We've been enjoying some beautiful, hot and sunny weather and my roses have started to bloom in the garden. We have two of these patio roses but only this pink one is flowering. Of our two climbing roses only mine with the deep red flowers is in bloom but hubby's yellow roses which are more in the shade won't be too far behind.
It's been lovely either sitting outside in the garden or playing outdoors with Tilly. She absolutely loves jumping up and getting soaked while I'm using the hosepipe to water the plants. That really is a very wet Tilly and the other silhouettes are me and a different shrub.
On Friday we did something entirely different and went for a walk around the lake but not all the way round as that is far too far for us to walk in this heat. There were more visitors than we had anticipated but it was nice to see so many families with children fishing for crabs and we heard one little boy announce he'd caught a jellyfish.
I had a nice conversation with a lady who had a friendly five month old Cavapoo and I could have chatted with her for hours. Her young pup was just four days younger than Tilly but bigger than Tilly. Tilly is quite nervous of other dogs but that pup was quite calm. The lady told me her pup goes to doggy day care while she is at work so is used to socialising with other dogs which I now think is what is needed for Tilly. Also her dog had been groomed because apparently she had looked like she'd been dragged through a hedge backwards. I'd already booked Tilly in for another shampoo, blowdry and comb through for this week even though it is only four weeks since her last visit. Our groomers won't give her a complete trim until she's six months old so hopefully this week's planned visit will get her used to the place and the people before the big event.
While we were at the lake we decided we would take a ride on the miniature railway and you can read all about it here. I didn't manage to take a photo of the actual train but here's Tilly in the station, ignore the time on the clock as it's wrong. She really did enjoy the ride with the breeze blowing through her fur.
