Great anticipation

Oh my goodness at last the day has come!
I have been in such a deliciously butterfly state of anticipation and excitement at the iminent arrival of the Faraways!
Yes at last they are coming home for a visit, 24 hours on a plane from Melbourne and I will have the happy~rush at Heathrow airport!
And so I have been preparing the lane, making it as special as I can for a memorable visit to England.
I have been fixinga nd tying and dead heading the glorious June blooms.

and decorating the Lane in readiness...

Mr.Boodle wonders what all the fuss is about?

And then, at long last in the evening sun my dream is realised and the little people get to walk on our little piece of England in the fading summer sun.

life is good

long evening shadows as we head for the stream to spot dragonflies

All is peaceful and perfect


We are off to see castles tommorrow!
