Sunshine Today Mostly Inside.

Not the beautiful sunshine like the past few days, between 10 and 11 there was abit of sunshine from behind the clouds but sadly no direct sun today it is grey and it is raining now.

But I do not mind too much, as there was a glimmer of sun again when I emerged very relaxed from the shower.

Richie got the Motomed from the other room and once my feet were strapped in he had a great surprise for me.

Yesterday he went to the garden centre and bought some spring flowers, and planted up two troughs of spring flowers, in the room so now I have daffodils, primulas, pansies, lavender and outside behind Spike pansies and primulas.

He also got me a beautiful yellow orchid, the little yellow flowers look to me like little yellow butterflies, and it is lovely.

The flowers are really gorgeous and the lavender smells very nice and the three roses that Cecile gave me for my birthday are even prettier next to the other plants.

And the hibiscus that Willes, our wonderful neighbour gave me for my birthday looks even better with the other plants.

Makes the bedroom look so much nicer, really feels like spring has come now and when the daffodils blossom it will have really arrived for me.

Not long after I was back in bed Marianne came to visit and brought some sunshine with her,
hearing her ring the bell got the dogs going, they went mad when they heard her voice.

Spike is in good form, hard to believe it is only a week since the operation, but he is almost putting his foot on the ground already.

The wound is healing well and looks healthy, the stitches will be taken out on Monday, by next week Friday he should be able to have the plastic bucket taken off his head.

It is wonderful the progress Spike has made in just one week, especially after how terrible the aftermath of the anaesthetic was for the little dog.

Very impressed with how cheerful Spike has been and how well and quickly he adapted to running on 3 legs.

He also demonstrated how clever he is, he uses the plastic head bucket to scoop up his biscuit and or crumbs if they drop out of his mouth.

So despite lack of sunshine outside there was plenty inside today for me.

How sweet of Richie to plant the flowers for you!! What a dear.

I am glad to hear how well Spike is doing and his method of scooping up his biscuits has impressed Catfish and Annie.

Today we have sunshine after a cool and rainy day yesterday it is a pleasant day here.
