🌿🌞Moments in May🌞🌿

πŸŒΏπŸ’πŸŒΏπŸ’šπŸŒžThe weather in Devon this May has been glorious... Blissfully sunny.  I think the Winter felt so long and at times so bleak! So to have the sun rays and blue skies has cheered my soul completely... With my daughter going through stressful exams it's been good to escape it all in the beauty of the Devon countryside & up on the moorlands.
Stevies work has had a weeks holiday while they up date certain steel machinery & softwares. So I've had both my favourite people home with me this week. Sophia has had some extra hours with an English tutor too. So between that we've mainly fitted in local walks as Sophia needs time for revision. I haven't minded at all being local, home or nearby walks. I've spent time in the garden (mainly sorting pots & beds) digging & weeding... Doing household chores and getting up at the crack of dawn to paint with my acrylics on canvas board. 
πŸŒ±πŸŒΌπŸŒ±πŸ’›A few weeks ago we took a drive about 40mins to Lanhydrock estate, national trust in Cornwall. It's a beautiful place to explore lots of woodlands, gardens, park land & huge house... Even a thatched cottage & church within the estate. And still lots of bluebells in the woods. We didn't walk around the whole house just the kitchens & larder rooms as it was nust so busy with tourists. 
I loved that the cook was called Mrs Candy!! Great name isn't it. πŸ€£πŸ’•
πŸŒ±πŸ’›πŸŒ±πŸŒΏπŸ’πŸŒΏThe dresser top looked so pretty & cosy with the lamp & candle light, especially with my beautiful tulips from market day that I took a photo of it. I've been busy behind the scenes with house things, paperwork and trying to set up my Etsy shop again. I'm trying to build a collection of art to get bulk printed into prints. I'll get there, eventually. 
πŸŒ±πŸ’›πŸŒ±πŸŒžThe Devon country side is so perfectly blissful right now.... πŸ’šAnd a real inspiration for my imagination to paint. 
So many beautiful walks on our doorstep πŸ’š
πŸŒ±πŸŒžπŸŒ±πŸ’šWe found a hidden meadow down an overgrown foot path... Isn't it exciting when you discover a new walk way... I love a secret adventure discovering hidden gems. πŸŒ±πŸ’šπŸŒ±
πŸŒ±πŸŒžπŸŒ±πŸ’›Early morning & early eve walks are my most favourite times... The bird song & sunlight at this time are perfect & peaceful πŸ’š
🌱🌞🌱Meadow & wildflowers are my favourite πŸŒΏπŸ’πŸŒΏπŸ’š... I always think May & October are the most beautiful months of all. 
πŸŒ±πŸŒžπŸŒ±πŸ’›Peaceful moments in the garden... 
πŸŒ±πŸŒžπŸŒ±πŸ’šSimple pleasures are the a Mornings cuppa alone in the garden listening to the birds and watching the bees... x    K a z z y    x


  1. has been rather lovely here in South Devon, hasn’t it? (Although we are in need of some rain, now! ) Like you, I love wild flowers; I’ve just sown a load of wild flower seeds, which came up within days! I’ve also been planting wild flower plug plants in the lawn, which is covered in daisies! You have some gorgeous walks where you are!
    I hope that your daughter’s revision is going well! Lovely photos and a delightful blog! Sal 😁

  2. Sorry, that was Sal at Sal’s Snippets! 😁

  3. I love those shoes! You told me what they are called but I can't find them in the USA. Boo! It looks like you are enjoying summer's approach! Such a lovely place you live!

  4. Such a lovely post Kazzy. Wasn't May just so glorious! I really love this time of year. It's my wish this year, that I get to visit more National Trust homes. There are so many beautiful homes to visit. I'd love to see more. Baby Bear is revising for his GCSE's also. Gosh, remember when they were both so little?!!!!!!! Time flies! Here's hoping June is glorious too! Take care my lovely xxxxx
