🌱🌷🌱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... 🌦️🌀️🌧️☔
