From my seat

I read a post on someone's blog, (sorry, can't remember the name of the blog), which was a series of pictures taken from where the person was sitting.  What a good idea. Here am I, sitting in the garden room and above my head are orchids.

To my left is my blue/green blanket - no pussies there today.

On the floor is a basket of old mags and a basket of wool for my 2012 blanket - which I have been neglecting recently.

Above the baskets is a window into the back room and you can see the side of the juke box through it.

The next window along shows our big bird of paradise plant in the corner.

In front of that window are two more orchids with a bunch of bluebells drying - I'm trying to dry some flowers to make petal confetti. It may work, it may not.

Ahead of me are even more orchids sunning themselves. There aren't many flowers on them at the moment.

Lower my eyes and hello, there's me. My white legs don't go very brown. The two cardboard boxes are play boxes for the cats. Whenever we have a box we always leave it lying about for a few weeks so the cats can play in them! (Catty people will understand.) The plastic tub contains water for soaking orchid baskets.

On the floor next to me are my new (yes new, not Charity shopped) flip flops and I notice that I've lost one of the labels from the one on the right. I wonder where that's gone.

To my right are courgette plants which DH grew from seed. They will soon be ready to be planted.

Also to my right is a newspaper, book and a 'little bit of sherry' seeing as it's sherry time.

Hope you enjoyed the tour from my settee. Cheers!

  3. Irypt! Thankyou for the look around your garden room!

  4. It was a great tour mum! What a great idea, maybe I should do one too, except our lounge is quite small so maybe there wouldnt be that much to see. And yes, I do understand about the cat boxes!!

  5. Lovely idea for a mini tour!

    We are the same with cardboard boxes, the bunnies love them.

  6. Great tour! Your legs look like mine. The flip flops are great! Thanks.

  7. My legs are the same! My arms and face will brown, but my legs remain Arctic.

    I enjoyed the tour, thank you :)

  8. It was me :-).
    Love the mini-trip and your new shoes.

  11. Loved the post. Legs could have been mine, ditto flipflops. No boxes at the moment but do understand. Still surrounded by piles of books.

  12. What a lovely place to sit and relax, especially when the sun's shining as it is at the moment. I bet the orchids are beautiful when they're in flower, I've got a moth orchid which is still in flower since before Christmas, the flowers usually last a while but I think it's outdoing itself this time.


Thank you for your comments. it's always exciting reading them.
