Into Lockdown then back out (gradually)

So, it’s been a while since posting last time, and much has happened, but mainly it’s been due to the lockdown and the excitement of things opening up again.

We were happy with our old house, and slightly sad to go, but thrilled to be in our new place.

After a week or two, we started to see the light in our new place and get ourselves in order.  It’s been good that it’s kept us busy.  The house was fine, but hadn’t had much spent on it since it was originally built in 1995 it seems.  But of course we knew that.  It’s been fun getting our own things in, and putting our own mark on it.

Couple of the pictures above show some of our wildlife visitors ! It’s been great to watch deer, foxes, woodpeckers, rabbits, blue tits, squirrels, goldfinch etc..

We have also enjoyed getting to know a little of the local area, and we walk out of our driveway into some pretty countryside –

And of course, ultimately discovered why some of our new plants weren’t thriving as well as we would have hoped for –

And now, the lockdown is slowly being lifted.  Too early ? Too much ? Too late ? Too little ? It’s not for me to judge.  We will continue to do our thing and be cautious, and watch how this all goes.
