We've had fabulous weather this week, and we tried to make the most of it. I had seen pictures of Highdown Gardens on facebook and knew instantly it was somewhere I wanted to visit. So we leapt on a bus, and found it easily enough, and it really didn't disappoint. You may know by now that I have a small obsession with photographing flowers! So this place was a perfect playground for me, and we'd gone at the ideal time of year.
There were carpets of bluebells
little clumps of primroses
an array of blossoms
and magnificent splashes of bright colours from the proud standing tulips
Crafting wise I have been focussed on my Mandala rounds and made good progress
And as I couldn't choose between relaxing and doing crochet or going out in the sun, my Mandala took a trip to the beach with me!
Best of both worlds!!
Each round looks so complicated in the written instructions, and occasionally I have a wobble and wonder if i'm out of depth, and then I break it down step by step and before I know it I'm in the flow of doing it, and then feel proud that another section is complete
Today I had to work in the afternoon, but the luxury of living so close to the sea enabled us to have a couple of hours strolling together
We even managed to pick up a few little treasures on the way
The forecast doesn't look so great for the week ahead, so it may mean we get some housework done ;-)
