Angel is a rather small West Highland White Terrier, what she lacks in height she more than makes up for in the sweetest, sassiest personality and sheer bark power~I think that must be a Westie thing! Angel would like to invite you for walkies around our garden where we like to work and play, Thanks to Mother Nature and the very capable assistance of Mr Nash, it is rather lush & lovely:)
We love sitting beneath our lovely big Beech tree we are inspired to write, reflect and wonder at the magic of nature all around us.
Not all herbs are good for dogs, so Angel has chosen wisely as Oregano is good for Iron, B6 and Calcium. My poor baby girl has metal pins in both her back legs and this is a great addition to Grannie’s home cooking for her!
We love herbs and have quite a variety spread throughout the garden and in pots…LOTS of pots and as I find them, more are added all the time!
~ Angelica, Basil, Bay, Borage, Comfrey, Coriander,Curry leaf, Chives, Dill, Fennel, Hyslop, Jasmine, Lavender, Lovage, Lemon Balm, Marjoram, Mint, Parsley, Peppermint, Rosemary, Sage, Sorrel, Tarragon, Thyme ~
We get a LOT of different birds visiting from the tiny Wrens, Sparrows, Bullfinches to the Corvidae family of Crows, Magpies and occasional Rooks. There are always plenty of treats ready and waiting for everyone on the bird table! We are also blessed to have our family of Robins and super sweet little blue tits who live in the garden all year round alongside the ‘big girls’, the Wood Pigeons and their cousins the collared Doves. There are plenty of places to nest, I think I countered over 70 trees once~mostly lovely tall Blue Spruce!
As the Sun goes to sleep, the night garden is illuminated by starlight. We watch the constellations, the transits of Venus and the Moon moving across the night sky. There may be the rustle of a fox and we hear Mr Owl, a lovely treat indeed!
Angel loves her garden, and snow is rather special, she romps through the flakes and becomes a giant snow ball! It sticks to her fur and her paws and after she has had her fun it is time to come indoors to be cleaned off, warmed up and given a tasty meal…
Butterflies, Beetle and Bees love to visit, and when I buy local honey I wonder if the bees had stopped by our gorgeous PomPoms, The Alliums, for a tasty snack!
Angel’s GrandPa has very green fingers, and our ‘rainbow’ garden is abundant with many treasures throughout the turning of the wheel of the year. We delight in the perfection of all God’s Holy creation and are indeed blessed to be surrounded by such beauty.
We shall say bye bye now and hope you enjoyed your visit to Angel’s garden:)
