Little things to Smile about...



Prunella was overjoyed to see a self seeded Sunflower blooming in the late Summer sunshine.
Some cute little bird must have tossed it off the bird table probably knowing how pleased Prunella would be.
Yellow is such a happy colour...


...so much so that she decided to paint this small nesting box yellow. 
The flower decoration is from a broken can opener...



 Amphibians bring a smile to Prunella's face. 
She has her very own private army of Frogs that patrol her garden searching out the horrid slugs and snails that lurk in her flower beds
This little fellow hopped out of Prunella's fuchsia whilst she was watering her pots.
She lives in hope that one day her Frog Prince will come and sweep her off her little padded feet...



When she tried to kiss this little frog he couldn't jump over the fence quick enough!! 
He does look rather shy...



Prunella has been busy trying to photograph all the different species of Butterfly that have landed on her Buddleja this year.
  Monday she was treated to a visit from a Painted Lady, isn't she beautiful... 










That very same day a Virgin Balloon flew overhead. 
It brought back happy memories of Prunella's very own Virgin Balloon flight.
What fun it had been...




Up, up, up and away!

  


Until the next time, 
stay safe, happy and healthy. 
Hugs to all.

The Last Lazy Days of Summer....




Blue skies overhead, the birds chirping to one another in the bushes and the nearby trees.
Some just basking in the Sun's rays...



Prunella loves to gaze up at the sky to look at the odd aeroplane flying passengers to some exotic destination far far away...



Perhaps one day we'll be flying to the Moon...


On this beautiful sunny day there are still a few flowers blooming in Prunella's garden...


The pink Hibiscus has flowered well. To think that it was grown from a self seeded seedling plucked from the ground a number of years ago...




The insects too are enjoying the warmth of the late Summer's day...



 This delicate Dragonfly decided to take a rest in Prunella's Patch...


A Small Tortoiseshell spread it's wings on the fence after feasting on Prunella's Buddleja...





Prunella is indeed enjoying her last few days of Summer.
She hopes you are too...




Until the next time, 
stay safe, happy and healthy. 
Hugs to all.

The Ploughing Begins...




After a tasty Sunday lunch what could be more relaxing than a stroll on the edge of Potters Down, a small village in Prunella's patch.
The local Farmer was sat in the cab of his tractor busy ploughing his field after the bountiful Harvest.
Prunella sat and watched as the Gulls followed the plough, a quintessentially English autumn scene...









As soon as the earth was turned over the gulls were there almost touching the machinery in order to be the first to spot the wriggly movements of any worms, beetles or grubs.
Wherever Prunella decided to potter, Ed the Red Kite was never far behind.
He'd been circling overhead looking to spot any small mammal that had lost it's cover. It wasn't long before Prunella spied him sat in the field, maybe he'd found himself a nice fat juicy worm to nibble on or perhaps he was scanning for his next snack...



Continuing on her afternoon stroll Prunella passed a small herd of cattle snoozing comfortably in the centre of their huge field. Overhead the skies were darkening and it didn't look very promising. Rain was forecast...


Not much further along the country track Prunella greeted her favourite friends, a flock of sheep.
On one side of the farm track were the youngsters with their soft fluffy woollen fleeces still intact...





Crossing to the other side of the track were the older sheep, they had recently been shorn. Prunella thought they looked very smart with their new haircuts and always found them to be an exceedingly friendly bunch...







 They were sad to see Prunella go and followed her to the very edge of their field...



It was beginning to rain so it was time to head back home. 
As Prunella had a final gaze over her shoulder at the bleating flock she caught sight of Ed sitting on a telephone pole gazing down at Prunella' friends below...


What was he up to she wondered as she now hurried off home. 




Until the next time, 
stay safe, happy and healthy. 
Hugs to all.
