Photos from my life during the lockdown Part 4
Since the UK is now under a travel restriction lockdown, I’m not able to travel to take photos for my clients. So I’m documenting my time, working and living, with photos I’ve taken from inside my home and in the garden and on my once-daily exercise, walking my dogs: Photos from inside a lockdown. This is Part 4. You can see Part 1 here, Part 2 here, Part 3 here, Part 5 here, Part 6 here, Part 7 here, Part 8 here, Part 9 here, Part 10 here, Part 11 here, Part 12 here, Part 13 here, Part 14 here.
The morning coffee is as important as always, and chores still need doing – the air plants need to be bathed in water and fertiliser. When you have many air plants the bath is the only place that can take them.
Life continues, with occasional reminders from the outside world of the seriousness of the situation for all of us, and a reminder of the reason that we’re all restricted in our daily activities, with most of us working from and staying at home.
The dogs are still getting more attention, with the warm spring weather keeping their coats clear of shedding fur is important to their comfort. They’re also fascinated by juggling balls bouncing around the lounge.
On my permitted once-daily exercise, I’m continuing to see, at a safe social-distance, other dog walkers – people I’ve known sometimes for years. This is Mary with Hamish and Patch.
I’m also fortunate living close to beautiful woodland where I exercise. Fiddle heads are opening, the cherry trees are blossoming above my head, with petals gently falling in the sunshine like unseasonable snow, and the wood anemones are in full bloom, carpeting the woodland floor.
And above our heads at night, the clear skies still dazzle with the beauty of the universe we live in. Cherish it – stay home, stay healthy and protect yourselves and everyone else.
