a peek at Sea House....

this weekend we spent a very long time inside Sea House - saw, hammer, broom....

it now feels more like home - take a peek at the first tour of Sea House .... here


i also started a little gardening - something that i have been putting off as it just seems like such an enormous task

i have spent the last 14 years tending to a tiny cottage garden in Kent - the expanse of field we have now just seems way too much to ever feel like a garden

we shall see - i have lots of thoughts and designs of how i would like it to look......


the joy of gardening here, even if it was just a little grass cutting and filling a raised bed with manure (thanks to the gallant efforts of Woody and Dillon), is when you turn around and see this......


a full rainbow


from the start......




to the middle......




to the end....




truly breathtaking

Isn't it great when you get to see the whole rainbow. You'll obviously see loads there but those of us 'down south' only get to see the complete thing once in a while.

Tracy, Sea House is FAB!!!! Oh I have huge envy now, but how lovely to imagine you and your lovely animals living in such a breathtaking place. And camping in it this weekend really does make it seem you are almost there xx

They are amazing aren't they! Nothing to spoil your view. The garden will come, don't take on too much in one go, but it will get there!

Hello! What a lovely blog you have. Firstly, I LOVE the animals and I am rather envious of your menagerie! Our very small garden just couldn't house all those lovelies, so I have my two spoilt cats. Also, I loved reading about the Sea House - a dream come true (eventually!) - and I look forward to reading more about it. Your crafting is delightful too - Good Luck with your adventures and hold onto that rainbow image - a sign of promise for the future! Best wishes. Denise

The SeaHouse is coming on a treat........Envy down here!
It must be really satisfying collecting your own manure, I reckon you will have a bumper crop of veg next year! Enjoy.

There's just something about rainbows... Good old Wordsworth summed it up in about the only poem I ever bothered learning, "My heart leaps up when I behold a rainbow in the sky..."
