Wow! Very pretty colors. I want to go to Scotland now.
I wish my ordinary days were as nice as that!
Lovely book, lovely pictures and Bruce is sooo handsome. I always want to hug his neck
Thank you for sharing.
Thank you for that peaceful and lovely bit of pleasure!
Thank you for the lovely photos…..it’s been so dry here we’re not seeing so many pretty colors this summer.
Your flowers are beautiful but we love Bruce more. Annie and Arlo, the yellow labs.
These dogs are soooo cute – including Bruce ;-)
Don’t forget nice time peacefully knitting!! X
Your ordinary day has made my ordinary day just that much brighter!
I LOVE an ordinary day! and Orange poppies and Purple thistles. The only problem with thistles is…………they won’t last in a bouquet, they wilt, at least the variety i used. After all the chat re Yorkshire tea i ordered some, we’ll see…..
love those flower pictures they made me smile.
I just lost my mom and am feeling very odd-there is a huge hole in my life. I never knew it would be this hard.
Bruce always makes me smile too.
Pam, I’m so very sorry to hear your sad news. Thinking of you, and sending a hug from Edinburgh. x
thank you Kate for your kind thoughts-maybe someday I will get to Edinburgh-it’s on my “bucket list”. Family coming today and tomorrow for memorial service on Sat. Last night my dad and I went out to dinner alone and drove around one side of our beautiful lake reminiscing about Mom. He is very lonely-almost 91 and mom and he were married 65 yrs. He is also in wonderful shape(hope I can keep him that way for awhile)..
what program do you use for design?
I would like to know which knitware design program you use too, Kate. Thanks for the lovely photographs.
I have exactly the same question – hope you don’t mind!
The flowers are so bright and colorful! Thanks as always for the great pictures. An ordinary day looks pretty amazing.
Finally, your much-needed, long-overdue, ordinary day with no drama! Thank you for sharing it with all of us too.
What heart zinging flower photos. Thank you.
Amazing wild flowers! And obviously a bog ‘ole tease with the mysterious Shetland Wool bag ;-)
that should be ‘big’… ‘big’… not ‘bog’ – ahem…
“Stedfastgate”! (smile) – thank you for some stunning summery colours to brighten my day.
The orange/purple/yellow flowers are begging to be a color scheme in one of your future sweaters. I love Bruce’s ears a-flop as he’s galloping with his blue ball. Happy Precious!!
I expect to see a mini fleecey Bruce running around your blog very soon. Big grin. Beautiful photos as always. What a splendidly ordinary day. :) x
The flowers are lovely.
Thank you for sharing such lovely and vibrant photos. Our drought has removed all life and color from outside so I love seeing pictures that give me hope that, should rain return to us, color will return as well. Beautiful.
Very fun post! Lovely photography! If you shot these, congrat’s! If not, thanks for sharing the views of your beautiful world!
Love the flowers. I have the book and a Wire Fox Terrier both real (Spike) and now needle felted!
Bruce is such an “old soul.” Good to have him looking after you. :)
I got my Sheep Carousel kit from the woolbrokers today. Thanks for Kate Davies Designs bag as well. I will carry it with pride.

Ordinary days. Many times the best ones.
I wish my two girls (dogs) could meet Bruce they would a wonderful time together. Thanks for your wonderful photos and blog!
Hey Bruce – Watch out – I think You Know Who is going to replace you with a Woolly Bruce….. be on your guard. It seems to have given my You Know Who ideas too!!! Very cold this morning OoC – I am not going for a walk whatever they say! Love Bruce x
Oops! Love from Woody x
Bruce looks far too happy about a walk. I do wonder, is there a wooly Bruce in the near future?
What beautiful pictures as always. They really are worth a thousand words – the sense of tranquility I now have from looking at them will get me through at least this morning! :-)
Uh, the real one, not the fleece!!
These pictures were a treat! Thank you for sharing them.
Good, Kate – an ordinary day sounds very appealing to me at the moment. Nice to revel and appreciate the ordinary, isn’t it.
Good Morning, As a wee Scotty myself many years removed I had forgotten the beauty of the wildflowers in Scotland and the gifts the damp climate brings us. as a human being struggling to make sense of this world the comments on this blog and the heartfelt caring they convey boosts my faith in the total goodness of human kind:).
Thank you one and all.
What fabulous flowers… it’s amazing that what you think will jar, works so well in nature :)
teapot envy! Damn, that tea looks good!
Oooooh – such beautiful photos!
A beautiful photographic essay and a lesson in finding the beauty and joy in everyday moments. I found this post unexpectedly moving. Thank you.
Thank you Kate for all the photos. But especially for the cornflower, my favourite, I used to see it in fields but never now,and it is such a heavenly blue. Hope Bruce is better now x
Do I spot a bee house teapot? I love those!
