MY DIDDY STUDIO

What a difference a few weeks make.  This is our conservatory now rebuilt and showing my own little corner.  I overlook bird feeders and used to overlook the dreaded Leylandi trees that for years have depressed me, just a few feet from the window and so high as to block out our light. Unexpectedly the neighbour has chopped them down, for his own reason and not because we asked him (I had in the past).  Whatever the reason I am over the moon.  I can't explain to you what a difference it will make.
I can see the sky .......... we will have the sun in our garden all afternoon and into the evening.  For 2 days thick white smoke has been blowing our way, and I have been burning candles to mask the smell of the burning in the house.  But I don't care about the burning, the trees are gone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!   WOW

  3. I can understand, majestic trees planted too close to homes,
      condemned to stay in the  darkness, who lives there.
    So dear Polly, happy painting in the joyful light!

  4. all that talk of white smoke, I thought for a minute the new Pope had been elected ..... where exactly is it you live???

    I couldn't bear to live in a 'dark' house so can understand your joy now the Leylandi have gone

    1. Don't live in Rome! So the people next door are not electing the Pope! I live on the outskirts of Southport, which is near Liverpool. You southerners may not know it. It's a Victorian seaside resort.

  9. I can fully follow you. My little city garden is totally dominated by a huge Acer growing in the neighbors garden and we have shadow all the summer...would so much love to have some sunshine so I could grow lots of roses ! I am glad you finally saw the light :-)))

    1. Why do people not think of how their garden affects their neighbours. Some people are so selfish. I feel for you and hope that some day soon you will have the luck that I have! :)

  10. What a wonderful place to sit and paint - I've had the opposite problem to you - my next door has cut his trees and bushes back and I didn't want him to because that's where the garden birds were perching to visit my feeders - now they don't visit :-( ! I've nominated your blog for an award, take a look at my latest post x

  14. Great little artist's corner, Polly. Very inviting! looks a lot like my corner, view 'n' all...except my table is wobbly and in need of a spring clean.
    Congrats on being nominated for a blog award, Polly.
    Mike.

    1. The light is lovely and sometimes I have music on and other times just listen to the birds at the feeder station. As for the award, yes really pleased, but if it wasnt for people visiting it wouldn't be so much fun! So thanks for popping over.
