LOOKING TO HEAVEN

Here is one of the 'apples of my eye'.

Rosa, looking to Heaven, as if she has just heard her Nanna Maria calling to her to tell her how much she loves her ~ just as much as "Bampa" does.


She is a little angel isn't she and Maria will certainly be Rosa's and Peter's guardian angel.

I think Maria sprinkled stardust on her, just like she did with Peter. I am so lucky to have them and to be involved in their little lives so much and so closely.

Next month will be the 4th anniversary of Maria's passing.  Those four years have gone by so quickly.  It is rather strange but today young Peter was asking about his Nanna Maria . . . :)

TUESDAY AT "BAMPA'S"

"Bampa!!" there are loads of weeds in your garden. Nanna Sue is working wonders restoring your border, surrounding your magnolia tree. Good job you cut the lawn this morning."

Thank you ladies ~ you are so kind, and I think Rosa may well become green fingered, just like her Nanna and Mummy,


As for me, I am a little side tracked of late, with a big project I am designing and building ~ a pentagonal tree bench, which will fit round a 200 year old tree, situated in a beautiful garden Sue and I look after on Wednesdays. 


On going work continues and it is all coming together, albeit rather slowly, as the project evolves.


Good, it fits around the tree ok . . . so I can take it back home to finish it . . . 



. . . and here is my other helper, Peter, who loves to get involved with woodwork projects.

It should look good in the grounds and it will be somewhere for us to sit to have our coffee.


I built some steps for it and not long ago this whole site at that end of the garden was a compost heap and the tree was covered with climbing Ivy and it was a bit of an eye sore.



I'll keep you posted about the progress, and the way I built it all.

Meanwhile I am afraid I am neglecting weeding in my own garden ~ I must balance out my time better, so I fully accept rapped knuckles now and then.
