We've been having suchhh a lovely time so far.. The ferry trip over went smoothly and whilst we were making our way to the self catering cottage, we had a nice drive around half the Island on our first afternoon here. So many pretty hills and we were never very far away from the sea. : )
And... because I have Ray here to help with the looking after of Rose, I've been able to have a Lot of hooky time. I'm nearly finished on one WIP which is going to be a Mother's day gift for my Mum, I'll have to pop in the post pretty much as soon as we're back from here..! I'll show you a photo of it finished when Mother's day has come and gone..!
..and a field FULL of daisies..! There were hundreds of them. So of course I couldn't resist taking some photo's of course... : )
As we carried along around the coast path we came across the Botanical Gardens, so there were many
more opportunities to take some pretty photo's. We have been just so lucky with the amazing sunshine!
I think the above flowers are called Chionodoxa forbesii (Glory of the Snow)..?! Well I found a picture online that looks very similar indeed.. so I think I must be right..! I'm really awful at remembering the names of different flowers.. Most of the women in my family have a talent for this.. but not me I'm afraid..! Does anyone know if that's the right name for those flowers..?
Isn't the colour of these Hyacynth flowers just incredible, so bright and eye-catching. A treat for the eyes indeed..!
