Squirrels And Sunflowers

Thank you so much for all your comments and messages on my blog birthday.  They are all very much appreciated. 

I haven't abandoned blogging.  I am back for another year.  Yay.

I have simply experienced a wee technological hitch over the past couple of weeks due to the squirrels who live in the trees surrounding my telephone pole.  So to speak.

They were clearly in need of some strips of wiring to enhance their home, and took the opportunity to eat through my telephone landline.

I woke up two weeks ago to find my telephone line dead.  And my connection to the blogging world, well, disconnected.

My provider company promised it would be repaired within three days.  It wasn't.  Mentioning no names. BT.

My landline has now been restored, and normal blogging can be resumed.

I have started making some new rings designs.  I have also started growing my own lettuce.  I am on fire.

And, at the beginning of the summer I planted sunflower seeds.  And they are in full bloom...

Aren't they beautiful?  I feel happy just looking at them.

Have a beautiful, sunny weekend.

  7. Sunflowers are wonderful! Too bad about those squirrels though (I know how you must have felt... storms messed with our internet and phone for four days).
    Glad to hear you are back. Can't wait to see the new rings :D

  8. Nice to hear about you.
    Your neighbour squirrels should behave more politely.:)
    Nice pictures - very optimistic for the cloudy weather we have here.

  9. Ted and Bunny, the lettuce just got big enough for me to take my first crop of leaves, roll on lunch time!
