As some of you know, we have a new member of the family, Izzy, a beautiful 1 year old Lurcher rescue...she's coming out of her shell a little more each day, trusting us a little more and finding her comfy places around the place. She's having a 'squirm up' on the rug behind me as I type, something she has only just started doing in the last 2 days or so...she plays when we aren't in the room now but does wag more and will occasionally even come up to us...yes, the people in her life before really did a number on her, poor thing, but we'll get her there...she can now go in the garden off lead and she's very good following me about and flopping down next to me. (they can jump fences easily so we needed to wait until she was happy being here until giving her more freedom!)
She's now bathed and groomed and has her proper Lurcher collar and tag in place! We're having some amazing early morning walks and I'm seeing wild flowers opening as the warmer weather has come this last few days, I've yet to take the camera as we're still mastering some training so I know I'd just get all tangled up :) she's a real blessing, I'm so glad we found her and she does make me laugh every day!
I've been really enjoying the coverage of the Chelsea flower show this week, the planting and designs are wonderful, then I go out to our garden which has a decidedly rural 'au naturale' look about it and potter about, it has been lovely out there this week...above is one of my Columbines that are just flowering now, I do love the fairy flowers :)
