Some photos....

You will be delighted to know that my son has shoes for his feet. He will not be roaming the Alps with holes in his shoes any longer. A trip down the mountain sorted that one. He helped his uncle all morning and then was put to work mowing the lawn in circles this afternoon. He has now taken possession of the remote control and no-one is going to argue with that. He has been a star, as I have said many times before!


Well, I tried to write captions under the photos, and Blogger was very accommodating. It deleted the photos. So the first five photos are from the walk yesterday, and the last one are from the garden this afternoon. Marge has worked very hard on her garden and it is stunning. That is a photo of her filling one of the 79 million watering cans we filled to feed it all. It is very big. I was very helpful. I sat on a chair and filled the watering cans with the hosepipe. There is David mowing the circles. And how is that for a stunning view from the garden? I never get tired of it. The last photo is from her balcony, from under a straw sunshade I was holding. Geraniums are so Swiss. All the balconies , or most of them at least, have masses of geraniums growing in window baskets, and it looks so pretty.

Now I need to find some coffee. Yet another beautiful day is nearly over. I hope the sun is shining on all of you too!

Fabulous photos. So glad David has good shoes! Living in the shadow of the mountains is such a privilege.

We are actually under clouds this afternoon and have had a bit of a shower. It is so good for our land that has been so dry for so many years. It is cool and refeshing.

I'm so glad to see the absolute beauty you're enjoying. What a view!

I'm also glad to hear that you sat in a chair and filled the watering cans. That gives me hope for the future of pacing. :>)

Glad your son was able to find size 14 shoes. Whew!!!

Beautiful pictures. Glad you took it easy with the watering...and were able to find shoes for your son.

Have a great evening.

It's so beautiful!! Your pictures are gorgeous too. I can just imagine you basking in the beauty, surrounded by your family. It's such a great summer activity, I think - perfect for your soul, right?!! Enjoy every minute!

Is there a nice way to say I'm so jealous I could gnaw on my socks? It's gorgeous, Linds! Enjoy your time there.

So glad you are having a great time. We drove home yesterday in beautiful weather and today is cloudy & grey in Zurich. But I figure it will be a good one for getting some of the yard cleaned up. Glad your son was able to get shoes - no fun when you want to scramble around on the mountains. And my regards to Marge, hope Peter is recovering well and her garden IS beautiful. I love those chairs peeking out of the background. Best Wishes - How long in CH?

Oh Linds, I would never tire of scenes such as these either. Breathtaking...

I am so glad you have this time there. Thanks for sharing the photos with us!

Vee said...

Thank you for being tenacious in getting these marvelous photos back on. I'm going back to take a closer look at them all. You're in such a beautiful spot on this earth, Linds. Glad that you are being of service with the filling of water cans and also glad that the boy has new shoes.

Linda said...

It really doesn't matter which pictures you post - they are all amazing! It is such a beautiful place Linds. I am so happy you are able to spend time there.
Filling watering cans is an important job!

Weather report from Edinburgh: warmish and brightish. Not quite the same! Glad you're having a lovely time.

Well, if anyone ever asks me if the cool mountain air really can cure one's ills...I think you are a testimony to that fact. Of course, your CRP is not cured, but your mind is at rest, you have purpose there, you are contributing to the well being of others. You are amazing and inspirational! God bless you as you continue in your life's journey. Vicky from East Texas

What fabulous pictures! I'm living your trip vicariously, since it seems totally unlikely that we will ever travel abroad. Thanks for sharing!
