Spring in July...



 
{about a week ago, Jamie was excited to tell me that 'spring is in the one bush'... the jasmine is usually first to bloom but this is very early...}
 

 
{iceberg roses...}
 





 
{arum lilies...}
 


 
{this little succulent which looks like a lamb's ear was grown from a tiny piece I found on the ground when we moved into our house... }
 


 
{my Dad gave me a tree tomato plant last October... it has flourished for some reason... I was overjoyed when I spotted the first fruit about 2 weeks ago...}

Hibiscus




 
{hibiscus rosa sinensis, hibiscus morning star... I bought this one last November... at one point it looked pretty dismal... and now it is flowering beautifully...}

My Family...



 
{Jamie the builder... she bought this set with her own money at a charity shop...}
 

 
{Gemma has been wanting a hat like this for many moons... she is so in love with it...}
 



 
{this is how they went to school on civvies day... civvies day is when they can wear 'normal' clothes to school...}
 
 
{blurry but perfect...}
 



 
{chef Jamie... she prepared a wonderful, inedible feast for us...}
 
 
{blessed is how i feel...}
