Beauty All Around....

I love where I live

I love waking up on a sunny morning and gazing out at the ancient, leafy trees looming large and protectively at the end of our garden.

Then seeing a squirrel, or two, scurrying through the branches on their way for one of their daily feeding sessions next door...

I love the narrow, rustic road leading to our estate, with it's hint of sea at the bottom.....

And the leafy country lane with it's almost tree canopy....

That meanders it's way down to our lovely, but stony, beach....

With it's lovely sights...

To make your spirits soar....

I love the nearby promenade on which we can enjoy a leisurely stroll....

I love the nearby hill we can climb to admire all the views....

Or to simply feel on top of the world....

Oh yes, I do love where I live. I am very lucky and it's nice to take time-out in order to appreciate the small things in life.

Like hearing the patient's exultations at receiving her first teaspoons of cold water, or seeing the simple joy spreading across her face as she takes her first spoonfuls of food (a yogurt) in a month!

And of course the nicest view of all is the one that greets you, when all the musing and perusing is done, that whets your palate and softens your landing back to reality....




  1. I love where you live too! Someday I would love to see it in person! xo

  2. You really live in a beautiful place. I would also love to visit. :)

  3. I love where you live too, and even more now that I've seen it in real life! And I'm very glad to read that the patient is feeling better and enjoying the little things in life xx

  4. @Tanya Savko: If you ever make it over here I will walk you down our leafy lane to the beach!

    @Midlife Singlemum: I will walk you there too!

    @Blue Sky: I will walk you there again! Any time!It is really good news about the patient....who continues to confound and amaze. All very much day by day ;-)

  7. Love your photos, Jazzy. Your narrow rustic road with a hint of sea could be my road! I don't know about you but I couldn't live anywhere but near the sea. Glad your mum is making some progress.

  8. @Bright Side of Life: When I was a little girl I always said I wanted to live by the sea and now I can't imagine living anywhere else!

  9. wish we were by the beach! I grew up by the beach and i miss it! x

  10. Sorry it's taken so long to comment - have had a very manic couple of weeks! What a beautiful place you live, but most importantly - so glad to hear that your mum has had some food at last - you must be very pleased - hope you enjoyed a nice glass of wine!

  11. @The Beesley Buzz: I do love living by the beach, even if ours is a very stony one!

    @Older Mum: Oh, don't worry... 'Tis the same here! Thank you. I'm STILL enjoying the wine ;-)

    Thanks for your comments :-)
