The reason for all these posts today is...

...that I will be away for a couple of weeks, so I want to leave you with as many photos as possible. Over the last few weeks I have managed to upload all the very best shots I took this Summer, and when I am back I hope to have loads more to share with you.

As ever, many thanks to all of you, regular and occasional visitors, for taking the time to stop by!

As French people say: "A bientot!"

Reaching out for the sky

Petals and pistils at Chatsworth

...while I was browsing in the shop, I saw a lovely flowers arrangement and the view onto the court. Later on I spotted a visitor's legs, she/he seems to emerge from the flower, funny!

Artwork with shadows III

Half way through applying some magenta, I went out into the garden and laid the artwork on the patio, I then spotted the shadows of the flowers, moved the sheet of watercolour paper and voila'! I think it is an intriguing image, what do you think?
As ever, many thanks for stopping by!

The floral calendar-22 July

While we stayed at Pandora's cottage, we picked pink roses and Mumsy decided to create a floral calendar, how sweet and original!

Part of the garden from Tilly's perspective...

...Tilly is one of our dear friends at Pandora's farm, a very inquisitive and adorable cat. Yes, I took loads of photos of her and I will share with you very soon!

The sublime elegance of daisies...

I never get tired of taking photos of daisies, they are incredibly beautiful in their simplicity, and when the sky is blue and there are just a few white fluffy clouds passing by on a Summer's day, well, it is sheer perfection and utter happiness!
