Time spent in the wilds of Yorkshire


By lulu33


Hi folks, long time not been on Goy! Just wanted to thank those who sent birthday wishes and get well ones too :(
Sluggy and I were poorly yesterday, she’s better whilst I have another kidney stone and infection…..severe lack of sense of humour failure now! But I thought I would share a few photos of the wild flowers we saw on our walks with my adorable nephew and niece who are on holiday visiting as they live in Singapore.

Beautiful skies and flowers everywhere..

My beautiful god-daughter and niece Amelia, love this photo!

Some sky and grasses

Very tall foxgloves

Wild orchids

More flowers everywhere. As I didn’t have my glasses with me I couldn’t put the camera onto macro, so lost quite a few of the close ups!!

A very photogenic Amelia

Anyone know what this butterfly is?

Look what David bought me for my birthday, it’s so pretty.

To end up…my last mosaic. Hope I picked the right photo of it?

Hope you all are having a fine sunny day like it is here in the wilds of Gloucestershire? Am hoping to garner the energy to mow the lawn at least that will make the garden look tidier! Have been needing to dead head but looking at all the butterflies on the linaria and Knautia, I haven’t the heart to deprive them!!

Lovely blog Lulu. Sorry to hear you've been poorly - hope you're better soon. X

Thanks Pimp, funny, I've never noticed the Meadow Brown before, a sweet little flutterby. Sluggy is completely recovered, she is looking after me now, well, if you call bouncing on the bed looking after!
Sticki, I can hear the grass growing! I'm going to have a wee nap and then think about it later.
Glad you like my mosaic, i'm running out of my favourite glass now and must think of creative things to do with the left over, plain colours.
Amelia is such a cutie, she's not a blood relation. I feel sad when they all go back to Singapore. Hope to get to see them one more time when they come south. All I have to do is mention quad bikes!!

22 Jul, 2012


im not surprised they love the quad bikes!! i thought cos she is your niece thats maybe why you might look alike?

how about a lily shape flower [using the plain colours] in amongst your river bed stones would that work??

It's a bit of a downer really! Am going to order some more hydrangea root tincture, it helped move some stones years ago.
Can't take it easy Pixi!!!! 3 peeps coming to stay, work, clean, garden....walk pups!! Am feeling better though, except with the amount of water i'm drinking...keep having to duck behind the hedge!
