Whisper it quietly ......




Hallo again everyone!  Yes, whisper it very quietly, but we are in the final week of January.  Yay, I’m doing a happy dance here in deepest Devon.  So on Friday, we will be entering the month of February, and already the mornings and evenings are starting to get a tad lighter.  Primroses are in the garden, and lots of bulbs are peeping through already. My winter flowering pansies are still putting on a good show, but we have been pretty fortunate, in that we have only had a couple of frosty mornings so far.  I have a yellow camellia with around 40 buds on it, so I’m really hoping that we don’t suddenly get a hard frost.  Daffodils are now on sale in the shops, which I always think are a real sign of the Spring yet to come.  This photo was taken last year.  It really is like having a little bowl of sunshine in the house.




I realise that there could  well be people reading this, whose Season might be completely the reverse of what we have over here in England.  It’s a funny old world, isn’t it?!  Even here in the UK, the weather can vary tremendously.  I live right down in the South West of England, next to Cornwall, and Devon and Cornwall are amongst the mildest Counties in the Country.  Our flowers are always a few weeks ahead of everyone else.  



Oh! My life has changed somewhat since I last wrote a Blog Post.  I have a little puppy, and he is the cutest little thing.  I have only had him for six days, but he has settled in so well, and is such a good little pup.  This is a completely new experience for me - I was avidly reading a puppy handbook before he arrived, but, really, SO FAR (!), it has been much better than I could have hoped for.  He is a Cavapoo, and a cross between a King Charles Spaniel and a toy poodle, so he will only be a small dog.  But then, I am only a small person, so we will fit together nicely!  I can’t wait until I can take him out to the beach!  At the moment, he can only go in the garden, until he has had all his injections.  Anyway, here he is! 



Who could not love that cute little face?!

Well, I’ll leave you again for now, hoping that all is well in your little corner of the world.  See you again soon!



I love reading, and have done so since I was a little girl.  I’m sure many of you also love settling down with a good book.  Anyway, I came across this quote on Pinterest, and thought it was rather lovely, so decided to share it with you here today ....

What a sweet little Cavapoo, Thisisme (did I spell it right?) My little dog is a Cockapoo and she is a little smaller than midsize I think. Your little guy is so sweet with that beautiful champagne color, some call it apricot color. Did you say his name Benji?

I read every night when I go to bed. Sometimes only 1 or 2 pages, and I doze off. Most nights I can read more than a chapter or two. I enjoy murder mysteries, with a little romance. The books you show on Facebook that you read look very good, and one day I will have to get one to read. And, you are right...who doesn't like to read? I love to read, and I am a firm believer that it promotes and advances your daily vocabulary, even if it is only book for fun.

A lovely post, Thisisme. I too have some daffodils already sprouted, and some have buds. I always get some blooms by February, but only if there is plenty of sun.

Have a wonderful week, and a great time with your little cutie! Sending him a squeeze and you a hug from Texas! ♥

Love, love, love your new pup.

Thank you for the promise of spring. I know it will come. It snowed here today. I needed thee cheer of daffodils.

Hi there Jo-Anne. I do smile when you say ‘stinking hot’!! I’m glad that you enjoy reading too. I really don’t think that I could cope with your heat! Take care.

Hi Suzanne. Good to see you! Yes, you spelt it correctly! Strange, but I always thought that a cockerpoo was bigger than the cavapoo ?. Officially the colour is Apricot,, but I quite like the idea of a champagne dog! 🍾Anyway, I’m sure Benji won’t get too big. I wanted a dog that I could handle - lifting in and out of the car etc. I’ll be glad when he has had his second injection next week, because then I can start taking him out for little walks. At the moment, he can only go out in the garden. Ii’ve been thinking of you, and hoping that you’re feeling alright at the moment. I love reading, because it takes us into another world for a while, doesn’t it?! Anyway, have a good week my Texan friend. ❤️

Hi Sally! So glad you like my new pup! He is nine weeks old now, but such a good little fella. Looking forward to when I can take him out for proper walks. Have a lovely vacation, and, yes, I think we’re all looking forward to Spring, and the longer days ahead.
