What a glorious day, the sunshine is so warm in my garden; can you spot the cat?  I am loving the colours of the grape-vine this year, all I need now is a red Acer tree (think that’s right)

Lovely blooms and colours, I really like Fucias and they stay all year here as no frost and warmer temperatures.  The turf has all been pulled up and my oiled stepping-stones put down, with Camomile, spreading Thyme with pink flowers and Lilly of the valley in between them.  Will need some more fragrant ground cover in the spring; I think it will look and smell gorgeous.

I recently had a short story published in the Folkestone anthology, I can now say I have received a written review!  How wonderful does that make you feel, it not only encourages you to keep going but it also lets you know someone is reading your work.
As I was so impressed with this review I would like to say a very big thank you to Sheila for not only taking the time to read it but also to put pen to paper, it has made my year!  Here is the review.
Hi Karen, just sat and read your short story and I was really impressed! I can’t begin to imagine where you start. How excited she is at the beginning and full of love for Steve. The anticipation of the Summer Ball and then the let down and despair at the end of the love affair. It’s all there,well done!! 
Please keep it up Karen. Looking forward to reading your book when it’s finished! Xxxx. 🙂
I will now get back to writing, have a lovely day everyone. x
