What a difference a week makes!

Last Sunday it was wet!!! Nothing to do but stay inside. Today it is the most beautiful day, just look at the cows behind my house enjoying the sun!. After getting the things I had to do done I went out and finally pruned the roses and pulled some weeds in the gardens. I feel so much better now I have finally tended to the poor neglected Roses. I think they were left last year, maybe a little deadwood cut out of them but no pruning. The washing dried on the clothes line which is wonderful. No Clothes Airers all over the house tonight. It's amazing how much better I feel after a few hours of Sunshine!!!
I took photos a week ago on the progress next to work. Lots done and lots more to do.
A week later this is what it looks like. The metal frame you can see to one side of the photo is the tower. The huge crash we heard yesterday morning at work was the Tower finally falling.
The only good thing about lousy weather is I don't mind being inside which means. I get lots of sewing done. The August Edition of The Chocolate Crow trader will be out on the 15th. Here's just a hint of the three items I will have on my page.

It is amazing what a little sunshine can do to lift the spirits. Our yard is a swamp from the rain, though I love winter, but as it comes to an end I get so excited & long for those cheery spring days...not long now..

All jokes aside... I am glad that you were able to enoy a bit of sunshine...I know you've had it pretty cold and foggy down in them-thar-woods! xxx

Thanks for visiting by blog, & how lucky are you to have the view that you have, the country is a beautiful place isn't it. I cant wait to set up my shed/work room & enjoy the view of the clothes drying on the line, ha ha.
