When we are in France, one of the things I enjoy most is just wombling down the lane and looking at all the lovely wild flowers and critters. Actually, to see some wildflowers I don't even have to go as far as the front gate, lol, our so called garden really is more like a meadow/field. We found one corner of it covered in dandelions, a see of bright yellow!
If only they didn't all turn into this -
Now these little daisies are so sweet, and when we finally bring our granddaughters over to France, I'll be making lots of daisy chains with them -
Big patches of tiny little flowers carpet the sides of the little lane which runs past our cottage -
They are really really tiny, but so very pretty -
And these beautiful blue ones are the teeniest weeniest ones -
The wild rose in our garden/meadow/field was just about to flower. This bud was almost sparking with dew -
Finding dew covered spider webs -
Simple pleasures indeed, but they make me so happy.
This also makes me happy, seeing my DH and our doggies sitting in the grass and watching life go by in the valley below -
Or watching Hector pretending to be a little lap dog -
He doesn't always look so silly, he is really quite the most handsome dog in the whole wide world, and we are not biased at all, LOLOL -
Oh I must stop looking at the photos from last week in France, lol, otherwise I'll never get this post finished.
I have found some very pretty books recently so I thought I scan them in, in case some of you can use the images for your collages, as backgrounds perhaps -
I love this green!!!
The images are quite a good size, click on them to get the larger size, and then click on them again to get the biggest size.
I also found a wonderful book called Landscape Illustrations of the Bible. Published 1836 and full of the most beautiful engravings. You don't have to be religious to enjoy those engravings, they really are quite wonderful landscapes. I'll try and scan some of them during the week.
I hope you all have a wonderful evening/morning wherever you are. Toodlepip xxx
