Flaming June and A Good Year for Roses





Kitchen table flowers.


June arrived with record breaking temperatures. I went off to Dartmoor to my friends hill farm where over 1000 sheep were gathered in for the annual shearing. Along with others, we rolled the fleeces and looked on as the newly shorn sheep were relieved of their heavy coats in the searing heat.


A job made all the easier by the 3 sheepdogs who worked instinctively to the farmer's commands. It is a real pleasure to watch these amazing dogs at work.


At the end of the month I drove the familiar route to Hampshire arriving in my friends beautiful garden in the cool of the evening. This garden and house are one of my very favourite places to be.




The epitome of an English garden in Summer.

The following day I spent a wonderful time at The Country Brocante in Midhurst.


I attended a workshop with the very lovely Belle so enjoyable and informative, if you haven't seen her beautiful photography before, do go and visit her website and instagram page.

A little montage of Summer.


Fresh, line dried laundry is one of life's simple but great pleasures.

June has passed and July has arrived accompanied by equally hot days.....I am preparing information for the sale of Cowparsley  we have received lots of enquiries, I hope before too long we will have found a lovely new home for our little kitchen table business.

Enjoy your Summer
