I used to walk round the house with Mitsi and Murphy, but when Saffy arrived we put in a fence and couple of gates to stop her getting on the drive. For that reason, I rarely walk round the house anymore. So I nearly missed the wisteria being fully out!
I was looking at my Instagram and Facebook pages and thinking I need more room photos, but then it’s so pretty round here outside right now .....
Not quite as good as last years “Campion and sunset” but you get the idea... next flowers to appear en masse will be the lovely daisies
And here are the buttercups. One of my favourite photos of M&M 🖤 I cant go in this field right now as it’s full of bullocks
Bluebells are the wildflower stars of social media world right now. And rightly so, they look and smell amazing in huge drifts of blue. Though I’ve been enjoying our local fields filled with a yellow carpet of dandelions and, now, buttercups. The next impressive mass displays will be from the foxgloves, turning some of our local hillsides pink. Walking through our woods, if you look carefully, there are many small wildflowers that go unnoticed. I decided to make a note of them all, much to the disgust of the dog. Here’s what I found: Dandelion Herb Robert Yellow pimpernel Wild strawberry Daisies Welsh poppies Forget me not Speedwell Greater Stitchwort Jack by the hedge Dog violet Red campion Ground ivy Buttercup Carpet bugle weed Wood sorrel Cow parsley Common vetch
A single swallow has spent the day surveying Mr B&B’s new shed ( you may all be impressed with Mr B&B’s new shed ) The swallow’s other half has just arrived 😊🐣
I just ate all of the leftover greek yoghurt with a big dollop of blueberry and lime compote 🐷
Fiery skies over the wildflower meadow tonight. We’re looking forward to this weekend’s promised sunshine
