Views from My Land

I just about made it to Jane's Views from my Window before dark! This is 5.15pm in Northern Ireland and the moon is out. I love our big sky. I'm under this part of its blanket; you're under another.
Dusk impedes a good view of the emerging apple blossom. As for me and my household, we have decided that Spring is here. Despite the very cold temperatures today.
Yes, this is what the back garden looks like when it is tidy. Minus the reflection of the kettle, the cheese grater, Jo and the broccoli...
We had our first house viewers today, with our second on Saturday morning. So two days of gardening and cleaning will have to be maintained. Poor strawberries!

Oh those awful viewings! Hope you find a buyer soon and dont have to spend too much time tidying.

I love the ethereal kettle in the garden - envisaging you and myself standing out there with mugs of hot chocolate putting the world to rights [not sure about the broccoli though!]

G'day Mags. Your garden looks lovely. Good luck with perspective buyers. Take care. Liz...

I looked up and the moon and thought of you under the same moon too!
If Ang doesn't want the broccoli...I'll take it!

The moon at five. I like that!
The Willows are here! I am not taking them out of their package until I make Badger, so they are waiting and I'm waiting and you're waiting.
But, they are HOME safe!
Stay tuned.

A smiley house and garden waiting for a new family to love it, I think it will be very hard when we move to keep tidy for viewers, the best time to view our messy garden is probably when it's covered in snow!

I love the moon and often think of people far off when I'm looking at it. I'll think of you too.
