Irish weather is always a hot topic (excuse the pun) but when one day you wake up to a dark sky and thundering cold wind. The next day it is beaming sunshine and heat. It is no wonder Irish people are so besotted with the weather.
However I am discovering that there is another hot topic in our house – strange things that pop up in the garden.
See for yourself. I look forward to the many varied comments that will follow the pictures below.
I was weeding and discovered this gorgeous plant, weed??
Then this odd looking object. I wonder who or what planted it?
Our Boss Bob started off on his ramble with us but after struggling across the first pile of branches he turned for home. He kept an eye on the fire while we went walk about to find some photographs. You can spot a certain collie wandering in and out of shot as she had fun checking out these new obstacles.
I am really chuffed when I get a good review for my children’s book but the ones that surprise and delight me most are those that are given by seven and nine year olds, and lately twelve year old blogger Olivia along with her brother Oscar (nine) added their review to the list. Thank you to Sean and Amy and Luke who also reviewed the book for me. Their reviews can be found on Amazon
Bob, of course doesn’t listen or look for reviews, simply attention or hugs. This morning to my surprise he was listening to bird song.
Bob was missing at walk time early this morning. So we started searching his usual hideouts. However when, the kitchen, the hall and his favourite blanket beside the doors to the garden revealed nothing, we widened the search.
At last I found him, but his look had me wondering was today Monday or Tuesday.
Unfortunately snow is not looking likely, yet again, here in Ireland but as it is usually a one or two day mushy affair, we are perhaps better off without it. However, these photos will explain the title of the blog post.
No surprise in the first one. Bob asleep…again.
Even Ellie could not waken him.
She considered joining him but only for a minute.
But she did find one or two interesting things beneath the tree, did you spot them?
It left her feeling a little puzzled or is it just that intent border collie look, begging for someone anyone to play with her? You can decide while we grab a racket and a ball.
Happy Christmas everyone and a great, 2017 to all.
