Walking the dog

Even though I live in the middle of a City there are still lots of green places to go for those in the know and I thought I would share with you some photographs I have taken on my mobile phone this morning whilst walking Missy.  I have been out for two hours with her - first half an hour to get to the start of the walk (OH normally drops all of us down in the car) then a good hours run through the fields which run down to the river and then back again.  I did attempt to take some photos of Missy had her in line but soon as I shot the photo she was gone - places to go smells to catch up on she is very fast. But saying that its the first time I have really walked her on her own and she has been absolutely smashing and has come back to me when I have called so I am well pleased with her.  We have been out a good 2 hours.  This post is a little photo heavy.

It is a beautiful crisp morning here but we are now into the season of the long shadows and mist and mellow fruitfulness although there is not much fruit on the bushes this year so there is not going to be much for the wildlife to live off.  I think we are going to all have to do what we can with feeding them in our gardens and taking any excess bread etc down to the rivers to feed the birds.  Lets hope we have a milder winter than we have been having for the sake of the wildlife more than anything else.

Anway here are the pictures I hope you enjoy



And finally home for a cup of tea


Catch you later am now off to start on the Jam Store




  1. Pattypan...I have read in several of your posts about your desire to make quilts (patchwork). I would like to recommend a terrific site with free tutorials for making some wonderfully simple and beautiful Just click on the tutorial icon and there are dozens to choose from. I have been an ardant follower of your wonderful blog for over a year now and I would like to invite you to visit my blog, which deals with country living and quilts:

    1. Thank you Barb, you also have a lovely blog. I am going to look at the tutorials when I get a few minutes to play as I am determined to get to grips with this. I have done some bits but I am not good at measuring or cutting with a rotary cutter, but I intend to persevere.

      Thank you for thinking of me and your kindness

      Take care
