We're trying to make the most of the opportunities we have to be out enjoying the June countryside. After what happened to the summer last year (what summer!) we're taking advantage of any dry weather...
Walk #1. Taken late last week with N after meeting a friend for tea and (not very good!) cake at a nearby cafe.
Now the fairycakes. A had her two best friends round for a belated birthday sleepover and treat at the weekend. I'd made some fairycakes for them to ice...
And the birthday treat was...
Now to walk #3. After seeing the distant folly atop it's buttercup strewn hill in walk #1, I wanted to get a little closer. This morning I packed a picnic and after seeing A off to school (and going to B&M for some bargain gardening supplies) N and I set off...
here, such a difference the seasons make!)
I've not managed to get out on a bike ride for the last week or so and didn't want to miss getting photos of the buttercups, so was glad the weather held for us to take this walk and picnic today. I'm also aware that as N starts school in August time for our little walks together is now limited. Best make the most of it while we can!
It has been a good year for buttercups :) I love the view of the folly and the hill beyond at the start of this post. These sound like lovely walks, it's good to make the most of the better weather while we can!
Oh those buttercups are just lovely Anne.
What wonderful outings you've had. A picnic lunch up at the Folly....how special is that?
Love all the photos, the Cow Parsley and Dog Rose....just beautiful....
A vintage year for cow parsley and buttercups. You live in such beautiful rolling countryside.
And yes, cherish the time with pre-school children while it lasts. It is such a cliche, but it does all go too fast.
your photos are awesome and inspiring. what a beautiful country you live in. you are blessed.
I would like to make the knitted teddy (yellow) that you featured on your blog. where could I find the pattern?
Beautiful photos. Love the buttercups in the field the folly looks interesting x
Such beautiful photos, the buttercups are so vibrant against the green. You live in such a beautiful area. Glad the little girls had a fun pony ride.
Your photos are so beautiful. I love them all, but especially the shot of all the cow parsley, how pretty. I love the dark clouds in the last few too, though I know you probably wanted sunnier, clearer skies for that walk. :)
Beautiful photos! The wild flowers are just so stunning this year. x
I have said it before and I will say it again; you do live in a beautiful part of the World. You take wonderful photos too!
Lovely walks ....on two legs and four!
I love the folly and the photo from inside.
