Out of sync!

My Autumn flowering pond lily has sent up a new flower. There are also some new green leaves floating - like the rest of us - it seems to be a bit out of sync.

The sun is shining brightly today although one or two light showers are predicted with more rain and cold weather for the weekend.

We are waiting for a parcel to be delivered. If it arrives early enough, we will go pick up much needed items.

Anyone taking bets yet on how mad next week will be? 

We hope to start our walking again but with the Easter school holidays happening, hope it won't be over busy where we plan to go. Normally, we would go further afield to somewhere we know won't be busy but aim to remain relatively local. We are both in agreement that we will not be in any hurry to ditch our masks or stop washing our hands.

My radishes have good first stage seed leaves showing and I hope it won't be too long before their true leaves appear. Obviously, being under cover has helped a lot. No sign yet though of the beetroot or lettuce.

The winter heathers are still in full bloom, covered in bees. Once they start to turn, I must remember to clip them back and feed the soil.

Touch wood, Ruby seems to have settled on her new food. It took a week before she was better toilet wise. She has lost a kilogram so we hope that will go back on soon. Guess she is just going to be one of those dogs with weird digestive problems which this food is supposed to help.

Her worming treatment failed. First off, she wouldn't take her usual stuff, then she had a bad reaction to a chewable alternative. We are going to try her old medicine but in a different form, disguised in a hand formed mince meatball. Hopefully that will be okay. Other than that, she is her usual cheerful self. This is her after we threw all these toys and she retrieved them:

I have started watching Max out in the Lake District, link here.

If you enjoy watching dogs, Springer Spaniels in particular, plus fantastic scenery, you will enjoy this. Kerry has a particularly soothing voice, the scenery is beautiful and the dogs often make me laugh out loud.

  3. I have been watching Max and family for a little while, OH and I love the Lake District and dogs! I can no longer do the big walks and fell climbs, but Kerry has given us lots of ideas for easier walks. I bought the book too and just finished reading it.
    So pleased that poor Ruby is much better

    1. Fingers crossed for easier walks. We should have been going there last year, then this year, sigh! Next year hopefully.

  4. I think I'm out of sync too. The weather may curb some of the initial bids for freedom next week but I guess we have to test the water to see whats going to happen.....next!

  5. Nice to read that Ruby is back to herself.

    We have been told that we should continue to wear masks and wash hands for awhile after we get our shots. Even after the second shot.

    God bless.

    1. I think we shall do so for a long while yet. Our government might insist on it for a while.
