First of all if you haven't visited since last Thursday, surprise! I've totally moved my blog over here! *does bestest jazz hands impression*

This week I've a real mixed bag of photos. Some, that you can see above were wild flowers from the meadow next to the lavender farm that some lovely blogging folks met up at on Monday. It was a lovely day, the sun was shining and tomorrow I'll have some nice lavender photos to share - the day really left me feeling very positive indeed. Plus I had a cracking kip that night, I've been sniffing lavender before bed ever since!

My own garden's veggies are growing really well, with 3 decent sized courgettes waiting to be used up I'm feeling full of horticultural win, bordering on smug. Even the cactus that my husband bought me last year that's been watered maybe twice, has decided to flower.

I also did some morning stealth photographing next door. Lovely Alex tells me that I can pop over anytime to take photos but I must admit I always feel like a right shady character snooping about with my camera, I look dodgy at the best of times...
