πŸŒ±πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§πŸŒ±Jubilee 🌱🌹🌱

Well, what a wonderful jubilee...πŸ’•πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§πŸ’•πŸ‘Έ

Sometimes I do get a bit anxious around large gatherings of people... I definitely prefer to escape large crowd's but actually I found the whole jubilee long weekend quite exciting and joyous... Our little market town literally went to town on its street party's, live music from 40s,50s,60s...each day they had something rather lovely planned... Punch & Judy, vintage Market, art & crafts Market, food & drinks, cream teas and a steam fair & a party picnic in the park and mini fair for the little ones. Oh and not forgetting lots of wonderful bunting everywhere... πŸŒ±πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§πŸŒ±πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§πŸŒ±πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§πŸŒ±πŸ’•
Wonderful vintage cars dressed for the jubilee... 
And did you get to see that wonderful clip on TV of the Queen at Buckingham Palace with Paddington bear?... πŸ’•πŸ»πŸ‘ΈπŸŒΉ Enjoying tea & marmalade sandwiches ☕πŸ‘‘ The parade was so wonderful too... So many wonderful costumes & puppets & vintage cars... 
I found a wonderful vintage scrapbook of royal images, so I handmade lots of bunting & hats with it... We may of eaten too many cream teas and strawberries but we definitely all had a jolly good jubilee celebration. πŸŽ‰πŸ“πŸŽ‰πŸŒΉπŸŽ‰πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§πŸ’•πŸ‘ΈπŸ‘‘πŸŽŠ
A little catch up too... Just before the jubilee my brother came to to visit with his wife from the East anglian coast... They took us out on a couple of trips... We had a wonderful time with them & we went to the Cornish Coast of Boscastle... πŸŒ±πŸ’™πŸŒ±
Wonderful to explore the harbour town. 
May came and went in a blink of an eye, such a fun packed month too... Its my favourite month when the landscape looks so pretty with cowparsley, pink campion, bluebells & lush meadow lands. I've walked and walked my way through this month too. But that's easy when the Devon landscape is so pretty... πŸŒ±πŸ’šπŸŒ±
Saltrum house gardens, national trust... The big headed poppies starting to bloom. 
And a medieval window at Cotehele with sweet peas πŸŒ±πŸ’šπŸŒ±

🌱🌷🌱Moments in May🌱🌷🌱


May sunshine & showers....its been a real mixed bag weather wise... But the rain makes the Devon countryside so lush & green. My pots on the hill top & apple trees definitely have come to life in these last weeks.  We enjoyed a wonderful,  almost 9mile hilly walk... I totally dressed for March not May and was spending each few miles pealing off layer by layer cardi & coat. It turned out blooming hot. The Cornish countryside look so beautiful especially all the meadow land towards Calstock & harrowbarrow... We stopped off half way for tea & cakey at the National Trust property of Cotehele... The beautiful medieval property & gardens especially apple orchards are wonderful at this time of year. 

Wonderful place to explore or sit in peace. πŸ’šBluebells & cowparsley covering the Cotehele estate. πŸ’š
Looking towards the Tamar River... And walking around the gardens & potting shed. Along the Cornish lanes the views were breathtaking I came home from the walk with some cowparsley & pink campion (only a hand full)... πŸŒ±πŸ’šπŸŒ±
Wonderful May wildflowers cheering up my cottage this week and some new-to-me books and lovely decorative mug... 
Actually, looking over my photos on my phone I've realised how much walking I've been doing... Definitely helps when the weather is bright & the landscape so pretty. But I still keep having naughty bakery treats so I better walk some more tehe. 
I've been enjoying spending time in the garden & listening to the swifts and swollows swooping over the hill top. 
Enjoying strawberries & cream in the sunshineπŸŒ±πŸ“πŸŒžπŸŒ±πŸŒ·πŸ’šπŸŒ±πŸ“πŸŒ±
Making Jubilee inspired decorations... A little bit more painting too. 
The community garden in our market town really is a beautiful sanctuary for me... 
So beautiful at this time of year... Lots of allotment veg growing, wild flowers & roses starting to bloom πŸŒ±πŸ’šπŸŒ±πŸ’šπŸŒ±πŸ’šπŸŒ±
My dresser top this Monday morning just after the rush of family and then some quiet time with coffee & housework while it pours with May rains... 🌦️🌀️🌧️☔
