The garden is continuing to bloom... I think helped along quite a bit by the huge amount of rain water that has been falling onto the flower beds over the last few weeks!
Even if there hasn't been a lot of sunshine lately.. at least this photo looks bright and cheery!
Some of my pink Cosmo's have begun to flower. These flowers have come from my Nan's garden, she brought some up with her when she helped me to sort out my garden and they were one of the flowers that we had at our wedding. Nan did all of the flower arrangements and bouquets for our wedding and she saved some of the seeds from then and grew them on again. It feels quite special to know that this flower comes from the seeds of the flowers I had in my wedding bouquet.
My Lupin plant has begun to flower..! :-) I was so so chuffed when I noticed the flowering part of the plant growing taller and taller.. it looks so impressive in front of all the greenery behind it.
The other day I was saying how I've been potting up my new pots in the garden that were given to me, well here you go..! They're still pretty 'green' looking at the moment, but it won't be long before the plants are looking a bit more perky and start to flower. I can't wait..! I probably sound a little sad... how I get so excited over just plants!
I forgot to include this photo in my last post.. It's from when we went down to meet up with Mum, three generations together.. there would be four, but Nan was taking the photo. She's at Glastonbury at the moment, working as a nurse. I find myself feeling a little jealous as I've been a couple time before and absolutely loved it. But obviously having Rose now.. it wouldn't be the same, and I can watch it all on telly, in the comfort of my own front room!
(Edited to say - I meant my Mum was at Glastonbury, not my Nan! haha)
Ray has had his first Father's Day! He had been working long hours and so had forgotten that it was Father's Day that morning.. so was pleasantly surprised when he went in to get Rose and found a card and present laying next to her. She's obviously very advanced for her age.. being able to go shopping and write in a card already!! (I apologise for the dodgy t-shirt... it didn't come from me!)
A very happy girl..!
I had my first trip to Hobbycraft yesterday! I needed to get a frame and mount for my Nan's birthday gift, but I couldn't find what I needed so I think I'm going to have to start all over! I've done some embroidery to put in a frame but it's on too smaller piece of fabric now and doesn't fit inside the mount. I'm not overly keen on it anyway, so I don't really mind starting again. Although I'm seeing her on Saturday and supposed to be giving it to her then.. somehow I think it may be a few day's late and have to be sent to her in the post..!
But look at all of the colours! I couldn't resist taking some photo's.. so pretty!
A whole aisle of craft books.... heaven!! I did manage to resist buying any more though, as I really do have quite a few to be getting on with anyway!
Rose has been napping upstairs the whole time I've put this post together... It's Sooooo lovely to have to quiet time to myself..!! Now... time to get on with the housework..!
I got all excited about the prospect of wearing a summer dress today as it was so so sunny this morning here, but yet again... it started to rain. When will the summer really arrive...!? I think we're definitely deserving of a heat wave sometime soon!
