Macro Monday May 13th

Every week I think there won’t be anything to photograph for Macro Monday and every week, I find myself spoilt for choice!
If anyone knows what this plant is I’d really appreciate it if you could let me know. I planted them last year and can’t remember what they are. They’re doing really well and I’d like to get some more but I can’t because I don’t know that they are!



I put a photo on of these last week but I couldn’t resist taking another because they’re so pretty!



I was delighted to find some kind of fungus growing in a pot that last year contained an annual and that I’d forgotten to empty this year.





My favourite elder tree will soon have flowers 🙂


These are the new shoots of the Love in a Mist seeds I planted a month or so ago 🙂


One of the little pools of water on the waterfall feature. I put some glass stones in each pool and love how they shimmer in the water 🙂

The Handmade Home – A Review


That was me when my copy of Cherry Menlove’s, The Handmade Home was delivered to me via Amazon 🙂

I decided to treat myself to this book as I’ve been a fan of Cherry’s blog for a few years.
I always look forward to new posts and in the run up to Christmas it’s my ‘go to’ place for inspiration (along with Pinterest of course!) because Cherry loves Christmas just as much as I do!

Each chapter in the book has a different theme, including, but not limited to, Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, Halloween and of course, Christmas!
There are so many recipes I want to try as well as some sewing projects, including the chair covers because my dining chairs suffered a terrible fate at my hands; it included some paint and an attempt at decoupage :o/
but the less said about that, the better!

Anyway, moving swiftly on….the book is so lovely that even if I never make anything from it (but I’m sure I will!) I won’t feel like I’ve wasted my money because I enjoy looking at it while having some quiet time to myself with a coffee.

It’s a welcome addition to my bookshelf and I’m keeping my fingers crossed that Cherry makes a book packed full of Christmas things to cook, bake and how to decorate for the most wonderful time of the year!
