Wool, Wiltshire and All Manner of Wonderful Things!

Life is getting better.

The sun has been shining, there have been warm days and cold days (even the odd flurry of snow), Easter brought family and chocolate, and the roadmap out of lockdown proceeds slowly.

A walk by a lake.

and by a river.

Blackthorn blossom.

The church was open for private prayer on Good Friday, and it’s as lovely inside as well as out. The Vicar and Churchwarden were very welcoming. So happy I finally made it inside. Sunday services resume next week.

I explored this little path from the church which took me a new to me way home.

The forlorn patch is getting better- bulbs and wall flowers I planted in the Autumn.

And lovely daffodils for Easter.

Light at the end of the tunnel.

I hope life is getting better for you too, and you have experienced joy this Easter.

    Hope you had a lovey Easter. Lovely to see the flowers in your garden.

  2. What happy colors growing in your little bulb garden! So glad you were able to get inside your new church, and better yet, the staff so welcoming, it’s all good. Enjoy next Sunday!

  3. Glad to hear you have had a good Easter. I always feel perkier in the spring, but this year it’s especially good to see the weather improve and facilitate some outdoor socialising, isn’t it? Add to that the fact that Mr Snail and I have now both had our first vaccinations (mine 9 days early because they did me at the same time as him, as they had enough vaccine available when I dropped him off at the mass vac centre) and it feels like this year might be a bit better than last.

    • Getting a vaccination is quite a marvellous feeling. We await the date for our second dose. Not that it will change my behaviour, it’s just the feeling of light at the end of the tunnel.

  4. A lovely insight into your walks and thoughts about the slow opening up after full lockdown. It does feel slow here too but Spring like weather it feels a little chirpy and hopefully those flurries of snow were just passing by as a swansong to the winter!

  5. My Easter was quiet, I’m still hobbling and can’t drive yet, but I have the consolations of books and sewing so all is not too grim. Also, I’m greatly looking forward to the more moderate temperatures of autumn and long walks!

  6. Your flowers are just gorgeous – spring is really springing! Glad Easter was good, with family and a church visit as well πŸ™‚

  7. Your post made me smile, glad life is getting better!

  8. Your bulbs and wallflowers look lovely. And I am always happy to see white blackthorn blossom, it is so striking. πŸ™‚

  9. Your Forlorn Patch will soon need renaming!

  10. Your post brought a smile to my face, With Spring brings new life for the future. Thank you

  11. I got very excited for the delivery of my garden waste bin from the council. I had a lovely chat with the friendly guy who delivered it. Its amazing how the little things are so big. I have written in my diary the day we can book a browsing session in the library. As for the church I was there one minute after they opened. And the census form filling made a Sunday! Needless to say I am now counting the sleeps to hairdresser day. 5!

  12. I am happy to read this post. It does feel like things are getting better and the blue skies are very welcome.

  13. The forlorn patch is looking quite cheerful. Easter really does feel more symbolic of hope and rebirth than normal doesn’t it? X

    • Oh yes, when I think back to last year when some police forces deemed Easter eggs non essential shopping, and I felt very daring buying them!

  14. A post filled to the brim with hope. Better days are in the offing. Happy Easter!

  15. It sure looks like spring in your corner of the world:) Watching nature come to life is great for the soul.

    so pleased to hear you were finally able to have a look inside the church ^^

    • It is so pretty, a real village church with some lovely stained glass. Hopefully I. will be able to take some photos oneday.

  17. Such pretty photos, love your walks and the blackthorn blossom and the bulbs coming up in your garden.
    Take care, Cathy πŸ™‚

  18. Flowers coming up in the garden and at last an open church! Wonderful.

  19. Yes! I have managed to get a hairdresser’s appointment – albeit not until the 27th as I’m new to the area and they’re understandably booking in a their existing clients first – but, steady on, too much excitement in one day has made me go a bit dizzy.
    Long may the optimism continue.
