A celebration on Sale Fell

Wasn’t this meant to be a gardening blog?  Life has taken a detour and my time is currently divided between walking with Daisy, messing around in the sewing room (but not managing to finish any quilts) and not much else.  Even when it's not raining the ground is so completely sodden and saturated that working outside isn’t particularly enjoyable so I’ve stopped doing it.  I still care DEEPLY about the garden, but right now it’s not the end of the world if I ignore it for a few weeks.  For the present, Bag End seems to be a dog-blog.



Little Miss Perfect gets star billing today because exactly two years ago I drove down the M6 in torrential rain with wicked side wind (lovely at Shap summit …. not!) to collect a skinny, scared, half-starved, not very pretty, Long Eared Dog.  Where has the time gone?  We had a lovely stroll around Sale Fell this morning to celebrate, it's one of Madam's favourite places and there is always whippety racing and tail chasing.









With high cloud and flat light conditions weren't ideal for decent pictures, so here's a couple of favourites from the past.





    once again, huge thanks to Jill for this one :}




You've come a long way baby :}





We've had our afternoon walk, so it's now time for Staff to light the wood burner for Her Ladyship.

  1. Has it really been two years. She has come along way and is adorable. Yes, the garden can wait, as there will be sunny days and the next thing, Spring will be around the corner in no time at all. I can't believe it is nearly Xmas and another year gone. Take care.

  4. It's been great to have shared the transformation if Daisy Having met her was even better,
    I think winter us designed as a gardening break - it helps is charge up the batteries and gave time doing other things.

    The blog belongs to you and should reflect that that you are a multifaceted personality

    1. Thanks Jill. In truth I don't so much object to having my photo taken, it's looking at the Quasimodo-like results that bothers me! Please come back to take more photos of Daisy and me . . .

  7. Nothing at all wrong with a dog blog, especially when the dog in question is Daisy. She's come on leaps and bounds, in more ways than one. I think the eyes tell it all with dogs, they're soulless in her rescue photo but full of love and joy nowadays and she's got a beautiful coat, testament to the way she's been nursed back to health and the fabulous care she now receives.
