Warmth in Winter

ShareMondays2020 – Winter Warmer

Finding myself vitamin D deficient once again I am trying to get out into the sunshine as much as possible! I spent an afternoon at Bushy Park last week, soaking up those precious rays and watching the wildlife. It was so mild I ended up shedding my big winter coat. It was fun watching the deer and wrens in the bracken near Heron Pond, before heading over to the Woodland Gardens for sunset and a cuppa at the cafe.

The Chase

Signs of an early Spring were very evident in the Woodland Gardens! Watching the parakeets feasting on cherry blossom is a sight I don’t usually see for another two months! Just as the sun was setting at around half four, I came across one of the resident rabbits. I was really surprised to see one out of the warren at this time of day and year! The rabbits here are more used to people walking by and I was able to get really close to it, capturing the details of the fur and even a reflection of the sunset in the rabbit’s eye. The leaf litter in the background glowed in the late light and this little rabbit just stole my heart!

It was warm and peaceful at RHS Wisley Gardens today. Only time can heal the heartbreak of loosing our precious Pixel but the simple pleasures of nature and beauty did put some warmth back into my heart.

Thank you, all, for your kind thoughts and messages. Simon and I really appreciate them.

Freshly Warmed

Freshly Warmed

You know that thing that cats do when they steal your seat the moment you move for “the warm spot”?

Pixel knows a good opportunity when he sees one!

Never mind the fact that Simon was trying to do the ironing!

As far as Pixel was concerned the board had obviously been warmed entirely for his benefit.

Why else would you bother with ironing?
