Bee-have....

 







I've come inside for a bit of cool....
the temperature is in the 80's today....
the sky is blue...
summer is back...in the UK we have
to enjoy it while we can !!

An early morning visit to the allotment to water today at about 6.30am....
and the bees were already hungrily feasting on the annual poppies...
2 or 3 bees in each bloom at a time ! 
So a cheap packet of poppy seeds is a great way to help our endangered friends...! 

Enjoy the sunshine ...
Happy Days...

Wild moon woman....







I've been so busy in the garden that I felt a real "need" to do a little something creative indoors...so I made a cushion cover with some old linen and a bit of embroidery....

didn't get chance to plant my cat-nip seedlings before Snowy the cat helped himself...
I think it's got his approval !

Have a lovely Sunday ... why not do at least one little thing today that nourishes your soul? I'm going out to walk barefoot on the lawn and enjoy the feel of the dew on my feet...
sending you all peace and love...

the smell of summer.....


our lovely meat safe ...used for storing fruit and vegetables and preserves....









It's been a busy week in the allotment ...we are starting to harvest courgettes,potatoes and spinach and also winter onions....bringing home beautiful big bunches of delicious smelling sweet peas....the smell of summer....
also it's time to harvest red gooseberries and black and red currants....a very sticky business ! 
yesterday I made jelly with mixed berries and currants...it's a lovely dark colour with a sweet and sharp flavour ...I thought I would make a few jam-pot covers using crochet...quite twee but nice for a gift or even to look cute in the cupboard...

wishing you all a nice week !

No mud, no lotus....



The water lilies are out at the allotment...
And I've picked the first courgettes...
so even though the weather here has been really torrential , it still feels like summer ....
Hope you are enjoying these lovely,light filled days!

A perfect moment in time....

Sometimes a moment comes along where everything feels just perfect...in balance...at peace...where I might look at my surroundings and breathe a sigh...
 troubles of life seem far away...
and all that I am aware of is beauty...
the beauty of this earth that we live on...
what a gift....
the incredible variety in nature...
 clouds moving gently across the vast, blue sky...
the beach with it's multi coloured rocks...
the tide far out and the sand reaching as if forever...
birds singing happily in lush trees...
a gentle breeze....












 I wish you peace..
I wish myself peace...
I wish the world peace....

Cricket jumper...



The cricket season is under way... finally I've finished "his" late Christmas present hehe...
It's knitted in a 50% wool 50% cotton mix...
really soft and nice...

MISSED by P G Wodehouse
The sun in the heavens was eaming,
The breeze bore an odour of hay,
My flannels were spotless and gleaming,
My heart was unclouded and gay;
The ladies, all gaily apparelled,
Sat round looking on at the match,
In the tree-tops the dicky-birds carolled,
All was peace - till I bungled that catch.
Happy summer days everyone !
