One of my Welsh second cousins came to stay and I put some flowers in her bedroom:
Self sown Purple Loosestrife and Honeysuckle, grown from a cutting, in a small ceramic cube vase from Chive.
Joining Cathy at Rambling in the Garden
The vase sits next to a little Cathedral Window patchwork sampler that I made about 30 years ago. If you want to know how it is done here is a You Tube tutorial.
The tablecloth is a charity shop find that I’ve had for about the same length of time.
I wanted to take my cousin on my favourite walk and as it was a glorious day we joined my daughter and her children. If you remember Little Miss M recently said that she wanted to walk 500 miles with me, we decided to make a start:
Little Miss M had brought along the walking stick she had made when I took the 3 of them to Kingston Lacy and they did a woodworking workshop there.
We contemplated the walk ahead.
We all set off singing the Proclaimers Song at the tops of our voices
Currently one of Little Miss M’s favourite songs.
A wonderful walk ….
stopping at St Catherine’s Chapel for a snack and to enjoy the view
and then walking across the top of the hill to look back at where we had come from
We walked back down to cafe near the beach for some lunch and then to the beach for some pebble decorating. After that, a bit more walking along the beach to a huge drainage pipe that the children love running up and down inside, splashing in the water and hearing the echo of their voices.
When we got back to the car, according to the App on my daughter’s phone we had walked 4.7 miles …….. it’s a start!
