Cotswold colour.

The bungalow is a dusty mess at the moment. Diamond Dave has taken down old ceiling in the lounge and plaster boarded ready for the plasterer to come hopefully this week. He has also installed a light tunnel in the dark corner over the bookcase. It has made a vast difference to the room. Because of the sunroom built on, the light was poor in that far corner especially in the winter.

There has also been a 60 th birthday last week. The children organised a family get together at youngest son’s house. It was a wonderful day topped off by good weather. My gift was a garden bench with a  plaque to remember Steve. I also got an Emma Bridgewater teapot for my collection. The cake design was  to complement the teapot.

It was a real treat to see everyone in one place at last.

We took our first trip out to theNew Forest.
Not far from the coast so we got our vitamin Sea fix by eating lunch overlooking the Needles Isle of Wight.

Diamond Dave is thrilled with his new Oxfordshire flag. Not much wind here.

 These are not happy growing in our region but this one seems much happier in its pot. Earlier this Spring it was very droopy and sorry looking. In the New Forest last weekend we saw many, everyone seemed to have a rhododendron in their garden in various shades. I am off to a garden sale just down the road. It is in aid of the Oxfordshire Air Ambulance charity. I dare say I will be tempted with some plants.  Have a lovely Sunday everyone.
