Hello everyone! I hope you're well and you're having a good week. Mine has been eventful in a good way, especially over last weekend and at the beginning of the week. There was a lunch time outing to a local Italian deli/caffé and the traditional blowing out of the candles on my birthday cake at tea time, some gardening in the sunshine on Sunday afternoon and a day out in York on the Monday. A bit of a rest was needed on the Tuesday! Some reading, writing, watching the televised programmes from the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, sorting out some technical glitches on my printer, doing the usual household chores also filled my days.

My husband and I went to York to meet a blog friend and her husband. Marilyn from Portland, Oregon has a blog Delights of the Heart - "seeking beauty in everyday life" and she certainly conveys that in the imaginative photo images she shares and the verses she often writes to illustrate them. I've also learnt a lot about different types of tea and enjoyed seeing the tea rooms that Marilyn visits. Naturally we had lunch in a tea room before taking a stroll around the York Museum Gardens. Everywhere we went there was something interesting to see, talk about and photograph. I'll share more of my week in a later post.
