Just around the corner from where I live, and I kind of do mean just around the corner, I could walk there in maybe 30 minutes, drive there in 10, there is the most amazing field I have ever set eyes on in my life. Every year in June and July, we are very lucky… Read More A very purple field
A bad week for the iMac and Photos behaving themselves. The new camera has been put to good use (it still doesn’t have a name though), but could I get them into my blog easily? No. I’ve had to upload them to photos, then copy and paste them to a folder on teh desk… Read More Geocaching and a few pictures of the garden
I was without a posh camera for a few weeks. The good news is that finally I have a new one – it’s a Canon 70D, and it makes a posh clicking noise when I take a photo! It’s got wifi to let me hopefully get on Instagram, but then I discovered that isn’t an… Read More Crochet, the camera and summer is finally in the garden!
I haven’t posted for a while. I’ve been super busy. The pinks ones 5th Birthday party was last weekend.

This week has had huge rain showers, interspersed with bright sunshine – but it’s still not warm! My garden knows it’s not warm enough either. None of the seeds I’ve planted out directly in… Read More A quick half an hour in the garden
Todays post was all planned in my head. A walk around St Pauls Cathedral in London finding Shaun the Sheep that we did a few days ago (that’ll now have to wait until another day). Then I looked out of the doors in a brief moment of sunshine and I had to share what I… Read More Sharing the tulip love!
Last year, after living in the same place for nearly 8 years, I discovered in a magazine (of all places) that we live pretty close to a bluebell wood! So as a lone bluebell has comer into flower in the garden we ventured out last weekend. I would of posted this last weekend however Apple and… Read More A bluebell wood anyone?
Back in October when I stupidly spent over £80 on bulbs to make my garden look pretty in spring – I thought it was a good idea. That was until I had to plant them! I’ve said before, and I’ll say it again – I officially hate planting bulbs…….BUT …… I love the results! To… Read More Tulips, tulips and a few more tulips……
I was emailing chatting to my new penpal in Australia, Louise from Red Haired Amazona, about flowers. She mentioned about a wavy flower, and while I love crocheting roses – I made a good few in the last couple of weeks so thought I’d try something new! I remember making a wavy flower by accident… Read More A Purple Wavy Flower
