The Year 2014 in Photos - Week 27

What did we do last week? I don't think I can actually remember except that it was sunny and, as always, busy and I have ended up with a lot of photos - sorry!

Garden picnic
Last weekend Rollercoaster Dad and I were busy trying to get stuff done on the scaffolding (so we can get it down and watch normal telly again) so the girls were pretty much left to their own devices. We did task them to prepare a picnic on the garden for lunch though and we even got paper bunting! 

unknown yellow orange flowers in garden
Not sure what this flower is but it's very colourful and  I love that it furls up for the night.

Gooseberry harvest
We picked all the gooseberries off the two bushes now - we almost have enough to make jam! 

Verbena Buenos Aires
My Verbena Buenos Aires is sooo tall. This one is taller than me! 

Little Miss has apparently started massage every day in class so she was showing Bigger Miss what it was all about - not sure this was the most relaxing spot though! 

picnic in the garden
Being that it was sunny there were more garden picnics after school.

Scoliopteryx libatrix, Herald Moth
I disturbed this little chap when I was picking the raspberries - he is a Herald Moth - rather beautiful I thought.

thoughtful by the hammock
And on a hot day this is my favourite place to be - swinging in the hammock with a book. Little Miss came to see me and looked very thoughtful! 

child's riddle about The Queen
Little Miss has been doing riddles at school and on the 'meet the teacher' day I spotted this on the wall and took a picture of it. Can you guess who she is talking about? ;)

cat out hunting
We are not huge fans of cats here at the moment as they keep pooping in our veg bed (yuk!) but I saw this rather handsome cat on the way home from the school run.

cornfields and clouds
Another capture from the school run - would have been better with blue skies but I am waiting for the corn to ripen and the sky to be blue to get that perfect shot.
For lots more summery fun head on over to the Boy and Me:
