Olive tree in flower
Of course we need rain, but it's always a bit of a bummer when it's over a four day long weekend.
We still went away for a few days - those photos to come soon.
Doesn't rain always make the garden look fantastic?
Lavender in bloom
It's the same old garden but somehow... better. I guess we all look better after a good wash.
Not too sure what this is...
Could it be a type of Spanish Broom?
I must also say a big thank you to Karen at Sew Many Ways, who had a giveaway to celebrate her one millionth (!) visitor and I was lucky enough to win this delicate sterling silver necklace.
When her package arrived I thought it was very big for a little necklace - this was because she'd included a gift for each of the kids, even the one still in the oven. What a sweetheart.
The kids were all very excited and glad to have some new playthings - especially this past rainy week.
Elmo was sent for the toddler; lucky he doesn't mind sharing.
Thank you Karen!
