where did june go to

Well June disappeared very quickly…….didn’t it!

Gone in a flash and July already.

The garden is doing it’s own thing, it’s the time of year where you can mostly just sit back and enjoy it.

And it’s not just enjoying the flowers at the moment either as the strawberries are coming thick and fast.

Home grown, organic, no air miles….and sweet as honey.

We took ourselves off for a little holiday at the beginning of the month as well…to the very beautiful south of France, we had a wonderful time as we always do in this lovely part of the world.

There has been some crafting during June too, with two cardies for my girl!

And of course some little animals too.

This is Provence inspired by my holiday.

Rosette celebrating all the beautiful roses in bloom at the moment.

A little nautical fox called Flare with her own seagull!!

And finally Hollyhocks, unfortunately my own hollyhocks aren’t in bloom yet unlike those on Hollyhocks the hare’s dress.

I will be listing all these girls in my Etsy shop on Wednesday 5th July at 7pm (BST).

So here we are in July, wishing you all a wonderful one.

Thank as always for dropping by!

merry may

Awe isn’t May just the most beautiful, greenest month of the year….I’m so sorry that it’s almost at an end!

The garden has been doing it’s own beautiful thing!

New blooms are appearing all the time.

I could just spend all of my time outside especially in all this lovely weather we have been having.

We had a lovely celebration during the month when our little granddaughter turned one…still hard to believe….we had a fun time partying and Amelie enjoyed every second of it and took it all in!

One of our outings during May was to Garden Show Ireland, such a lovely day out and very inspiring too.

I have just finished a little group of May girls, who I will be listing in my Etsy shop on Sunday 28th May at 7pm (BST).

More information about them can be found here and more photos here.

What a lovely month May has been, I really can’t believe we are heading into the 6th month of the year already!!

Thanks as always for dropping by and for the lovely comments you leave….have a wonderful June! 🙂

so that was march!

So another month has passed and I have to say I’m always sorry to say goodbye to March, I love spring and if I could pause the year I would do so now.

The garden is springing into life and I love it!

We have enjoyed some lovely walks in our local park too.

There has been lots of knitting during the month and we’ve celebrated a birthday and Mothers Day.

We had a little trip to lovely Edinburgh during the month as well.

And when there I got to visit the Edinburgh Yarn Festival, wow that was good, all that gorgeous yarn and talented designers and I may have made a few purchases to feed my yarn addiction!

So March you have been so very lovely and I am sorry you’re over.

Just before I go I’d like to share four more little animals with you that I will be listing in my Etsy shop on Sunday 2nd April at 7.30pm, more images can be found here and more info here.

Thanks as always for dropping by…..happy April!! 🙂
