A Birthday, a Garden & a Bluebell or Two.
No computer, no internet, no blogs...not a good time. It's been a testing few weeks where such things are concerned and we are not sorted yet, but hope springs eternal. In the meantime, here are some of the things we have been up to here at Poltisko Farm: trips to the beach, though often well wrapped against t4h cold breezes blowing in over the ocean
A blog giveaway from the lovely Tracey of Funkeymonkey blogspot. I won a gorgeous Cath K mug which holds a goodly cuppa
The lovely package also included Green and Black's chocolate and a pretty soap along with these napkins which happen to match some of my mugs. Thank you so much Tracey x
Gardening has been very much on the agenda with tulips and forget-me-nots tangling together and surrounded by bluebells and fast-growing paeonies.
The one hundred bluebell bulbs sent as a present from Dave when I was pregnant with Isabella are spreading beautifully by the garden wall and mix with ramsons of pure white.
oh, how I love bluebells;
Walks in the woods with streams for both Bellas to play in, though Bella dog gets much wetter!
Translucent leaves against pale cold skies.
A three hour jaunt due to getting lost in the woods. Little Isabella did so well, especially considering she is recovering from chickenpox.
An outing for the youngest three to a local theme park, a treat from lovely big sister Matzen and her boyfriend. It was a treat for Dave and I too as we were childless for a whole five hours which NEVER happens! Lunch at an Italian restaurant was our treat to celebrate...yum.
Aren't they sweet? Thank you Matty xx
Yet more pottering in the garden
Delicate alchemilla holding crystals in her soft leaves
The seemingly endless billowing of blossoms heralding the coming fruit (I hope)
and some weeding. Aren't the dandelions prolific this year? Isabella tells me we need to make more dandelion wine and I realise I have not tasted last year's yet. I will report back on this.
They are pretty though.
And finally, our gorgeous girlie's fourth birthday.
We love you Isabella xxx
Hope to catch up with you all again soon. I miss you! x
