a suitably shabby seat


Well, you all said I should do this more often


and who am I to ignore friendly advice?
 

So I found myself a suitably shabby seat
for early morning reflection. . .


and got a suitably stung bum in return!!


P.S. . .my favourite tree of all, the magnificent Chestnut
is already full of flowering candlesticks


while some of the smaller trees are only just starting to
find their leaves. . .

You could have picked them first for nettle tea! But I would have just sat on them too.
Have a great Easter break.

A suitably monogrammed cushion for "resting" moments is required I think. That or a knitted botty shield!

Have a lovely Easter.

If you're going to become a lady of leisure, you'll need someone to look after your needs - like de-weeding the bench before you sit awhile to ponder......

Hope that stunningly peaceful view made the tingling tuch subside!

This is the most perfect time of the year in my opinion. I love the colours of the leaves, so fresh and green. The bird song is wonderful and everything is beginning to burst.
I hope I appreciate it all as it is all over so quickly.
Already the daffs are gone and the magnolia has nearly finished.
I love the shape of the chestnut tree.
Have a lovely Easter

Hi there. Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving your lovely comment. I am one of those individuals that salvages everything from the charity shop box. You would laugh if you saw the amount of stuff I have managed to haul across the pond as hand luggage!! Looking forward to following your lovely blog! Have a happy Easter break and enjoy the lovely weather you are experiencing there at the moment. Lx

Ouch, you needed to find a dock leaf, hide behind the lovely cheshnut tree and treat your sore spots..

Annie said...

That looks painful ! The chestnut tree is magnificent though. Hope you are having a lovely Easter weekend .
