Good day garden hounds! This changeable weather seems to have unleashed a whole host of floral explosions across gardens countrywide and that's something I'll never complain about. Photos this week are from my mum's garden, which is a riot of colour at the moment. The anemones she bought as a packet of seeds super cheap and have done really well, seeing them swaying the breeze was such a perfect summers-nearly-here feeling.

More photos this week from Montreal Botanical Gardens. The plan was to share photos of yesterday trip to The Vyne (National Trust property in Hampshire) but weather stopped play. Bah humbug. One moment I'm dancing round a BBQ on a sunny afternoon with a can of ice cold beer in one hand and the next I'm dodging puddles and trying to manoeuvre the Battle Royale-esque nightmare that is a playground full of parent and children wielding umbrellas

 

 
 

A tranquil break

Hell Bay Hotel is a hotel (the only hotel in fact) on the small island of Bryher, the smallest of the inhabited islands of the Isles of Scilly. Bryher has a diversity of flora and birds to enjoy. Never before have I walked past a hedgerow and heard so much chirruping. There's gorgeous beaches and cliff paths that offer up breath-taking views. Bryher may only be a mile and half long by half a mile wide but it offers so much. Exploring the white sandy shores, looking out onto the crystal blue sea whilst keeping an eye out for the seal family is the perfect way to unwind. 

 

 

Beautiful views

 

The flight itself is only 15 minutes long which, pardon the pun, flies by. The children enjoyed spotting boats in the sea followed by excitable squeals as the islands came into view.
