The View From My Window

I am very fortunate to live overlooking a 1930s park and the view from my lounge window at this time of year is stunning:

In a couple of months'time, this will be loaded with cherries. Passers by get to pick what they can reach and the birds get the rest. It makes for interesting coloured splatters on the cars parked nearby - if you know what I mean.

I bought some lovely looking tulip bulbs last year but because of the snow, I only planted them about 7 weeks ago. Imagine my delight to see them flowering already:

Remember my pink bags that I really didn't like here ? Well I overdyed them and although they're still not my first choice of colours, They look much better and if they don't sell, I'll be giving them as Christmas presents - YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!

Finally to all you cash-savvy shoppers out there. Buy a Telegraph on Saturday or Sunday (£1.80) and there will be a Body Shop voucher inside to the value of £5 with no minimum spend.

I was going to ask you if you were going to post a photo of your view, it's so lovely at this time of year and a beautiful park, I used to walk there a lot when I just had one baby!
Thanks for the tip about the voucher. xx
