Late Spring














The garden is blossoming, every time I step out of the front door the alchemilla mollis has grown!  I planted some alliums in amongst it and the lavender which has almost worked... a few more needed I think.

I love what I do, I am so grateful to be able to be at home, creating.  I know it wouldn't suit everyone, but finally I have found what I should be doing (after too many jobs to list). But, and it is a small but, I don't like having to work out of season.  Yesterday I was sitting in the garden, under the wysteria, bees buzzing and sewing the first of my Christmas reindeer garlands!  I know it seems ridiculous, but 5 months of the year have gone already, so I really need to get on with them in among the other orders, so with all the summery photos above you may see an odd one out!

We had a lovely stroll and coffee at the beach this morning, while I coveted the beach huts, I'll have to make do with my beach hut garland for the time being! Hope you are enjoying a sunny Sunday wherever you are x

The last of our Dales photos I promise!  It has been such a lovely week, which has gone far too quickly.  We have relaxed and recharged, without realising how much we needed it.  Elderly parent worries, children and just everyday living sometimes take over and it was just what we needed to stop and breathe... x
