Monday Morning

 The boys are back at school today. The holidays have been wonderful but there is such a sense of joy that floods through my being when they hop onto the school bus ready to fill their minds with all sorts of things (mainly at lunchtime when they hang out with their friends). 
As you've probably picked up over the past few years, I'm not one for housework. But there is something almost mystical about that moment when you sweep and the floor stays looking sparkly for more than 5 minutes. I'm having a moment aren't I!
Anyhoo - I wanted to show you the watercolour above that my neighbour Dominique painted for my birthday.
 And that's me, blue hair and all, balancing on my own pair of stilts. I did have blue hair for the first half of this year but now it's blond. I like to think it's been captured for eternity in this painting. Look at the tiger's expression!
My dogs were looking a little sheepish this morning being used to store pav hats and birds so I had to take a photograph of them. Poor little things.
And I couldn't not show you my wisteria wisteriaring away. It's a glorious spot for a cup of tea or glass of wine.
 And my first bunch of roses. Yip, yip, wahoo!
Lots of love,
Kate. xxx


  1. Oh wow, what a beautiful garden!

  2. It's all wonderful! Enjoy the quiet time, hopefully under the fragrant wisteria!

  3. Great painting. I love wisteria. Yours is really great.

  4. Beautiful garden!Great painting from your neighbour also and never forget...a clean house is a sign of a wasted life! ha,ha,ha


  5. Hi Kate,
    Thank you for a happy post on a Monday morning (even though I am reading it on a Friday - they can both be tough mornings!) I have nominated you for a Sunshine Award because you always bring a smile or ray of sunshine into my day with your posts. This is my way of saying thank you! No commitment is necessary but you can read about the Sunshine Award here:
    Have a lovely weekend, and look forward to next Monday morning and may your wisteria keep wisteriaring! ;-)
    Cheers, Jodie

    1. Thank you Jodie - what a lovely thing to do. I am trying to spend as much time under the wisteria at the moment although it's a little cold at the moment! Love Kate. xx

  6. Wonderful painting! I was a bit confused by the appleblossoms at first, but then i remembered: down under... here the trees drop their leaves... wish you a nice springtime. Christiane

    1. Yes - it's Spring here! Lovely too. Love Kate. xx
