Sunday Sevens 2019 #4

Welcome to my Sunday Sevens : A post were I share seven (or so) photos of my week away from the blog. Sunday Sevens was invented by Nathalie at Thread and Bobbins.

Last Sunday we went to the Cornwall and Devon Golden Retrievers annual Valentines meet up. 168 golden retrievers on a beach and not a single cross word between them!

We dropped into a pub on the way home for fish and chips – well we were at the seaside.20190214_130559

Back at home Harry’s been having lots of walks with his non retriever friends. I keep forgetting to take pics, but I did remember to take one of him with his friend Nell.


Harry’s also been helping me in the garden…

…where a few more plants are attempting to flower, but still very little to see.

Next door the sheep have been entertaining us as they play king of the castle on their hay bale.



The weather’s been spring-like all week, but on Saturday it was warm enough for breakfast in garden.


After breakfast we went for walk along the banks of the river Taw from Sticklepath to Belstone.



We had a walk around the village at Belstone…


… where I spotted this pretty thermometer…


…and this rather unusual inhabitant…


When we walked back to Sticklepath I spotted this camellia a in full bloom – clearly they’ve had warmer weather when you compare it to the picture of mine above…


Our walk ended at the Taw River Inn were I had fish cakes, chips and proper peas…


Hope you’ve had a great week. Until next time,

  1. Proper peas! Much better than mushy. ๐Ÿ™‚
    Wow, I love the retrievers meet up. How wonderful. Harry must have loved it. Harry’s friend Nell looks a beauty too. Having Spring weather up North too. Saw lots of daisies, celandines and crocuses, gorse etc. That Camelia is stunning. X

    1. The retriever meetup was really lovely, we’re definitely going to go to some more. Oh yes, Nell is absolutely gorgeous. Sounds like you’re doing better than us with your blooming flowers – the weather is fabulous! ๐Ÿ™‚


  2. Wow – that’s a lot of wet retrievers – bet Harry had a wonderful time. Like the pictures of the village especially the camellia – mine hasn’t even buddied yet, even though we are having a lovely warm spell at the moment. Keep enjoying life and proper peas!

  3. A wonderful week, and it is looking so stunning out there. I love your garden, it looks perfect. Your walks are so beautiful, and so very much to see and take in. Absolutely amazing. The fish cakes looks delicious. ๐Ÿ™‚
    Have a good week and enjoy the good weather.


  4. Just got back to la belle France but I have properly gorged on fish and chips which should keep me going until my next visit.
    The golden retrievers in the waves made me laugh – it brought to mind that advert Guinness where all the waves turn into horses, only not quite so dramatic.
