Every day is a beautiful day if you walk on the sunny side of the street

Every day is a beautiful day if you walk on the sunny side of the street
Summer days will surely return.

I looked at my blog yesterday on my pc rather than my tablet and saw how poor my photos are. I have been blogging from my tablet and using the camera on that - viewing on my tablet, they looked ok-sorry. It was a bit disappointing to see how they really look.
I have decided to take a break from blogging because  I am beginning to question everything I write - will it offend anyone?
what will others think ? etc. So the joy of writing has waned somewhat.
So I shall sign off.
Take care.
Much love,

Gardening offers a life lesson.....again

Even life's rubbish heaps can sometimes offer flowers.

I found these "love in a mist" fowers growing on a heap of compost round the back of the greenhouse.

Putting my feet up.......

What a week!
My blood inr dropped so I had to start doing injections again.
It was going to be a busy week with statutory tests and submission of data. I was also on a course for new baseline assessments effective from September.
Half way through the course I got a phone call saying Ofsted (government education inspectors) were coming the next day!!!!!
It has been mega stressful with fourteen hour days. All went well and I am now putting my feet up doing nothing much but reading and crafting
and breathing again - lol.
So that was my week -  it felt like a month -lol.

I was given free apricot foxglove seeds.

They germinated quickly. But it has taken 3 years for them to flower.

And now they are taking over the border.

Today I have been team teaching 80 children aged 3,4and 5 years of age.They behaved beautifully and enjoyed the singing, dance, music and craft activities we had set up.The topic was the creation story. I am so so tired!
I'm glad tea is already done-a slow cooker chilli.I have an hour's schoolwork to do and then I will be crocheting.I started this last night-another blanket to go to Eastern Europe with the Christmas shoeboxes.A nice easy way to unwind.L.x.

The language of flowers according to me ☺

I read and enjoyed Vanessa Diffenbaugh's Language of Flowers. It interests me that certain flowers were supposed to mean certain things. So here is my version in my border above.
A rose my boys bought their Dad for Father's Day.
Irises from my late Dad's garden and forget me not cos I shall never ever forget him.
Funny thing is none of this was planned -I just noticed it yesterday and the forget me nots appeared from nowhere!
