If you have been following my blog, you will know that I have been very busy! I am sorry that I have not visited you all as much as usual and the next two weeks will be the same as my beloved older brother who lives in Munich is coming to stay. I haven’t seen him for three years! We are going to spend time photographing the beautiful county we grew up in – the coast and the buildings – and make a pilgrimage around all the places we lived – eight different addresses and two where Mum and Dad lived after we had all left home.

    UK and the Netherlands do window boxes very well indeed.

    Wolfhounds, I have only seen at dog shows I’ve attended, haven’t known any up close and personal. We look at a beauty such this and we an massive over the top canine, but a dog if wee in size just sees another dog. They respond to temperament. This one looks gentle and calm.

    Being united with your brother will be a ‘Blast’.

      I love it! It’s a beautiful design and very appropriate given that my pals and I have just knitted 21 metres in pink for Wool Against Weapons! I bought two, one for one of my knit n natter pals too! 🙂

    So eager to see the photographs of your upcoming trip. Hope you have a wonderful visit with your brother. And the wolfhound is HUGE. I had no idea they were that big.

      I have never seen a creature like it! He seemed very docile. 🙂
