And we had such a wonderful time in France which I could have talked about. The family came to visit again for a week and we did so many wonderful things together, the yearly fete des voisins took place in August and was such a fun evening, we visited lovely places and exciting brocantes, we spent quality time with neighbours and friends and volunteered twice a week at a dog shelter, where we fell in love with so many beautiful furbabies.
I hope to be able to catch up just a little and post at least a few pics of our activities over the next few days, but for right now, I am just saying HELLOOOOO AGAIN with a few photos of our newly planted roses -
This one we planted last year and it really struggled in the drought last year, but I think it is recovering -
And because I thoroughly enjoyed looking through my flower photos just now, here are a few more for you :-) -
This little flower, which looks so much like a sweetpea, is actually a bean flower. This variety of bean grows almost half a meter long!
Aahh, the sunflower, you can't help but smile when you see one of these in the garden, they are such cheerful flowers -
I loved my flower trolley by the front door -
The white begonia is just amazing -
The sedum flowers are such a beautiful colour -
And to finish this post, a photo of one of the things I miss the most about being at the cottage, the amazing sunrises I was able to enjoy during my early morning walks with the dogs -
