Such a beautiful day here after yesterday’s storm. Blue sky, sunshine and just a murmur of wind.
It’s Sunday so after a quick sprint in the gym I’m having a relaxing day. Paul has his chef hat on today and is cooking paella for dinner tonight. We’ve just a gin martini each because I decreed that 11.00 a.m. was cocktail hour . Rick had a gravy bone biscuit so he wasn't left out.
I’ve just spotted the first dwarf iris in bloom among the Nemesia (that has continued to flower all winter), a nice sign that Spring is not far away.
That sounds very civilised, cocktail hour.ReplyDelete
Innit just! What's your favourite cocktail Rachel?Delete
Ooh yes, good choice.Delete
It was a lovely morning here in the Dales too but now it is clouding over and the wind is gettig up again.ReplyDelete
Same here, it's clouded over this afternoon but not too windy.Delete
Spring seems so far away but your iris knows better. My iris are under 30 inches of snow this morning. Blue sky, sunshine and no wind makes for a lovely day. Cocktail hour sounds good to me.ReplyDelete
It seems very early to me for the iris to be out.Delete
I love the idea of cocktail hour. The iris is very pretty and very early.ReplyDelete
Paul didn't need too much persuading.Delete
Really envy your garden blooms. We're still under two feet of snow and not likely to see anything blooming for at least another two months.ReplyDelete
February may well bring us some snow.Delete
Decreed? I thought that was only something Caesar Augustus did in The Bible!ReplyDelete
Did he like cocktails too?Delete
I believe he was partial to a Slippery Nipple.Delete
Wow! Cocktail hour - every day?ReplyDelete
There are quite a few days when we don't!Delete
