A little earlier today ... housework done and a box that has been stored unopened since we moved in four years ago finally unpacked! It was the last one left too, so I suppose we can say we've finally settled in :)
It's been a bit cooler today but we are lucky, the patio at the back is a bit of a suntrap so it's been pleasant there and it's lovely to see all our newly planted tubs flourishing there.
And on the subject of flowers, here's another card featuring a paper from same collection as yesterday's - The Diary of an Edwardian Lady.
This time I have chosen the Bird's Foot Trefoil DP, another lovely wildflower that brings back a quite spectacular memory. Not from childhood this time but from much later. For a good many years I lived with my family on the Moray Firth Coast, in a little village near the amazing Bullers of Buchan which is a collapsed sea cave forming a huge and almost circular chasm, where the sea rushes in through a natural archway.
On one occasion when I was visiting the Bullers I was stunned to find myself walking among dozens of Common Blue butterflies - a truly splendiferous sight, particularly as they are not as common as their name implies.
