IF WE WERE HAVING COFFEE: TROOPING OF THE COLOUR AND GARDENS

Hello  everyone  welcome  to  the garden  we have a marquee  and  heaters, all the garden  furniture  has  been washed  and  I have put out cushions for your  comfort.

Well what  do  you  think  shall  we  chance  it . Now  as  always  we have  tea  and coffee  from all over  the world not to mention all our cakes  and muffins  and  as Paul  calls  them sweets! Every single  one  is  calorie  free! Plus of course  we now have spirits  and liquors  to warm the coldest of  you.

If we were having  Coffee: I would ask  you what  has been going on in your world this week, has  anything  deeply affected  you, have  you need a sympathetic ear, a shoulder to cry  on or  just  needed someone  to make  you laugh! If  yes  feel free to talk it out  here  with us. We will all help if  we can.

If we were having Coffee: I would  remind  you  that  there  are lots of  other  coffee mornings  all shared  and organized  By  Diana  and  Gene’O  over at,Part time monster  

Okay  If  we  were  having  coffee : Lets  start  with yesterday  which  was  the Queen’s official  birthday ( unlike  us  mere  commoners  she has  at least  two!) Well in honur  of  this  event  there  is  the  pomp  and  cermony  that  is  know  as  the trooping  of  the  colours . Now  this  a great  spectical  even if  you are  not  a royalist  you have  to be in awe of  it!

The Queen has attended in a carriage rather than riding, which she did before that on 36 occasions, riding side-saddle and wearing the uniform of the regiment whose Colour was being trooped.  She  last  attended  on  a  horse  in  1987.The regiments take their turn for this honour in rotation as operational commitments permit. You  can read  all about  the Trooping of  the colour   here.

After  the  parade which  has  bands  mounted ( imagine  having  to read music, ride  your  horse  and keep he or /she in line  and pace  and  play an instrament  all at once!)  and on  foot. Horses, carriages,  horse  drawn  guns, and marching  men  and  all corographed  to  the enst !

After  the parade  there is a forty one  gun salute  in  Hyde Park,  they use  the guns  they use in the parade. All  these are  original  world  war one  guns  and one is  roumoured  to  be  the gun  which  fired  the  first  shell at  the  Battle of  the Somme.

Then  the  members of  the Royal  family  are  taken  back  to  Buckingham  Palace  to  appear  on  the balcany  all together  …. a  rare  occurance . All the  spectators  surge up  the Mall and  congregate  outside  Buckingham Place  to  get a glimpse of  the Royals  and to wave  and celebrate….. it’s  not just  us  brits  people  come  from all over  the world!

Righ  Photos  and videos?

And  here  is  a video  that  catches  the  feel of  the day !

OH! If  we  were having  coffee :  After  all my  jabbering on  about  the  trooping  of  the colour  ( it  was  the  Welsh  Guards  this  year) You  must  be  gagging  for  another  cuppa  and  a cake!! I  am forgetting  my  manners  sorry!

Let us  have  a quick  look around  the  garden  nothing  much  has  changed  except everything  has  got  bigger. Mind  you  the  white  rose  tree is  looking glorious!I  think  all our  roses  are  magnificent  if  I  say  so  myself  though  Tangental  could  out  rose  us  ( ceck it out)   with his  garden!!

And the Pink

Well the  weather has been a mixture  this  week, more  coffee  anyone? We  have  had  all four  seasons, pelting  rain  cold  winds, frost  over night  and and  glorious  heat wave ( well for us that is ) weather!

If we were having  coffee: Shall  we  all go  across  and  see Paul  and  all his  guests ,  we need  to  encourage  Paul  to  start  writing  a  book  about  the  nitty  gritty  of  dialysis and  all the  wonderful  little incites  he  gives us  weekly  of  his treatment  highs  and lows. It  would  be  a great  help  to many  even those  who  are not even going through  treatment! Also  all the lovely  little assides  of  people  he meets  while  at  the hospital …come  one lets  twist his arm , gently of  course!

Once  again I  thank  you  all for  visiting  me  and Paul  too  we love to  see you  and hear  what  you have to say  and  we hope  you will join us again next  week! Hugs  to you  all!

Do  all stay  and  be comfortable   we love  to see  you  all.

And of course  the
