After the rain the rest of the week was pretty good.

Wednesday was rainy and overcast and Thursday just a bit cool by Friday we were back to spring weather so time to go and visit first to my friend Barbara's house.
She has a windmill too and it doesn't work but it's much more realistic than mine this one looks like a windmill.
These are pretty flowers you always need pretty flowers,
And I have always liked her mural just outside the back door.
These are nice green ferns.
And tis flower is just so lovely.

As are the broms

and we can't forget Kyton the dog he stood so still and posed for me.
Next it was off to my daughters house to stay the night, we had lots of chats and a very good Thi dinner.



Angus is always good for a few photos
I just like these things ,

Some new fruit trees.


On Sunday just down the road and across the street there was a wedding.
All the wedding guests climbed into the big red bus and the wedding party into the old english taxies.
There was a guy with a rather large drum and he banged away on it so most of the street came out to see what was happening we are a curious bunch.



And they rode off into the sunset and around the corner, hope all goes well for the young couple.

    1. Angus is always good in photos but a bit smelly at the moment, not warm enough for regular baths yet.

  3. I was intrigued by the plant growing from the wall. I suppose there is a pot, but I couldn't make it out.

    1. No pot it grows on the wall, somewhere in there is a wood base it was attached to most likely at some stage.

  11. That is a novel idea for a wedding. I wonder if the couple are English born.

    1. As far as I know they are middle eastern but maybe the other side of the marriage was English .

  12. Hi Merle - lots of fun things you have shown us today. Love your friend's mural and exotic flowers and plants. Nice that you got to spend time with your daughter and Angus. Love the last photo of him - he has such a funny personality. I like your daughter's chairs. Love how the wedding party used the big bus and the old taxi's. A nice way to end the wedding. Hope you have a good week! xo Karen

  14. Merle,
    It's nice that you got to spend time with your daughter and chat all night long. Angus is sooo cute. I've never seen a flower like that red one. It's so interesting and pretty. You got to witness a wedding, how special is that! That red bus is cool for the wedding party.

    Have a great week, Merle.

    love,
    ~Sheri

  15. I love seeing wedding cars! and the bus is a great idea. That will be a wedding to remember for sure.
    I like all the things in Barbara's yard, so green and pretty, just like yours, but different plants.
    The red zygo-cactus flower is very bright, my mum grew pink ones, but mine never flowered.

    1. The bus was a great idea, but they dropped off all the guests at the parents place, lots were very merry then got in their cars and drove away not a good idea .
      Do the zygo-catcus grow from a cuttings.
      Merle...............

  16. yes, they do grow from cuttings, but I'm not sure if you have to pick a certain time of year, ask around maybe someone else can tell you.
