    1. But not as gorgeous as your brilliantly coloured sky!
      Dog wisdom, I couldn't agree more; fun, devotion, silliness - what's not to like!

    1. Thank you, Eileen. I see that we live not too far away from each other. Perhaps you saw the same sunrise?

    1. You're right, we had a lovely day, although rain did set in later. (But, hey, this is England, after all!)

    1. Hello there, Doc. No gardening going on here at the moment. How's the weather with you? Are you keeping the aspidistra company, tucked up indoors?

    1. The colours came and went in just a few short minutes - must have been specially arranged for Skywatch Friday!

    1. Tom. you make me laugh out loud! Amongst all the 'beautiful's there is your response - do you by any chance have some Yorkshire blood in you?

  8. Hello and welcome. It was a great sky to waken up to although it didn't last for long - there isn't a great deal of colour to be seen in England at this time of year!

    1. It was wonderful colour to waken to - it's been grey ever since!

  10. Oh how gorgeous! I think morning is my favorite part of the day, to see the miracle of movement between the earth and sun, stars and....our hearts! THANK YOU for visiting my post! Anita

    1. I'll confess to starting the day very slowly at this time of year, and sometimes, after peering out of the window, think that it might be quite nice to stay tucked up in bed!

  11. So very beautiful. There's something about seeing the sunrise that makes me feel a little bit ahead for the day. (I confess: I don't do this nearly often enough.)

    I really enjoyed your comment yesterday on my "Comfort" post. I couldn't agree more that a warm dog snoozing on your lap is one of life's best comforts. I too know the sadness of not having that comfort anymore. I had a toy poodle for over 12 years that I loved dearly. She died 2 years ago, & still there isn't a week that goes by when I don't miss her in some way. I do have an Airedale now. He's an overgrown happy baby, but there's no replacing my sweet little poodle. I have the good memories though.

    It's so nice "meeting" you. I'll look forward to reading more of your posts. I love England (I've been there only once), & I love gardening, too.

    Best wishes,
    Keri

  12. Welcome, Keri, how nice to hear from you.
    The first dog that I chose as a child and could call my own was a miniature black poodle,Michelle. I spent hours with her, training and grooming. Other family dogs were far less high-maintenance! I loved her to bits and those that have followed. My last adored smooth fox-terrier, Maisie, was put to sleep in December '12 and I miss her very much. (She featured quite a bit in my blog!) But how nice to have an Airedale. They are real characters, a Yorkshire breed, which must be good. (I'm Yorkshire born!)
    I think it probably quite easy to love England from a distance. I love the summers when it's fine, the winters when it's crisp, but oh, dear me, the endless grey sogginess that comes in between!! The garden needs such a lot attention but it is far too wet to do anything at the moment.
