Prunella's First Blog for 2017...

Prunella would like to wish all of her dear readers a very Happy New Year.
May you and your family and friends be blessed with boundless energy and good health.

Here in the UK we have had some very cold starts to our mornings...

...but this morning brought a broad smile to Prunella's face and her little eyes lit up with joy.
She was greeted by a beautiful blue sky. 
Even the clouds were uplifting...

Enjoying her breakfast she was joined by Ed the redkite. He was perched high above in the neighbour's conifer tree devouring his very own breakfast...

On mornings like these Prunella likes to jump for joy and is now eagerly awaiting her first 2017 garden snowdrop. It wont be long!

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


Thank you kindly for your visit and we dearly appreciate your comments. 
We hope you had as much fun reading Prunella's Blog as we had writing it.
Happy Blogging!

  4. Happy New year Prunella. I look forward to reading of all your adventures in 2017.
    The frost on the 'mailbox?' is just awesome.

    1. Thank you Helen. It's a blue tit fence post finial.
      They come from amazon in a few different bird shapes. Expensive but they look cheerful :)

  5. I'm so glad to see Prunella so very happy ... be sure, darling, before than Winter ends you'll have your garden under a snowy blanket ... I wonder what outstanding shots !

    Hope your week is off to a good start,
    I'm sending blessings of joy on your coming days,
    be a sweetie !

  6. It's almost amazing how happy a blue sky and brilliant white clouds can make us, not to mention the sunrays... especially in winter they are really precious.
    Wonderful bird photos! Happy new year and big hugs! xx

  7. beautiful captures. i have never seen a red kite until now, they are magnificent!! i was drawn to image #1.

  8. It's good to know Prunella is full of energy and expecting good things to see and do this new year! xx

  9. Now I'm very jealous Prunella. You don't have to leave your own garden to see a Red Kite! How marvellous. I hope we don't get the snow that's forcast for Thursday but if we do you will have to get busy with that real camera Prunella.

  10. Beautiful photos !! Happy New Year to you, too dear Friend !!

  11. Happy new year for you and you're family.
    You make great shots from Ed the Redkite - beautiful bird!
    Greetings from Germany (today is rainy, but last weekend we had ice-rain many accidents :( happend)

  12. Ah, what a glorious blue sky! And the frosty bird put a smile on my face. Frost makes things so whimsical and lovely, don't you think?

    It's always so nice to visit you, dear Prunella. Love and hugs!

  13. Happy New Year Wishes to you too!
    Lovely photographs here ... and hopefully some photographs of your lovely garden snowdrops to follow in the next few weeks...

    In the meantime with the UK expecting an Arctic blast stay warm, stay safe.

    All the best Jan

  14. Greeting from Wendy and all the Florida dollies! Hope you can stay inside where it's warm and snug! What a frosty bird! Maybe you can bring him in too...heehee! Hugs, Diane

  15. Hello Prunella and thank you for your kind comments!
    A family member is studying in London and may need glasses. I hope he will find a good doctor, because as you say eyes are very precious.
    Big hugs! Have a happy weekend! xx

  16. Happy 2017! Hope the beginning of the year is treating you well!

  17. I'm a bit behind with my blog reading, it's been a busy start to the year, but I hope that Prunella is enjoying 2017 so far and has many adventures planned.

  18. Impressed with your style of writing! lovely pics!
