Summer Days

Wild Stawberry

Wild Strawberry

At last, it finally feels like summer! We’ve had enough sunny days inbetween the cloud for me to believe that it really is summertime :) When I got home today I dashed out into the garden to take a few pics while the sun was still shining. Summer is my favourite time of year (apart from Spring and Autumn!) I love the bumble bees buzzing around the garden and the frogs calling to each other.

I grow the wild strawberries especially for baking, because they look so pretty topping cupcakes or cheesecake, or dropped into sparkling drinks. The feverfew is for the occasional migraine, and the catmint is a fab sedative and relaxant, so I pop a flowerhead in my lemon balm tea before bed. I have to grow the catmint in a pot, so that I can hide it from Freddie when he’s on the rampage – like all cats he goes nuts for it and would destroy the whole plant if I let him!

    Aw, you’re SO lovely Anna ((hugs)) xx
    I’ve always loved nature, I think my Gran instilled it in me at a really young age :) Plus we lived in the woods, so we were surrounded by it – although in the summer our home used to get a bit invaded. Hornets. *shudder*

    I was searching for some information on how to plant in my garden. I don’t know why but Baidu showed your article. And I really found it interesting and so I decided to read it. I’m glad I did because I came away with something ot think about.
