Week in Photos

June 23, 2013

How are you doing? I’m still very busy, going out and hanging out with friends. The weather is mild, some days even sunny, so might as well make the most of it! Friday was the Summer Solstive, I wanted to see the sunset but unfortunately there were no conditions for it as I was in Nottingham and couldn’t find a high place facing the right direction. Hey oh.

Yesterday I also spent the day in Nottingham and went to the movies to see Behind the CandelabraIt was fantastic, great performances from both actors, Michael Douglas and Matt Damon. Has anyone seen it yet?

This week I also set up a short survey about the blog, if you could please spare a couple of minutes of your time (it’s only 4 questions) please share your views with me here. It is much appreciated as I am always looking for ways to improve this humble page for your enjoyment.

Hope you are having a lovely weekend and don’t forget to follow me on Instagram @hellothemushoom



Flowered Up

June 17, 2013

Whenever I visit nice gardens I am left wishing I had a green thumb and could grow beautiful flowers and plants.  One of the advantages of living in England and the fact that it is wet all the time is that plants grow everywhere and I see green a lot more often, as it is a lot easier to grow them in a cooler and wetter climate. The following photos were taken at Kellie Castle, on my latest visit to Scotland some months ago.

Our back garden looks a bit sad in comparison, don’t you think?

Maybe I should just check some garden tips and try my hand at making it look like this:

As it is Monday I am adding this to Patty’s Visible Monday over at Not Dead Yet Style.
