Taivas, a toy and a trip

This week has been busy as I thought but I think I've decided on a robin for my next art project. It's from the photo by Jan (Down Yonder Green Valley).
I took some pics of Taivas with her new toy from our Secret Summer parcel, also have posted a few from my trip this week to Furzey Gardens. Mary and I spent a pleasant afternoon there on Wednesday, we loved watching the little moorhen chicks running over the lily pads.Furzey House is a christian retreat in a secluded part of the gardens.
I had a fright yesterday when walking Ashley and Disney - poor Disney was pottering about, minding her own business when suddenly a pony went into reverse and kicked her. It was hard enough to knock Disney off her feet and I was worried that she was badly hurt - when she got up she couldn't put any weight on her back leg. Fortunately it wore off quickly and she is fine, helped by regular doses of arnica during the afternoon and evening.

Photos are great Karen as always,and Tavias looks like he is having fun with the outsized tennis ball.

Oooh I'm really excited now, can't wait to see the Robin!

Sorry to hear about your poor doggy though, bet she has a nasty bruise, hope she will be okay.

Thank goodness Disney wasn't seriously hurt.

laurie - It is a beautiful house - it's the christian retreat house in a secluded part of Furzey Gardens, New Forest, Hampshire. Anyway can stay there that's in need of rest and solitude. The gardens are open to the public, but this house and it's garden are private - but close enough for a photo! Thanks for visiting my blog.
