Miscellaneous Monday

This is a view of the front garden
at Tullie House Museum & Art Gallery
where l work as a gallery assistant
the house is Jacobean and recently the garden was 
re-landscaped in the style of the period 
with plants around the sun dial


  1. I wouldn't say no to a country pad like that one! :)

  2. For a minute, I thought you were going to say that it was your place! Nearly fell off my chair!

    Nuts in May

  3. Me too, Sazzie. Wouldn't that be a kick in the head?

    Good to see you back again. XXX

  4. I thought the same thing too.
    I want a house like this!

  5. Same here. My first thought was that is where you had moved to! Hope you are all right.

  6. i love these formal knot type gardens - unfortunately my own is more a tangle!

  7. It's a lovely home, very stately.

    On a different note, I've always been drawn to a saying attributed to Julian of Norwich: All shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of thing shall be well.
    It's served me in many a tough spot.

  8. Looks like a lovely place to eat your sandwiches in summer. I've got a quad full of kids to sit in!

  9. what a lovely sun filled place .. and such a nice way to start the week. xo

  10. That's so pretty, I bet you wish it was sunny it was sunny there now! (sorry!!)

    How's things?

  11. Hey Saz - was I dreaming or has something been removed?

    I feel scatterbrained just thinking about it now wondering if I did dream it one night while I was thinking of you.


  12. can you smoke there. I don't but I'd like to. Glad to see you around, Dear Friend

  13. You may be only one person in the world, but you may also be the world to one person.............................................

  14. Dearest Saz,

    A beautiful photo of a fantastic place!!! I will be thinking of this when you say you are taking a break at work...Do I see a Red Bubble shot here? Hope so... Perhaps even a future watercolor? Love you! Janine XO

  15. Now that's a lovely view to have where you work! Plus, if you aren't the gardner, it's a thing to be enjoyed, rather than worked at, which is a boon to life.

    It must be lovely to see the seasons march through it, too. Just a gentle, pleasing way to see time march past, bringing its cycles back over and over. Rather fitting for a place with a sundial.

    Thanks for sharing that picture, and I too, thought "Good lord, is that where she lives!" and then swiftly, "That must be hell to weed!" because I'm an overly practical sort at times ;-)

  16. With a garden like that, I'd run to work everyday! LOL! Man, I'd be there on the weekends! I can just feel the sun, warm on my face enjoyng the surroundings!


Thanks for stopping by!

Take the weight of your feet, draw up a chair and pour yourself a cuppa. Leave your troubles at the door and together we shall ride out the storms.
I will walk a while in your shoes...

Saz x

just dropped by... visit Mum's blog and to say Hi to a few friends... I hope you know, you are all never very far from my thoughts. Many of whom I...
