Easter Sunday and Lady Jane Tea Rooms

Their are three things in my life that I love (apart from my family who I love more than anything!)

They are in order Knitting, photography and gardening, oh and flowers. Ok four things!!  So for people that follow or take time out to read my blog will know it is a culmination of all four things.  Today's is however mainly just two photography and gardening.

Today is Easter Sunday which is great on many levels.  (A) easter eggs = chocolate, (B) a visit from the folks yesturday which was a lovely day and finally (C) I treated the wife who is thankfully getting well on the way to being on the mend to a meal at our favourite Tea Rooms "Lady Jane" in beautiful Winchcombe.

Looking back at my blog it was 20 June 2010 that we took a mad trip via our bikes over to this lovely town and I did a more comprehensive blog.  cycle-lunch-knitting-what-beautiful-day.

This morning I decided to have a look around the garden and photograph it as the flowers are now starting to come into their own and to keep a record of it's progress throughout it's gardening year, so here is a record of that.


This was a beautiful easter pot/flowers from the folks

Some Lavender cutters

My honeysuckle

The grape vine

The Willow Tree

Pyracantha bush

The last Tulips






















We have decided this year to having a go at growing more veg so this is the patio veg patch so far.



We have some Broad Beans, Beetroot and Lettuce growing.  But as yet to do anything are Carrots, Parsnips, Onions and dad planted some potatoes for us yesturday too.

Now for easter....


This amazingly large Creme Egg admittedly I do have to share with Harry :( but the lovely hand made felt bag filled (well going down fast) mini eggs I don't and the lovely hand made card by Penny's very talented mother.

For lunch today was our treat the lovely Lady Jane Tea rooms as I mentioned so here is a taste of what everyone who is in the area should go and visit.

It is run by the most lovely couple Niki and Kevin.





















We had Sunday lunch of Roast Lamb but in my hunger I forgot to photograph it opps.

But never fear after a lovely walk around Winchcombe we went back and we had a cream tea in the gorgeous garden.


















So I do hope you have enjoyed a little dip into my Easter Sunday and that you have had an equally lovely day.

Until next time...

The break is over.

Looking back on my blog my last entry was October, so a long break of 6 months!

A dear friend suggested I get back into blogging. I was unsure as I am a private person and wondered whether too.

So over the past week I have been going through the reading list of people I follow and really enjoy the ability to read and view image's.

I started this blog as a type of diary to be able to look back. I am definately not they tyle of person to do a "visual" blog and admire people who can sit in front of a camera and do that and I do so love to watch. So from the safety net of words and picture's I will share my love of photography, which is all done on my phone. My passion for knitting, my garden and what ever else I want to record for "safe keeping ".

So if you have a spare bit of time please do enjoy with me and let me know what you think.

I'm kicking off the blog with some of the trips I have had.

My first trip out was in Decmeber to my special place Slimbri…

Trip to Tewkesbury

This morning I woke to this poignant message having being sent to me by a good friend. I was unsure what to do with my day as I had no plans and the weather was set to be nice. 
So I decided to heed the advice and set off to Tewkesbury. 
On Friday I had treated myself to a nice new pair of walking shoes so this would be a great first outing for them.

Not even five minutes into my walk I spotted this beautiful Bluebells.

My first stop was a place called Lower Lode, Tewkesbury  you come down to the River Severn and the viewing point looks over to the 13th Century B&B/pup/campsite which was very popular today.

I decided to sit and people watch and listen to the bird's singing for 5 minutes whilst knitting a little of my new sock.

I then headed back the same way and walked across the park with the majestic Tewkesbury Abbey as the backdrop .

Here I sat for a little longer and listened to the bell ringing and watched as a coach load of visitors from Nottingham came to look around t…

Road to happiness photo session.

I live in the cotswold town of Cheltenham.  It is a very multi cultural town with some great area's for photography.

Today I decided to cycle along a route called the Honeybourne line which is an old disused railway line.

In 2017 #cheltenhampaintfestival create an amazing event that meant many area's were painted by incredible street artists.

One of who was done by Vanesa Long Champ an incredible artist based in London who has travelled widely.

Inspired hughly by Laine magazine I took photographs of my newly completed garment which I have called Road to Happiness.  One is a short sleeve top and the other is a love sleeve jumper. 

The garment is a boxy style comprising of lace, cables and moss stitch. I love the garment so much I will be making another and am going to design socks, cowl and wrap to complete the design idea's. 

Please do enjoy the picture's .
