11th February

It was my turn to get up and feed the horses this morning. Now people who know me will know that I am not an early morning "lark" person, I've always been more of a late-night owl, but getting up at 7.30 to walk up the garden to feed the neddies their breakfast is a huge pleasure. (Mind you, the novelty might wear off!)

This morning there was a double pleasure.

I got up, looked out my bedroom window - and the mist wandering up the valley was absolutely gorgeous! It really was just like the breath of a dragon stalking the valley, or an ethereal magical spell being cast.

Anyway, here's the pictures:

This was the view from my north-facing bedroom window this morning at 7.30 a.m. 
(The silver thing hanging from the "gallows" is a bird feeder)

Looking north-eastward across next door's field
(where we saw a red dear stag a short while ago)
This is the north-facing bedroom window

the south-facing window - you can just see the greenhouse
 with stables behind

Our dining room
Note the wine rack - made from the sections of clay piping that I found in the shed!

  1. Beautiful pictures! Just like I imagine country life to be. Now I want to move to England.

  2. Thank you Ursula - I love it here in Devon!


Thank you for leaving a comment your interest is very much appreciated! It will be published as soon as possible - depending on whether I am at my computer or walking up the lane, or being chased by the goose or helping mend fences after the pony has broken through YET AGAIN.... :-)
