A Spring Walk

This weekend Braveheart's sister, brother in law and one of his nephews came for a visit. We were delighted to welcome them, as they had not seen our house and garden before. We went for a walk together along the Wey Navigation, where I saw these lovely, cheerful pots of flowers on one of the houseboats.

I loved this spring blossom

and these brightly coloured barges

 and this graceful swan by the weir

I also completed a new project this weekend, this crochet lace doily. I am quite addicted to doily making at the moment.

The Path is Long, with Many a Winding Turn...

We've been spending some time in the garden, and here is our new garden path! It will run from the house all the way down to the vegetable bed, and I think it really pulls the garden layout together.

While I was outside, I took some photos of the garden emerging into Spring:
