It took me until today to realise how long it has been since I last posted something!
My beloved camera lives next to my side of the bed and on Sunday morning when we woke up at 4.30am with the sunlight coming through our blinds I snapped this picture The room was so light you could read a book, it’s impossible trying to sleep like that! I only wish I had a horse to ride or a dog to walk at that hour of the morning :)
Also I got home from school today to find this on our kitchen ceiling…
Which fair gave me the heebie jeebies! It was about the size of my palm and I don’t know where it came from or if there are more :( I sucked it up with the vacuum cleaner poor thing, it made a huge clunk when it hit the inside. Just the other day I was saying to my soon to be brother-in-law (4 days!) that I hadn’t seen any big spiders lately, that’s Murphys Law for you!
The garden is growing HUGE!
Our herb wheelbarrow is so handy but the caterpillars love the mint
And we are beginning to see some colour on the tomatoes
My basil is surviving even though the hanging baskets are quite dry and in full sun
The fennel bulbs and beetroot are looking healthy too!
Last but not least the zucchinis are flourishing
and the aubergines have beautiful purple flowers on them – it will be interesting to see how the beautiful aubergines grow.
It has been so much fun having a garden, the cos lettuce and rocket has done it’s dash but we made some lovely salads from them, and now we just have to contend with all the hungry snails who think our garden is pretty brilliant too.
We had a lot of rain over the weekend which was so nice but it’s just going to get hotter from now on – we might have to start thinking about a shade cloth otherwise things will fry!
I know back home you’re still getting frosts and snow but don’t be jealous! When yours is flourishing ours will be burnt to a crisp :)
Love you all xx
