Blue Pool


Hi,

I am very behind with my blog,  last month we had a few days away and visited the Blue Pool again,  last time we went the owner had died the day before,  I can now say that it has been brought by a new owner.  The Pool is a scientific importance so I am pleased it will remind as it is.


T/his visit the Rhododendrons were out in full flower,  They were beautiful and several different colours,  

Here is a link on our last visit we did last September,  






We had another go at a selfy,  yes he was smiling and looking happy with his mask put around the bottom of his neck.  
We did enjoy our visit,  lovely to go and see the place,  beings back a few memories for me when I was working down there and walked the dog around the pool every day.

Hope you are staying safe and well,  with everything opening up this week and the new cases going sky high,  I can see us being back in lockdown again.

CD Sunday Challenge - # 63 Anything goes



 Hi,

Another fortnight has whizzed by and its time for CD Sunday challenge,  as usual its anything goes as long as its from a CD, USB or digital material,  is either a card, journal or a project.  This fortnight I am hosting the challenge.

My card for this challenge I used House Mouse triple CD by Joanna Sheen,  I love house mouse and this image is not only summery but cheeky with the mouse pinching the cherries (I love cherry's so he would have to be quick in my house).  I used the image with matching backing papers and matted the image onto Hunydory red miri card,  I used buttons for the cherry's and I die cut piece of green,  the ribbon is from stash and matched the card well even though it has red rose buds on it.

Lilly of the Valley


 Hi,

At last this is my first flowers of my Lily of the Valley they are about two to three weeks late flowering, due to the cold weather and frost we had in April.   I always post a picture of Lily of the Valley on the 1st May,  as Lily of the Valley are big in France on that day,  when I had my florist shop I had a french woman come in to buy some and was very annoyed I did not have any,  that year like this they were late flowering,  This mouth has been very wet,  and not very warm, hoping the weather will improve and it’s warms up a bit.  Over the next few days our forecast is high gale force winds and yet more rain.
