fit and very cool and comfy!
A blackbird welcomed me with a wonderful late afternoon warble, as if to say, "why don't you do this more often?" I really think I should.
