Everything's coming up Roses....and Lavender....and Thyme....

Hello There!  How are you?  Hope that all is well with you and yours....All is calm here and life has taken on a very lazy, hazy summer pace - or at least I have!!  No news on the Weight Watchers front - still a one Stone and 1lb loss - I think I may have plateau'ed this week!  So will have to try extra hard next week...no more lazing about drinking Iced Tea! 
I thought that I would take you into the garden, as that is where I spend most of my time at the moment....


 Mmm, now where's the cream?


The first of the cherry tomatoes......


The Lemon Thyme that the Bumble Bees adore!....


 The Rosemary is coming on well.....


Roses and the first lavender harvest....

I know Harvest is probably too strong a word for my few plants but still, I did grow it and am now drying it ready to bag up and sell on my little stall at the end of the month...
I have also started selling PHOENIX CARDS on my stall, I have been a trader for a while but have taken a while to get some pennies together to buy some cards - they are SO pretty and I took a few last month and they sold, so here is a little selection of what I will be taking with my homemade goodies this month....


A few of my favourites.....


Warm Wishes for a Wonderful Weekend,

our garden is full of wild flowers, roses, climbing jasmine and herbs~to say nothing of tomatos, chillis and a solitary cucumber~the bee's are having a wonderful time and since yesterday so have the butterflies :)

Hello Cally,
je suis peu présente sur internet en ce moment ... the weather is so warm and sunny in Britanny ... I spend a lot of my time outside ;-))
In my garden there are scents of sweet peas, hollyhocks, delphiniums and my favourite pink carnation. Butterflies from time to time. What a lovely Summer (j'espère que ça va continuer) !
Have a very nice time Cally !

Hi Cally,

Your garden produce looks great! I am still patiently waiting for mine as I planted it all way too late this year! I love Phoenix cards, I have seen them at a few craft fairs, and want to get one of their calendars this year.. where is your stall that you are holding?
