Lime green and purple rays

Lime green and purple rays

Umbellifers are my favourite flowers. Budding, full flowering or gone to seed and withered after a long winter, I like all stages of these most fairy-tale of flowers. During a walk with my little girl, we saw many pretty things: rosehips, golden leaves and pink...

The reluctant gardener?

The reluctant gardener?

The amount of produce we had from our veg garden this year has been shocking really, and not in a good way. Every spring we are all excited about the garden, and that this year we will grow most of our veggies ourselves, the biggest range we ever grew, being...
Cheeky gulls and sandy toes

Cheeky gulls and sandy toes

Back from Greece with a tan, lovely colourful images in my mind and on our camera’s, and kilograms of tiny stones and pebbles, it’s a good thing we drove to our holiday :) This trip included our very first official camping trip with our little girl…...

No seashells in Greece! but something better…

Well, not entirely true, I found about 4… I was really looking forward to hunting for some amazing shells, but they were almost absent where we were staying. But there was something way better than seashells; amazing multi-coloured pebbles and tiny stones in...

The summer is almost over here, but we’ll be going to the sea in a little while!! I love spending time near the sea in the late summer, the weather is not so blisteringly hot, and everything is so mellow and golden. To get me in the mood I collected some lovely...

storks and pensive moods

We had some lovely guests; they came in the night and stayed over, all 14 of them. They were a bit noisy but it wasn’t too bad. They stayed till nine in the morning when the rising sun painted them lightly with gold. Seeing these storks is a sure sign that...

Sweet Pea success!

Sweet Pea success!

It worked! In my new home here in Bulgaria summers are pretty hot. One of my favorite flowers, the lovely sweet pea, does not like it hot at all! I have tried for a few years now to grow them here, but after an enthusiastic start they just give up once the sun starts...
Our week at the sea is almost over…

Our week at the sea is almost over…

We had such a nice time here, waking up to the sounds of the waves and gulls is really something special. Dave is a big fan of the coast, being born and raised near the sea. Sanna has been sleeping really well wherever we went! Sleep has been a bit of an issue in the...
