Today is the last Friday in April, frightening thought don't you think. It is definitely true the older you become the quicker the days, weeks and months fly past. So with this in mind, I decided to reminisce, please excuse but indulge me. Grab a coffee or better still join me in a glass of red and view through some of my month highlights. WARNING, an obscene amount of photographs...
April and May are the best months in my garden, after 15 years here, I still have not cracked the rest of the year, ho hum. Must try harder.
|Grape hyacinth come back |
year after year in this pot
|Autumn pansies still going string|
|Side house view|
|Love it when the bluebells |
come out to play
|Blue and white bluebells!!!|
|I love tulips|
|Against the striking blue sky|
|Tall, elegant and variegated|
|These are stunning|
|So colourful in April|
|Yay! Growing potatoes in a bag for the first time to get |
some really early ones, the ones in the ground are far far behind.
|Local architecture, this was until |
recently the post office
|The size of the twigs and mini branches that |
are used to make these nests is truly amazing.
My surrounding area...
|So many houses here have beautiful wisteria, |
we do have, but ours is white and comes out a little later
|The river Thames on a Spring morning|
|A short walk from the house, |
luckily we don't suffer from hayfever
Living not too far from London, I do try to get into the capital at least once a month, I love being a tourist in our own city, after so many years, I still find new discoveries and of course often visit old haunts.
|A firm favourite, this month I |
saw the Magna Carter exhibition.
|Statue of Isaac Newton outside the library|
|Beautiful crescents, London is good at that|
|Always time for a coffee stop|
|Wonderful sculptures everywhere in London|
|Looking up at the Shard|
|Typical London town house|
|Loved the window box and |
the reflection in the window
Couldn't have a month round up without showing some of my months makes...
|A new brunch recipe tried and eaten with a little |
sock knitting thrown in for good measure
|Crocheted Scottie dog brooches|
|A commissioned piece,|
a funny little story about that here
|Loo roll covers ~ see here|
PS he still hasn't noticed?!?!
|Enjoying the garden whilst beginning a new crochet project...|
It has been a good month despite all the illness in the house. Hope you have had a great month too. Joining in with Amy from lovemademyhome sharing five things from my world, do pop over and see what others are sharing...
