May was a busy and fun filled month with a canal trip, Rugby 7s tournament, my birthday and trip to Bristol where I met up with some lovely blog friends. All of which have featured in my Monday waves and pairs posts.
In between these highlights I had a busy and creative month.
and as a consequence took masses of photos of close up of texture or colour.
I re-read the Royal Assassin trilogy by Robyn Hobbs, on my kindle and enjoyed it so much I then immediately started the second trilogy in the related trilogy of trilogies (squared trilogy?). I first read them over 12 years ago and not in the right order so I had some idea of the characters and setting but could not remember all the details. Every so often I read about a new character or event and suddenly remember more details about them.
I crocheted some cute young guinea pigs and managed to add to my pile of blanket squares ready for a South African charity
I’ve enjoyed the spring changes to the birds on the river with the arrival of goslings, ducklings and lots of swans
I have been encouraging my 2 tomato plants and tickling the flowers to pollenate tomatoes – I have a good number of green ones maturing. In my garden my apple tree and strawbery and raspberry plants are all showing signs of a good harvest. My rocket (arugula to my friends over the Atlantic) has gone mad so I have plenty to pick for salads,a long with mint, young kale and sorrel.
Plenty of flowers to appreciate too – for some reason I seem to have been focussed on the white one when pointing my camera in May.
A third of the way into June already – plenty more to watch and do and enjoy – wishing you all a good month.
