Long time absent

I'm still alive! Grin!

We've been doing a lot of stuff (including ordering a new Motability car yesterday) and I haven't had time and energy to update.

But I'm trying to keep photos uploaded in a relatively timely manner on my Flickr account.

Back yard from the bathroom window


Backyard from above

The back yard is looking wonderful at the moment - the lilies and the wonderfully scented mock orange are in full flower. My only complaint is that it's been mostly too cold to sit out and enjoy.

Wish I had smell-o-vision for the mock orange photo!

John took this photo of our back yard earlier this evening.

Beautiful back yard! And I've always wanted to know the name of that lovely scented stuff. Mock Orange! Thank you, I can smell it as I type :-)

Your backyard is lovely, very peaceful. I can almost smell the orange scent.

I love mock orange - my dad has a wonderful bush of it in his garden. The smell of it always reminds me of home.
