I found this little chap today and brought him home to join the rest of my little collection.
This one is very real though, being part beardy Josh has lots of long shaggy hair and it's hard to see his face. As the weather has been so hot Mr C took the scissors to him and gave him a trim. He looks like a young pup and is all soft and fluffy. He seems to like it and has been bounding around with even more energy than usual.
I found these lovely old deck chairs at the local antiques centre. After seeing some similar ones on the lovely Ted and Bunny blog and getting a few words of encouragement I went back and snapped them up just in time to make the most of them in the sunshine.
Finally I couldn't resist sharing some photos of the first of Mr C's David Austin roses that are blooming in the garden. They seem to have done surprisingly well this year and I love them. I don't do any of the hard work in the garden, I just enjoy the rewards of Mr C's work.
