So...apologies that I haven't been around for such a long time. I won't bore you with a rundown of my summer to date, but here's a peak into some of the things I've been up to,
...Rather a lot of work (but no more about that!)
...Days out with the family - I love this photo of my niece Tilly's feet!
...Pottering in the garden and on the allotment, and picking little bunches of flowers after a long day at work (oops I mentioned the W word again!)
...Trips to the seaside. Look at those gorgeous colour combinations - inspiration comes from surprising places!
...and long evenings wandering along the beach
...Visits to gardens - yet more inspiration!
...Including the late Geoff Hamilton's garden, Barnsdale Gardens, in Rutland,
...there are around 40 little gardens in all shapes, styles and sizes that were originally designed for the TV show, Gardener's World - packed full of ideas to steal (and plenty of bumble bees!)
...A trip to Fez, Morocco with Mr T
The ancient medina is full of stunning buildings and little architectural details
...and finally, I spent Saturday making a new batch of felted bowls. My absolute favourite thing to make - I love the way the fibres yield under the felting needle to slowly form the nest-like shape. It's a very relaxing process,
It's back to work tomorrow, but then a Bank Holiday is only just round the corner!
