A garden of Eden.....

I took the boys to my parents' home yesterday, for the day, to get them out of Hubs hair. He was wanting to get some painting done and who am I to stop him! (better him than me.)
(If you have follwed my blog for a while you will know that I have done my fair share of painting this house, now it's his turn)
 Mum cooked a yummy lamb roast and self saucing chocolate pudding, how lucky were we!
Hubs didn't miss out entirely, Mum was kind enough to do up a plate to take home for his dinner!
Their garden is like a paradise at the moment, everything is in bloom.....
 Irises are my favourite flower along with pink roses...
 There are so many things to look at in their garden. Dad makes these birds from timber and he also did these stone sculptures by the bird bath!
The boys love it here, there are so many places to explore and hide out!
Mum works tirelessly in the garden doing something everyday, and it shows.
It is a real credit to her. I wonder where my green thumb is.....?
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend, Kathryn. XX
