YES! That would be me, lol. We got back from our summer in France on the weekend, and ever since then, I have been trying to catch up with what seems like millions of missed blog posts from my favourite blogs. I am suffering from numb bum syndrome by now, I have spent that much time sitting here reading, and I am still about 3 1/2 weeks behind. I was so determined to catch up with all your news first, before writing a blog post, but heck, I can't wait any longer, I have so many photos to show you. Because I couldn't post much ( I really didn't want to impose on our friends too often ), I spent lots of time doing silly things like editing pics and putting them all into neat little folders, so once I start posting properly again, you will probably get a lot of one-themed posts, lol.
I know, I'll start with pretty flowers, how's about that? It is really difficult for us to plant or sow anything new at the cottage, because we are not there all the time, and young plants/seeds etc need a lot of looking after. So, flowers are not in abundance, in our garden/field, but I was delighted to see that a few of the seeds, which I had sowed in May had actually grown into flowers. Woohoo! I do have a few roses round the cottage as well, and they were flowering beautifully all summer long. They were still full of buds when we left. I do love wild flowers, and always pick some when we go wombling down the country lanes. They look so pretty in old French enamelled pitchers or glass bottles.
Here goes, French fleurs -
Leek flowers, wild daisies and those white lacy wild flowers which seem to have a hundred different names -
No idea what these wild flowers are called, but they are the prettiest shade of purple -
More stuff growing wild in the lower field, and I have no idea what these flowers are called either. But aren't they just the prettiest blue? And that tiny little pink tongue is just so delightful -
A tiny mixed bunch of wild flowers on an outside window sill -
And wild honeysuckle on the kitchen window sill -
One of the roses in the garden -
The packet said that these flowers would grow anywhere, and they did! Without being looked after! -
This is thyme, which grows wild in the top field. Can you imagine the wonderful scent when you walk through it? My craftavan is in the top field, and I always made sure I walked through a patch of thyme on my way to it -
And now I am going back to reading more blog posts. Only 3 1/2 weeks' worth to go! Tomorrow I need to post pics of a couple of Tag Tuesday challenge tags which are overdue, and I'll show you some vide greniers finds, if you like........
