Hello! Here's a snapshot of my half-term week so far. We've had a quiet, lazy couple of days; I have been resting my foot and doing a bit of pottering, and D and I have spent as much time as possible in the garden as the weather's been lovely. We've been :
eating ice lollies
trying rosehip drinks (delicious!)
and eating strawberries - yum!
And I've been relaxing with some crochet
repairing my rather faded peg-bag which I made a couple of years ago
smelling the sweet honeysuckle, which is the best it's ever been
taking photos of creatures, here a huge furry bumblebee ...
and here a shiny-backed ladybird
enjoying our verbascum's first ever flowers, at long last
smelling the French lavender with its elongated purple bracts
loving the way that Oriental poppy buds open, revealing a flash of bright, crinkly petals
marvelling at the delicate streaked markings on these morning glories
and feeling glad I grew this honesty plant - I'm looking forward to its pretty dried seed-heads.
It sounds like the weather's about to become more changeable, so I'm glad we've had so much time outside. It definitely feels as if I've recharged my batteries, and it's been lovely to have the time to post as well as keep up with all my favourite blogs.
Hope you've been able to get out and about this week and enjoy a bit of sunshine x
