Gathering the Moments - July

Most of my moments during July were filled with
long days at work, however I got out and about
most weekends.

The best part about July was when
friends of mine visited my family in France!

It was wonderful to get some first hand news
on their return and see new photos...
oh how those three girls have grown.
In the centre of the above mosaic you can see
 my youngest grandie 
and on the right the butterfly wings I sent her.

...and I also popped into my fave patchwork shop and bought
a couple of fat quarters.
I'm a fabricholic - is there such a word?!

We went up north one weekend for a lovely wedding.
My husband is still beavering away restoring the boat.
There was some baking and of course a few walks.

I sometimes buy veges at a market garden nearby.
Hardly a month goes by when I don't visit
the garden centre - I'm addicted to them
and they're always good for a photo!
Lobelia and sweet Heartsease in my garden pots.

I'm joining Cheryl for her monthly meme
why don't you join us and show us what you've
done in July!

Take care and
be kind to one another

Fontainebleau Carousel

On my recent post on Fontainebleau fences here
my very observant friend Mary of the wonderful blog
spotted this carousel in the background
of one of the photos!

So here it is - the girls had a wonderful time
riding on the various animals.

They also managed to spot an ice cream stall nearby -
funny how they never miss one of those!

I love the pretty carousels in France
they are painted beautifully
and not at all tacky like the showground ones.

Enjoy your week
be kind to one another

  Merci à bientôt

Cornwall Park gardens in Summer

It's cold and wet here and has been for weeks...
I know we are in the middle of winter
but it does get rather tedious.

So today I'm re-visiting one of my favourite summer walks.
The Cornwall Park restaurant and tea room is a
great meeting place and favourite stop for walkers!!!

Some of the delicious morsels on offer!

I'm joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.

Take care and
be kind to one another

  Merci à bientôt
