How lovely to see some spring colour outside my front door.

A Peace rose is in bud too but the Abutilon has quietly flowered all winter & on my way to the mailbox this morning, I also noticed some primroses in flower.

There’s so much mud on the road it really makes living in the country a challenge.

The winter has been so grey & wet it has allowed me to get on with indoor work. I’ve spent the week painting my cloakroom, [it has gone from a shabby chic, chalky Tuscan terracotta style finish, to stark white] but work outside which must be done before spring gets underway , is piling up.

I’ve used my new oven & after working so hard I’ve rewarded myself with the baking of a dark coffee & Walnut cake

House Bound ! Friday, Jul 6 2012 

Rain stopped play……for most of the day,with a flash or two of lightning & few claps of thunder ! My satellite picture is more off than on.
I’m keeping my fingers crossed the last half of the Murray match can be seen.
