Sat Sitting

I love sitting in the garden when time and weather permits and we have lots of different areas to choose from depending on the time of day.  Early morning is probably favourite at this time of year and so at the weekend I decamp to my little wooden seat with a mug of coffee and my trusty notebook and make notes to help me write posts such as this one.

So, here I sit in the morning sunshine which is scorching as usual, it makes the light very harsh and makes taking pictures difficult.  This is my chair with a comfy blanket and a couple of plump cushions. 

 I have a bit of company too of course, where there is a sunbeam there is usually a canine snoring gently.

And this is the view as I am sat sitting.  Everything is looking so lush and green despite having had no rain for 6 weeks or so, except for a cupful one night last week!  Pity about the washing line!  It's strange what you don't see through the lense when you take a photgraph isn't it?

 It is beautiful this morning, the rooks are making their usual early morning racket and the doves have had their breakfast and are cooing and preening their feathers and getting ready for the business of the day. 

A plane passes overhead on it's way to some exotic destination, it glints silver in a wedgewood blue sky, a frothy trail tailing behind.  With the bees buzzing and gossamer spiders thread invisible until caught in the sunlight and the sweet scent of roses, it all takes some beating here in blighty on a day like today.

Did you spot the Baby Bunting?  Super cute and made from the leftovers of Big Bunting which isn't quite finished yet as I have decided that I would like to embellish it with some glass beads (which I haven't bought yet).  Here's a taster for you to swoon over...go on you know you want to, it is such an easy pattern to follow, (it has to be for me to be able to make it)!

This is Baby Bunting...............

This is Big Bunting, minus beads....................

My bargain of the week was this fab bag which is perfect for all my hooky projects.  You can never have too many project bags in my opinion.  It matches my Mme Gregoire rose perfectly!

I am off to make some cherry brooches now, pictures to follow another time.

Do any of you have a special seating area if so share the pictures with us.  In the meantime, have a lovely, lovely week.  Mr Fairy has built a greenhouse and there are henny things afoot.  I will tell you more next time.

p.s.  I have lost all my followers, at least I hope they are lost and not crossed me off their favourites.  Any ideas how that has happened and if anything can be done to sort it out?

your garden is soooo enchanting, we've had rain but not much- just drizzle every now and then...seems very humid, mainly sunny~ cornwall was quite wet, think they've had more rain.
love your sunbeam- how sweet ;0)x
lovely images of cozy comforts x

Such a beautiful garden and a lovely peaceful place to sit and think about the day ahead. We have had a fair amount of rain this afternoon in the Cotswolds but cant complain as the gardens are so dry. Plus a perfect opportunity to sit in and have a bit of crochet time. Melanie x

What a pretty garden you have and what a perfect place to sit.

The bunting is lovely - I'd like to do something like this for my little girls room one day.

Have a lovely week !!!! Leah x

What a pretty garden and what a lovely companion you have. I have just discovered your blog and there is lots of prettiness to behold. I especially love your fairies. x

I am trying to see if I can comment on yours. Thanks for the message, I hope I get the problem solved soon. I am loving everything on this post all over again.

I think your crochet is far more advanced than mine! I love your bunting, but am still struggling with my first attempt at a pattern!

I love sitting out in the garden too, and have 2 special spots. I'll have to take some photos.

Dear Devina,

What a lovely spot! I wish I had one as sweet to dream in in the morning, but my bed is the closest thing that I have. :)

I also wish we could send you some of our rain! We're used to getting about 3 inches a year, and now we live where it's over 30!

Your new bag is delightful, as are the buntings, and pooch.
