Success :o) :o) :o)


As the weather has been so good we have been out and about in the car ~ we always manage to lose our way but do come across some lovely little places we otherwise may never see

Lyng Fishing Lakes are so calm ~ such a lovely place to just go sit and enjoy the scenery and all the wild life that goes on in there ~

I am going to try and save this in the hope I don't lose it again

Love Sandra xxxx

Oh Ally, those are terrific photos.  Again, it makes me want to pay you a visit!  You seem to live in such a wonderful area so full of life!  But tell me again, is that a fish tank in someone's piano???  


astoriasand said...

Well Ally at last and well worth waiting for too.I have realy enjoyed looking at them.Such a variety of pics.They are lovely clear pics and what wonderful selection of fruit you have.3lb of apples please 3lb grapes LOL!! As for the exotic looking plant thats a new one on me,but never grew them kind always was a little wary would they stand our cold winters.Well it looks exotic to me, but maybe it's not? Maybe Sandra can find that out for you seeing as she works at the garden centre LOL!! The grand piano was unusual wasn't it?I adore the village duckponds I could sit around one of those all day long,weather permitting of course.The lake looks a beautiful tranquil place too.Lovely lovely, I realy enjoyed this post.Thanx for the troubles you have had and taking time out to post again to share them with us.Take Care Have lovely evening.God Bless Kath

Hi Ally - Pic #39 looks like a Shrimp plant but I could be wrong as I thought they were indoor plants.  Lovely entry again.
Love, Angie, xx

Oh Ally, what wonderful pictures!  I would so like to live in the countryside, it seems such a beautiful place.  Also, I think that one's photographs and graphics are wwhat makes a journal unique.

I'm so glad we have had some sunshine at last.  It finally feels like Summer has arrived!  I hope the weather stays like this because in a few weeks I am off to Devon for a week.

I do not like getting lost while I'm in the car.  It scares me, lol!  But you are right, if we didn't get lost we would not discover hidden treasures which Britain has to offer.

Have a good day!
Leigh :o)"

Hi Ally,
Glad I got to see the rest of the photos. But I wish you knew the name of that plant because we have one in our garden and we don't know what it's called either.

You don't live in the "Lakes District"
of much fame? I'll have to find a map.
Conservation must be alive and well in
the UK. Goodie: Maybe I'll win the Lottery
and thus be able to finance a thorough tour.
'Dream on' I tell myself.......

Ally I loved seeing all the pictures!  Thanks so much for sharing them with us!

susanebunn said...

Oh Ally, what wonderful pictures!  I love cruising garden centres this time of year, now tht the rush is over.  Isn't it amazing how the simplest flower, the daisy, can be so beautiful in it's own right?  Thanks so much for sharing!


gaboatman said...

These were great   What a lovely day you had going to the lake and the garden centre.  Someone at the garden centre has quite a sense of humor.  Who would have though of putting the skeletons in the anemone tank?  Ten we come to the piano tank!  Hah!  Thanks for sharing these with us.  i enjoyed seeing the things in your garden, too!

Hi Ally.  I love all your pics.  Especially your garden and the veggies and fruit!  I have cherry tomatoes as well.  We get about a handful of little red ones everyday.  I think the family are sick of them already though. lol  I love all the little adventures you get into and share with us.  love, Shelly

rachealcarol said...

:) you have been happy snaping Ally and they're all lovely.  Your white rose is gorgous and that lake is to dream by :)  The piano is so unusual, glad you snapped that :) Rache

jacksj989 said...

Thank you for taking me on your outing, by way of the photos, it was wonderful to see the sights of the area you are so familier with.


I have yet to resolve my on line problems.

As always, thank you for your help and kindness.

By for now,

You do always manage to find the most interesting things, Ally.  Lol at those "little" pigs.  They were pretty large.  I love the Nowhere Lane sign.  Have yourself a good week. Love xx Chris

lindachapmanuk said...

lovely pics, I enjoyed looking at them...Nowhere Lane! what a nice sounding place to live! Linda xx

Ally, I so enjoyed going through the 40 photos you posted large size.  AOL has really done something good here as I got into the pictures and scanned through much quicker then we were able to do a few months ago.  Loved the flowers, and the swans and other little animals.  The greenery, oh just everything.  I felt like I was on the trip with you.   Thank you.
