Jubilant June...

This month I've loved...

* a baby blowing me kisses at work * new pink plant * 25p vase *  finding Dolly Parton lyrics written in a word document on my computer screen at work (put on there by my cheeky little work friend - working 9 til 5!!) * rainbows * low flying swallows * seedlings * amazon vouchers * emails from my uni-friends * ice cream in cones * frogs * the smell of mock orange * mushroom beads * garlic bread * dreams with my friends in them! * finishing the 900 page long Diana Gabaldon book! * sunshine * poppies * pretty wild flowers growing all over the grass verges around town, I guess the council have decided not to cut them this year *  bunting everywhere * seeing lots of lovely crafty things at a handmade and vintage fair * crocheting * 

This rainbow appeared at the back of our garden a couple of weeks ago! (didn't find any gold though!) 

I'm in love with this plant, one day when I have my own garden I'm going to have's flowers are pink and yellow and orange all at the same time!!! It's a Lantana Sunrise Rose (P) in case you're curious!

This was our front garden this morning, I love how it's all colourful and wild! 

I've been blogging for 3 years this month!! It seems mad that in that time I've written 376 posts, received 1272 comments and this little blog has been looked at a total of 27,641 times!  So a big thank you to everyone who reads and comments and is generally lovely, it wouldn't be the same without you! :)

Hope you've had a lovely month?!

    1. I did get your email, and I sent you a reply too! I'm glad you're looking forward to leaving the heat, cos it really hasn't been warm here, soo much rain! I hope you don't get too soggy on your holiday! Enjoy London! xx
