June Flowers

I love instagram, it is a little break from my world and a peek into others and it makes me smile.

My own instagram feed is usually filled with kids creations, my baking attempts and a profusion of flowers.

Flowers have made me happy whole life through and have always added colour and scent to my days. Let me show you the flowers that filled my June and tell you  a little about them:

Our first sweet peas. We grow them every year and I just adore them . We give away bunches and bunches and still they come, so lovely.

I have been feeling a little down on and off  recently and every time it happens I try to focus on the simple things and see the beauty and sheer delight in them. Little daisies always make me smile.

Occasionally my daughter and I walk to school rather than drive and it always fills me with joy to stroll along the canal with her hand in hand. We need to do this more…look what we found on our amble.

These flowers grow next to our pond and make me smile at their determination to push through the dry cracks  in the rocks. I need that determination at the moment.

The pink lillies are about to burst and were a gift from a good friend I had helped out. Such a  lovely way to say thankyou and so perfect with the peonies.

These purple flowers are on a neighbour front garden wall. I have no idea what they are but they are oh so pretty.

Flowers really are rather fabulous aren’t they!

    Flowers really do lift our spirits don’t they? It’s the little violas that make me smile the most – I see the cheekiest little faces in them, and they remind me of my long departed cheeky puss cat and that always puts a smile on my face. Lovely pics x #happyandhome

    I love flowers too, I think they brighten up even the gloomiest day and as at the moment we seem to be having a lot of them I need lots of flowers in the house.
