My Sunday Photo – May 20th, 2018.


My lovely dad was taken into hospital on Monday afternoon with suspected meningitis.

Freya and I rushed the 50 odd miles back to Ipswich that night and have been there all week, mostly going backwards and forwards to hospital several times a day. Thankfully, it wasn’t meningitis after all and he finally came home yesterday after being treated for pneumonia.

While he’s been away it was up to my mum and I to try and keep his beloved garden alive. As neither of us are green fingered, it has involved much Googling of things such as “do we need to water potatoes” (yes, yes you do). Aside from the pear tree which has been ravaged by marauding caterpillars, all seems well.

Freya has delighted in having a garden to play in and especially in being allowed to water the plants (and herself). We used quite a bit of the water which had collected in the water butts.


We left in such a hurry that I didn’t have time to pack my camera (or coats, socks and t-shirts for Freya) but I snapped these on my iPhone. The light in the evening was beautiful.

I hope you’ve all had a good week. To see what other people have submitted for My Sunday Photo click on the camera below.

Also, please pop back tomorrow to read my interview with the fabulous TV presenter and author Julia Roberts.

  1. Sorry to hear about your dad tara, that must have been a major worry but hope he recovers swiftly. At least the garden was in good hands. Love the shadow images. WOuld never have known they were camera phone pics.


  2. Hi Tara, thank goodness your Dad is okay and that it wasn’t meningitis. At least he won’t have to worry about his garden, Freya looks like she’s doing an admirable job. I like the use of the shadows to make an interesting photo.



    1. Thank you. Yes, I’m so impressed with the camera on the iPhone. Sometimes it takes better photos (or at least closer to what I want it to look like) that my big camera.


  3. Must have been a shock to hear your Dad’s news but kind of soothing to be able to help water the garden and experience some of the calm that comes with that task and knowing how much he loves it there


    1. It really was lovely and quite relaxing after the stress of going up and down the hospital. Freya loved getting wet too, lots of giggling.


  4. Very beautiful photos, I hope your dad is on the mend

    Have a good Sunday and thank you for linking up to #MySundayPhoto


  5. Oh my goodness that must have been so scary. I hope he’s recovering well and is back to his normal self very soon. It looks like Freya has done an excellent job of the garden 🙂
