Bank holiday weekend
This Bank Holiday weekend, I've been...
Admiring...all the fruit on my gooseberry bush! It's only 2 years old and the first time I've had a proper crop. So, I've also been excitedly looking through recipes: gooseberry and elderflower ice cream is a strong contender at the moment. Yum!
Planting...up my troughs with argyranthemum (white daisies) and petunias.
Dreaming...of the long hot, summer to come!
Searching...around our local lake to find photos for the Scavenger Hunt (it's a tough one this month).
Enjoying...the madness that is Eurovision. This year we decided to really get in the swing so I downloaded the app to sing along, and we had nachos and tequila beer.
Baking...rhubarb and custard tart.
Auditioning...fabrics for my latest journal quilt. I'm now at the cutting out stage.
Smelling...the scent of wild garlic on a walk in the woods this afternoon.
Discovering...this 14-spot ladybird.
So how has your weekend been? As you can see, we had a stay-at-home weekend as we have a few busy ones to come. My pack for the 30 days wild challenge arrived too so I've been thinking up more quick and easy ideas for spending time with nature. Only a week to go!
Enjoy the rest of your week. x
