one way to spend a lovely weekend

... When we woke up it wasn't raining! We went out to stalk
 ... in the absence of ready birdies a brother makes a useful enough target.

I spent some time sat in the tree as the Great Overseer of all birdies garden-wide

Bingley ~ was a mere baby brother watcher below

Darcy - deputy gardener
.. as Mrs H got gardening underway I kept check on progress
(got to help cos she leaves forks and things in the bags)

Then it did rain.
Mrs H took the most special chalk paint in the world (seriously) ...

... and covered the bright blue bookcase in it (with Country Grey).

On Sunday we stayed at home but Mr and Mrs H went to The Vyne, a National Trust property open extra early, they enjoyed soup and some air. Mrs H says it is such good news that the NT are opening up earlier this year; conservation and work on houses and lands can surely be witnessed and appreciated, ... she says

the wetland Hide (along with willow birds?)

and some real ones (just need binoculars)

and then the most amazing old root - a perfect star on a perfect weekend.


  1. What a wonderful weekend you've all had!

    Ours has not been nearly so interesting or enjoyable, with heavy rain yesterday, then freezing rain overnight and 10 cms of snow this morning. We're napping in-between eating...the mom too. Heh.

    Derry, That's good spot to waiting for the birdy..heh..heh..heh..I don't think they dare to come to eat the food : )

  3. You two playing, I mean helping, in the garden ... so so cute. You both look so floofy.

    The tea looks good.

    Love the tree trunk star.

    I always enjoy reading your blog. Todays was extra special good.

  4. Oh I so enjoyed you boys and your pictures! Been a little while.

  5. Darcy, did you see any birdies when you were up in that tree??

  6. Our mom is sighing. If she could she would love to live in the English countryside. She sometimes thinks she was born on the wrong country. But, if she had been born in England, she would never have adopted us, so we think she was born in the right country hehe
