πŸŒΏπŸ’›πŸŒΏJune blooms πŸŒΏπŸ’›πŸŒΏ

As I type this blog post today all the windows in our cottage are wide open, it's quite hot and I've escaped to the coolness of the bedroom to blog

Its been a really jolly half term week with a couple of adventures... But also we've been busy at home in the garden... Planting up a lot of seedlings I've grown... My stevie was lucky to have this week off due to machinery maintenance where he works and new software systems being updated and fitted. So I've enjoyed having more time to spend with him.

This is my May round up that I add to Instagram too... It was quite a soggy month until the last week or so when the weather changed so suddenly and we had beautiful clear blue skies. 

Due to all the rains our Market town river was so high for weeks... Wonderful to walk the lanes and see them start to bloom with life and colour when the sun came... 
Church yard bluebells... So much beauty. 
We had a wonderful day up on Dartmoor & visiting the Princetown museum... Mainly to see the Moor otter... From the otter trail. 
And the beautiful nature gardens too... 
Lovely and cool up on the moorlands... 
Dupath medieval Well House, 1510 used for quiet prayer and baptism... Near Harrowbarrow, Cornwall. 
I do love Market days for fresh veg, bread and plants... But also for new-to-me books and vintage goods... 
Stevie took me for a wonderful magical mystery tour to a beautiful Devon village called Dittisham right by the River Dart estuary... I always like those kind of days not really planned just ended up there, but so glad we did. Beautiful lanes filled to the brim with lush greens of cow parsley, pink campion, bluebells and other wild flowers.... Thatched cottages greeted us and the sound of the village church bells. 

Rolling hills of Devon... πŸŒΏπŸ’šπŸŒΏ

Just a beautiful blooming June! 
Stevie surprised me with two beautiful mugs one foxy and the other a rabbit... 🦊❤️
My perfect spot under the dappled light of the Apple trees reading favourite mags... 
I've been taking a little personal break from art these few weeks... Mainly because we've had quite a busy time of late... I do need a certain level of calm amongst the chaos to be arty and creative... I also think the heat doesn't help my creativity. Though, saying that I've started a textile piece but just at the tacking stitches stage of the design of fabrics...so not much really to show. But it's themed around a window looking towards a garden in Spring time. Lots of embroidery to add when I feel like doing it. 
Gifts from the garden... 
I will leave you with this bright and cheery smile of foxgloves from Cornwall....

πŸ’š Teresa,


 I dedicate this post to Teresa Kasner, 
For her love of the seasons, her beautiful home, her wonderful creativity, her kind messages left on my blog. Teresa you had a beautiful, kind soul... I was sad to read on your blog of your passing. Although I didn't know Teresa in person  I had followed her blog for quite some time... I remember lovely messages we shared over our love of Cornish wares... 
I will miss your beautiful posts on my feed in blog land but you might find me looking back on your posts from time to time. I will remember the blossom that cheered your soul while being quite ill...

Its been such a wet May! 
I think every day its rained so far... In between showers & complete downpours we've been to some lovely places like Totnes Market town in Devon & The Duchy Nurseries in Cornwall... A beautiful walk with my mum near Harrowbarrow in Cornwall and the country lanes nr my twinnys home... Lots of lush green lanes of cow parsley after all that rain. 
The old abandoned Cornish mining buildings, nature has taken over like beautiful walled gardens. My shelf above the fireplace displayed for May with bluebells picked from right outside my door on the hilly lane. 
Writing notes in my garden journal... 
🌿         πŸ’š         πŸŒΏ
I've been busy creating as usual... Making patchwork fairies & finally got my artwork prints done. 
I've still had to ulter a few, slightly re work the colours on some... 
Sending a thank you to those that take time to comment here, I always love to see your messages they bring me smiles... 
And a fond farewell to Teresa πŸ’š

🌱April days🌱

Such a wonderfully sunny month, a few nippy in the air days here & there but hardly any showers... Well, until yesterday and this afternoon the April showers came...I love the smell of rain. 

🌱     πŸ’š      🌱

My monthly round up for April... 
Wonderful to see the Apple Blossom in my hill top part of the garden... 
My twinny gave me some beautiful tulips. 
New shoots, all my seedlings have grown so tall... Need to desperately pot on and get them outside... Waiting for a warm May day to do it. 
We had a lovely day by the sea a few weekends ago, Fowey in Cornwall. Beautiful blue sky but nippy... The sea was a beautiful turquoise. We looked around the harbour church and had a picnic of pasties and a cream cake. 
Re-emerge from lock down Oxfam charity book shop window display... 
I had a day trip catch up/shopping trip with my twinny in Truro... We had such a giggle, I'd missed her so much during lock down. 
Its been so lovely to get and about a lot more. My partner stevie had his first covid jab but had a nasty shivering cold feeling the day after and ache in arm, but that is part of side effects. 
All my fairies have been coming out to play... 
I'm still waiting on my batch of prints. 
Looking forward to warmer May days...
