Down a Suffolk lane.........

 on the last day of will find ........

 Our house at the far end, you can just see the chimney

The base of the pump that would have served the three cottages in our lane before mains water
Daffodils and primroses still looking good

 One solitary Cowslip plant

We used to call these Five Fingers although their proper name is Oxslips.........I think!

 The bird feeders in our front garden

 The sign showing the path across our meadow

There is frogspawn and a dozen frogs but not easy to photograph

Wild  plum or cherry or something!

I'm going to try and remember to do this on the last day of each month

 Back Soon

PS. Hospital news.... still OK no nasty side effects so far. 8 hourly blood tests and continuous saline drip, measuring it in and out! Off to see him later.


  1. Thank you for that lovely look down your lane this morning.
    It looks a really peaceful place.
    Give my good wishes to Col when you see him later-x-

  2. Lovely photos, what a good idea to do it every month, will be good to see the plants changing with the seasons. Hope you find Col looking and feeling good.

  3. Looks a very peaceful place to reside. Have sown some cowslip seeds, no sign of germination yet.

  4. I love your little lane and the old pump, I would like to make it into a feature :-) pleased to hear everything is good at the hospital.

  5. Peaceful little lane to wander down and gather one's thoughts. Glad the news with Col is good.

  6. Oh what a pretty spot you've landed in...fingers crossed everything stays going the right way.

  7. Lovely photographs and a good way to mark the changes. Thank you for the update on Col. Love to you both. X

  8. You live in a very peaceful spot. Positive news so far from Col's treatment, so let's hope it stays that way and works.

  9. Idylic, what a great place to live.

  10. Is the pump near to your garden? It looks in need of some kind attention. A beautiful piece of history with a story to tell.

    Grateful NOT to have to carry all the water we use in buckets. Just the grey around our garden.

  11. Glad to hear no nasty side effects so far, hope that continues. Lovely pics!

  12. Dear Sue:

    Nice to see photos of your lane, so pretty. Is the lane dead end or carries on? Have you seen the public footpath in use by anyone?

    Safe journey to visit Colin and prayers for a good outcome.


  13. You chose a beautiful place to live.
    Sending best wishes to Col, and to you.

  14. What a pretty little part of the world you live in! Hope the good news from the hospital continues.


  15. You really do live at the end of a lane! Good on you for carrying on and keeping yourself busy, I'm sure it's exactly what Col would want you to do. Great news that all seems to be going well with the Col's treatement. xx

  16. I don't know how you found such a perfect location but it is superb!!

  17. Thank you for the mention of Oxlips. I'm quite sure that I've always assumed it's been Cowslips I've been looking at. I shall look more carefully from now on!

  18. I love your lane, it looks like a lovely place to live. A walk around your property must be wonderful no matter the season. I look forward to seeing the changes each month. It is great to hear the Col is doing well.

  19. Your lane is so pretty!!

    Great that there have been no adverse side affects so far.

    God bless.

  20. Wonderful photos of your Suffolk lane. Thanks so much for reminding me home.
