Before I came to the Bretagne (Brittany to English speakers) region of France, I didn’t have any idea of the extent of the range of colours that Hydrangeas could be! The locals of Bretagne really seem to know how to grow them however, for they put on the most magnificent displays around their homes…
Visited the Chateau de Josselin today…we were only allowed to see four rooms because the rest of the castle is a family home! I wouldn’t mind a flower garden with a view this good myself…
One of the best things about France is that it’s citizens can get away with painting old buildings just about any colour they like! Combined with all the flowers, these houses and shops make such cute towns x
Another year finds me back in the country I love…France…the flowers are beautiful, and not in many places can you frame a flower shot so that it has a chateau or ruined cathedral in the background! The next month will see a wealth of new flower photos, and basically anything cute that I see xx
If there’s one thing I am, it is a hoarder of old things. I cannot bear to throw anything remotely old out – everything has a unique and interesting story behind it. One of my favourite things to collect are old ball gowns, dresses, skirts…any old clothing really. Yesterday I simply couldn’t resist getting out my Grandmother’s wedding dress…an incredible gown made by my great grandmother, complete with a gold bodice and a several meter long train weighed down with curtain weights. I felt like a real princess!
Lucky me stumbled upon an almost perfect fairy toadstool today – it looks almost like it was taken right out of a story book! If not for the chunk out of their roof, some very happy fairies would live here x
I personally am not particularly a cat person, but when a close friend of mine who is a cat lover was having a birthday, I simply could not resist making a cat-themed succulent set for her! These little succulents have found a home in a recycled cat food bowl – I hope she likes it!
