Staying With Hilary

Last Wednesday I had an unexpected day in hospital.  Due to a dosage rise in one of my tablets, I ended up having to have Potassium intravenously.

Hilary kindly said she'd have my girls.  She even dropped me off and picked me up from the hospital, as it's a nightmare finding somewhere to park.


Here's Polly enjoying Hilary's garden.  At least she had the sense to get into the shade.




This is Hilary's big lad Milo, with Honey laying touching his bum.

Usually it's Polly by Milo, as she adores him.



The day was stressful, but at least I knew my girls were in good hands.



Hope you have a lovely day. 

 Don't forget to hug your hound/s.

On my desk today I have the gubbins for 4 new cards and one card already finished, apart from needing the sentiment on the front and an insert.




Still needs a sentiment on the front and an insert.

Photos Of The Gang

Last time at the farm field whilst I took videos of the dogs, Hilary took photos.




Flora and Polly, with Honey in the distance.  Don't know what they had all seen.



Something caught their attention.



Sofia after a treat.

The Gang At The Field 11th August, 2016

It was raining hard when I left home to meet up with Hilary and the three dogs at the farm.  It was more an annoying drizzle when we got there and shortly after it stopped raining completely.  I was glad I had my boots on, as the field was very wet.

It started to spit with rain as we were catching up the dogs and putting their leads on, so our hour was up at the right time. 

Took Polly for the first time to the field.  She did one zoomie, slipped and then decided that was enough.  She just mooched about mainly near the gate.

Honey, Hilary's Milo, Flora and her Pointer Sofia all had a few runs and a really good sniff about.







Hope you enjoyed the fun.

WOYWW 10th August, 2016

Here is my WOYWW (What's On Your Workbench Wednesday).  If you want to know more about this weekly event, take a look at Julia's blog http://stamping-ground.blogspot.co.uk




Today on my desk I have the finished card that I showed the gubbins of last WOYWW.




I may change it, as I don't think the pennant under the sentiment is the right scale.

Happy WOYWW.

Open Garden For Charity

Today I went with my friend Hilary to an open garden.  They were raising money for various charities.

The beautiful cottage, which was The Rectory, is situated by the side of the village church and is surrounded by mature trees.



When the present owners bought the cottage 12 years ago, they uncovered this owl under years of foliage.  All they know if is came from Kings Lynn, Norfolk and was called Mabel.



The various flower beds are full of established plants and a riot of colour from not only the flowers, but also by the colour of the stems and leaves of the various plants and shrubs.



A Dahlia.




This intriguing wall was on one side of the cottage.  It appears to have the emblems of England - The Tudor Rose, Wales - The Leek, Scotland - The Thistle and Ireland - The Shamrock.






You can just make out a few Doves and Pigeons looking out of the Dovecote.






This Bantam had three little chicks, but they are too well camouflaged by the gravel path.

The pond had some very large fish in it.




A photo from inside the little church which dates to the 13th Century.

In the 18th century two members of the Nelson family were rectors, Edmund Nelson, Lord Nelson's Father's 1st cousin and namesake, who were at Cambridge together, and Nelson's 2nd cousin James Rose Edmund Nelson.



Hope you enjoyed the photos.
