Es Precioso

Last weekend in my garden and Winter Light at the Oxford Botanic Garden






Oxford Botanic Garden Christmas Tree


 How I wish that I had saved those Poppy and Nigella seed heads just a little bit longer now!







It was a perfectly gorgeous set up at the Botanic Gardens. The moon was full, the lights were stunning and although the toes lost feeling quickly despite the double layer of socks; a quick trip to the mulled wine/hot chocolate tent and greenhouse helped warm things up a bit.

I believe I even eavesdropped in on a proposal by one of the candlelit ponds.
They took a few selfies; narrating out loud: "#shesaidyes",
and when they walked away, I heard her gush: "Es Precioso!"
Ahhhh.... L'amour!

Weekend Walkies

The kids wish they could walk our dog on the lead, but she pulls too much. They enjoy having a go in a field, where it doesn't matter too much if they need to let go of the lead.
They decided to help anchor eachother.


Which is very sensible, as it's very likely this will happen to anyone who tries to walk our dog:
                             
I was excited to take them all the the avenue of trees I had found the other week

and they liked walking down the aisle.


This was " the best walk ever" according to my girl, who was keen on the high mud factor.

It was messy, good, fun.


Nice, muddy and wet walk with a stop for scones, mac and cheese and canal boat watching before wandering home.
Perfect weekend day.
