Rouge....

Maybe this post should be titled "purists of the white look avert your eyes now !" ... I had a huge bunch of deep red roses that I had bought a few weeks ago for making button holes for a family wedding...as I was composting them... the petals started falling all over .....lovely red confetti....so I felt a little red post was in order ...! 




































































Enjoy your weekend everyone !

Abundance....



Right now the garden feels over flowing with soft colours and textures....
it might be too messy for some people but I like the "wild" style of gardening ! 










I've spent a peaceful hour reading in the garden ....it's hard to be still as there is always something that I could prune or snip...so it's good to
have an absorbing read....
"Care of the Soul" by Thomas Moore...
add a glass of home made lemon barley water...
what more could I ask for..?

wishing you all a peaceful weekend !

It's a good year for the roses...

This year our roses are blooming lovely ! 
when I know it is going to rain, I go out and pick to my heart's content
 as the rain spoils some of them ....
so today it might be raining outside ...
but inside it smells like summer !





wishing you all a good week !

July....


July has more than made up for the cold spring and early summer...it's been so HOT !










I like to mark the seasons with different traditions...
now it is elderflower time so I went with my sister to gather fresh elderflowers to make some cordial ..... it's almost ready to be bottled....this year I will freeze some to enjoy later ...maybe in ice cube trays so I can use a couple of cubes in a glass of water on a hot day ....mmmm!
The grass is long and dry and the trees and hedges have that lovely feeling of abundance that I love....

wishing you all a happy and peaceful summer weekend !
