Not that they last very long or that anyone other than little bebop gets to eat them!

This was our fairy walk in our local woodland…. Isn’t that the most perfect fairy tree! Soft grass, a tree with a hollow and complete with toadstool at the bottom.

Lovely walks to the pub down the lane…. Goodness me, little b loves the pub!

20140713-225338-82418398.jpg

Vibrant geraniums, I love these so much. My geraniums here are from last year! They look so nice with the blue forget me nots don’t they.

20140713-225518-82518723.jpg

I love forget me nots, these are from earlier in the summer. I’ve just spent a loooooong time gathering all their seeds and sprinkling them in my borders for next year.

Al fresco moments….

20140713-225814-82694524.jpg

Park visits…

20140713-225922-82762193.jpg

I’ve scattered wild flower mixes this year and have been really pleased with them…

20140713-230021-82821249.jpg

I love some of the colours of the giant poppies that have cheerfully sprung up….

20140713-230120-82880148.jpg

And I’ve enjoyed these joyous clumps of feverfew this year, I’m trying to spread these around to create a border for next year although it really does smell rather potent.

Little b is enjoying looking into our local folklore at the moment. She pretends to be maid Marion and so we had a lovely outing with aunty k to our city and visited Nottingham castle.

20140713-230641-83201914.jpg

She’s taken ownership of her first ever bike! Although the frustrating task of how to steer etc has been assigned to M as I have failed miserably!

20140713-230815-83295394.jpg

And our ten year old, worlds crankiest BBQ with weeds growing out of it’s nooks and crannies had finally been replaced!

20140713-231022-83422119.jpg

Although, M’s patience in lighting it was rather minimum! Still, it is a good firework show!

We’ve had a rare treat of a whole weekend of daddy time this week, it’s so lovely as M works soooooo hard.

20140713-231309-83589833.jpg

I absolutely love to sit back and observe their moments of tenderness together…

20140713-231358-83638440.jpg

And enjoy a little rest whilst b is wrapped up in her daddy’s attention.

Our wonderful little beauty!

Ooooooooh summer time, how I love you! And you have only just begun xxxxxxxxxxxxx
