Summer 2018

Images of a sunny summer starring Lemore Manor and David (giving the doorway arch a good soaking.) Blue sky and sunshine as far as the eye can see, another perfect summer day here.  Mum used to quote ‘Happy the Bride the suns shines on’ meaning a sunny day heralds years of joy to follow, it […]

Spring 2018

It’s a bright spring day today but falls after a long, cold, wet spell. It would be easy to feel that spring is taking its time this year as it’s been too soggy underfoot to do much in the garden and notice all the buds but today after conditioning today’s  flowers I took the camera […]

Late Autumn 2017

Well, we are very late with this blog, things have been steadily busy over the summer and all the other things that life can throw happened too.  Some challenges with our home, a water leak through a ceiling and rising damp in the oldest part of the house.

Late Autumn 2016

It’s November and after a busy summer we are just winding back a little and enjoying the autumn colour. Reds, russets and golds in the garden and the last red apples on our trees all add to the rich colours, just before the winds blow the leaves away completely! During the summer we were packing […]

Summer 2016

Rain, and more rain, the early summer was great for the garden, horrid for Brides and tricky for Bees. But since then we’ve had some glorious sunny and even hot days with acres of blue cloudless sky, just perfect. Long summer days mean balmy evenings for outdoor dancing, which Hannah and Leigh enjoyed after their […]
