That's How It Ended

DSC_0562

I get up shower and then cook breakfast. You will notice the strawberry milk shake.

DSC_0567

My car share is not here yet so I take a wonder in the garden. I really should tidy the hose up.

DSC_0568

As always I transfixed by the flowers.

DSC_0570

They are obviously liking the weather.

DSC_0571

We even have some new ones out.

  DSC_0572

So let me show them to you.

DSC_0573

Yeah in fact it’s too nice to go to work.

DSC_0577

So bright.

DSC_0576

So colourfull.

DSC_0579

It’s a delightful place to be.

DSC_0580

Of course the morning sunshine is helping.

DSC_0581

I should have eaten breakfast out here.

DSC_0582

Glorious, that's all I can say.

DSC_0583

And so is the smell still.

DSC_0585

I look around some more.

DSC_0587

I’m still pondering what this is going to turn out to be.

DSC_0590

And the hollyhoax is out in flower too.

DSC_0591

Some pink some white.

DSC_0593

Some pink.

DSC_0596

Some white.

DSC_0599

And the dark red is so well dark red.

DSC_0601

And lovely to see

DSC_0603

yeah right at the moment this is a nice place to be.

DSC_0614

It fills me with joy.

DSC_0616

And the tomato plant is growing some more

DSC_0619

Still a few minutes left.

DSC_0621

Awesome.

DSC_0625

Even this area has taken off now. And off i go to work.

DSC_0627

Some time later I return.

DSC_0631

And believe it or not I get my bike out.

DSC_0632

I go for a longer than usual ride exploring.

IMG_20170801_221530

I head to the west over Shaol Hill Common and then cross the town to an area that I’ve been meaning to check out opposite the railway station.

IMG_20170801_221512

This nature reserve, I swing around the lake several times and take all the side paths checking where they go before finally taking a path next to the railway and heading north.

DSC_0633

I come out and follow my nose to home. Yep I’m now tired and exhausted. I wash the cars and then my parents appear.

IMG_20170801_221434

My dad has been kind enough to follow orders that if a parcel came it was for my Mx5 and needed to promptly. This I will have to fit on Thursday night. That night I’m going to be busy.

DSC_0634

It wasn’t the only thing to come. There was also this. Yeah  I know I’m not a football fan.

DSC_0639

But FIFA 14 was the very last PS2 game released. And it hard to get.

DSC_0643

I’m still going to play it though. I select West Brom to play with.

DSC_0644

And I have a go at playing ball without a ball.

DSC_0650

Its good to a point.

DSC_0653

Well I’m not good at it.

DSC_0654

And that’s how it ended. Well for the PS2’s life.

DSC_0655

And now it was time for my bed.

Flower Power

DSC_0484

I wake up nice and early, and I mean early. I switch the TV in hope of sunday morning garden shop.

DSC_0480

It is way too ealry though for that.

DSC_0483

I get a cup of tea and head back to bed. I take a peak of what the day holds for us outside. Oooo it is sunny.

DSC_0487

At 9am Ricahrd Jacksons Plants and Flowers starts.

DSC_0486

I’m under the duvet, warm and snug and ready.

Screenshot_20170730-090738

I reach for that phone app and get a few of these on preorder.

Screenshot_20170730-095853

And some of these special little bliters.

Screenshot_20170730-095017

And also a 505 bulbs set for latter in the year. Who is going to set all these in the ground?

DSC_0490

I get up and instead of makeing breakfast straight away, I blend up some lemons and limes and make a not so smoothie smoothie.

DSC_0518

I head out to the garden, which following the feeding last night seems to be o so nice.

DSC_0538

I set the table for a slowy breakfast and relax. Afterall having sorted out the garage yesterday I deserve it.

DSC_0537

Yummy yummy.

DSC_0492

And following that I admire my plants and garden.

DSC_0493

Right at this very moment it looks wonderful.

DSC_0494

Real nice, real gorgeous.

DSC_0495

I love nature

DSC_0497

DSC_0498

DSC_0499

And wow these lilys look so,

DSC_0500

Well out of this world.

DSC_0501

And while most are yellow there is the one red one.

DSC_0504

Yep, its all so very unbelievably nice.

DSC_0505

Like a dream garden, I never imagined having myself.

DSC_0502

And so that why I admire it so much now.

DSC_0507

Why I can’t get enough of being in it.

DSC_0510

And today I’m going to relax here in it.

DSC_0511

I decide the lawn needs mowing, obviosuly.

DSC_0513

But for the moemnt I can’t pull my self away from the flowers.

DSC_0514

Its obvouse why, isn’t it.

DSC_0517

Well it is to me.

DSC_0522

There is colour everywhere.

DSC_0523

DSC_0524

all the softness of the world

DSC_0525

Unexplicaticly beautiful.

DSC_0526

I want to touch but know I shouldn’t.

DSC_0528

But the temptation is there all the same.

DSC_0529

So memorizing.

DSC_0530

So capivitating.

DSC_0531

Something to never forget.

DSC_0532

Just simply undignifiedly beautiful.

DSC_0534

And the smell is oh so very very good.

DSC_0535

I want to put my nose right in there.

DSC_0540

And yet here is one of the Lillys that didn’t flower last year. So many buds yet no flowers. Hold on.

DSC_0539

There is a single one!

FB_IMG_1501410030428

And while I drink my lime and lemon juice, I spot the tomatoe plant doing well.

DSC_0541

Once the grass is wowed it looks so neat, along with the colourful borders.

DSC_0543

ah caught in the moment of the camera.

DSC_0542

So I can remember forever.

DSC_0544

In case its never this beuatiful for a moment, just a moment again.

DSC_0548

ahhhhh

DSC_0550

And my few apples are getting slowly larger.

DSC_0551

The nasturshions are growing well, as in well out of control.

DSC_0553

And with that I go into the garage, get the ladders

DSC_0554

And knock a nail into the wall. Then I somehow get that picture up.

DSC_0555

Yeah, thats the place for it.

DSC_0556

It all looks so dam good now. So dam good, but there is still something missing…..
