A Different Perspective

Yes, I did spend most of my day in the garden today enjoying the sunshine. I have been working on writing more of "My Story". It is one thing writing it but another getting down to typing it on the computer. I got as far as the time when I was living on the ocean today and got fired up with all the interesting events myself. I will post a chapter at a time once I get them typed up on the computer.
Apart from that I dozed in the sun and ate a tasty lunch wishing that you all could join me.
I had my tea indoors as I wanted to watch the DVD of the film "The Queen" starring Helen Mirren. After that I did my ironing and here I am back where I began this morning, posting a blog. How's that for addiction!
Everything in the garden has a different perspective when filmed from a prone position on my lounger! At this time of year, and especially after the weather we have had, there is little colour and everything is looking a little tired.
So this is how it is today.















I did have my feet in this picture but then decided against it! They did not add to the ambience of the picture.

The fish were sun bathing too.






In case anybody is wondering from previous posts, I have not shown what was to be my new Gazebo. There was a part missing when we eventually came to erect it and it was proving so complicated getting it, that we have accepted a refund and it is going back. I will reconsider next Spring.

It's good to see a person enjoying the sun and the garden on a pleasant day. And this is the first time I've ever seen fish sunbathing!!

I thought Helen Mirren did a fabulous job as the Queen in that movie! Not sure about the Tony Blair character though...

Your garden looks so lovely, Barbara! I'd love to take a seat on your bench and admire all the flowers and roses!

Oh sorry, I think I wasn't very clear in my Saturday post. That's not my son; the photo is of our friends. Yes, the older boy is getting tall! He is taller than both of my sons!
I did enjoy my tea!

What a lovely relaxing way to spend your day.

I really enjoyed The Queen when I watched it a few weeks ago.

Barbara,

The lounge looks very comfortable....

I watched 'The Queen' recently and thought it was pretty good. Wonder what the 'real' queen thought of the portrayal of 'the queen'.
