Bee happy .... get digging

Mr Happy has been digging in the garden and he brought back in with him some of our home grown potatoes.

They were given to us earlier in the year from our lovely cousin when we were visiting them.

They have been tested and they are gorgeous :)

I also had a lovely surprise the other evening. We had popped out for half an hour and when we returned someone had left a big bunch of hydrangeas on the doorstep.

They were from a friend who had left them for me.

I had looked after her little dog Alfie while they were out and in return she gave me these.

 I love these flowers, they are my favourite along with roses.

  22. I love big hydrangeas!! And the colors are so beautiful. I bet you enjoyed them everyday. Such a sweet friend to be thankful for what you did for them. Some people tend to move on too quickly when they return and forget the good deed that was done. Even though you might not expect anything in return, it's nice when a friendly gesture is noted.
    Those potatoes look yummy!

  23. Wow, your potatoes look fantastic! I would love to grow my own veggies. Your hydrangeas looks beautiful too; they are also my favourites ;) xx
