This week’s My Sunday Photo is the first day this year we’ve properly spent out in the garden. It’s still too water logged on the grass really, but we got the kite out for some kite flying. Of course, as soon as we got it unfurled, the wind died down and N got bored trying. So while he went off and cut the grass (with scissors), I enjoyed some relaxation and kite flying.

So she mostly just roams the farm all day. This morning though, I’d opened the door to get a shot of the… Continue Reading “My Sunday Photo – friendly labrador”
