Most of these photos were taken at least ten days ago, but they are bright and colourful and I thought I'd share them with you. For years, I didn't have any flowerbeds in our garden, hence all the pot plants, but I finally got my first flowerbed a little while ago -
A real flower BED!
I found this gorgeous duck egg blue child's bedstead a few years ago and finally dragged it out of the barn and put it to good use in the garden.
I have pots of these gorgeous petunias all over the place -
We have a shrub in our front hedge which, for a very short time in late Spring, produces these tiny little red heart shaped, errmm, fruit, berries, things....
Our vegetables are finally growing, as we had a few days of lovely sunshine, and we have been harvesting lettuces every other day -
The difference between shop bought and freshly picked is amazing, and we love our salads -
I took a couple of freshly picked lettuces ( and a rhubarb and apple crumble with freshly picked rhubarb of course ) to our neighbours Peter and Andrea, and look what we came back with! -
Fresh eggs from their hens! My DH had to remind me that I also had a goose egg left ( he had the other one for brunch and it was huge ) -
The roses are all flowering now, this is a little beauty, so pale and delicate -
I have been to a few brocantes as well over the last few weeks. We had 5 religious holidays in May and of course that means there were 5 extra brocantes to go to, yay!
I have only managed to photograph a fraction of the treasures I have brought home, but I will try and get some more done soon. I did photograph some today but had to stop when it started raining again. But as I am still up and fairly awake and kind of watching a Jackie Chan film I think I will prepare a post with those few pics and schedule it for tomorrow. And while it rained earlier this afternoon, I listed a few new things in my Etsy shop, which I hadn't done for ages and ages! Only small things under 3cm thick, which I can post from France without huge shipping costs ( gosh, I really detest the new La Poste tariffs ).
So, toodlepip for now. Wishing you all a very happy week wherever you are and thanks for stopping by. xxx
