Isn't it time?
I have been finding things a little odd here just lately as the weekends have felt so holidayish. Lazy days drift by and then Monday arrives with a shock, everyone rushing off to work or school when the sunshine suggests the beach would be a better idea. Surely it is time to be sitting in the garden with bowls of elderflower icecream to cool us down?
Time to maybe turn a handstand or two?
Or perhaps for those of a less athletic turn (much like myself), it is time to sew in the dappled shade of the Cornish Aromatic apple tree where a gentle breeze shooshes the leaves and plays with light on linen...
Lovely Nina found the time to sew this dear little needlecase just for me and also sent a lovely bar of Green & Black's chocolate which Isabella and I scoffed with greedy haste! Do nip off and look at her blog full of the most beautiful pictures - we lead scarily parallel lives. Thank you so much Nina x
Isn't it time to gather pretty nosegays where lime green and soft cream sit happily with hot pink and deep purple, each posy filling the room with all manner of delicious aromas - some spicy, some sweet and some just... well, just nose-ticklingly beautiful?
And it must be time to while away some moments playing games of cards and mah jong
and, for the record, that was a terrible hand I had there!
Such a beautiful set to play with though.
Lucy insists we find time to spot butterflies & moths so that she can mark them off in her book. This one - a buff ermine we think - crawled out of Isabella's welly boot, much to her disgust.
I can happily find a minute or ten to gaze at this beautiful iris which has flowered by the wildlife pond for the very first time. How excited we were to see it, though the photograph has changed the colour; it is actually the deepest royal purple velvet, so rich and wonderful as it sits by the wildlife pond taking over from the cheery yellow flag iris which now are forming their amazing seedheads.
And, of course, there is always time for a smile
and a kiss
Yes, it's definitely feeling holidayish
