Saturday, my husband had to go aboard for the evening for work so the girls and i took ourselves off the the strawberry farm. We then visited my mum in the afternoon and the girls sat in the garden, drawing at the picnic bench whilst i discussed plans with my mum for her garden. We got up early on sunday and headed out to the countryside. We met with my mum, her partner and her dogs for a walk along the canal and watched some cargo barges coming out of the blisworth tunnel. The girls got really excited as they could see the light on the end of the boats in the tunnel and waited patiently for them to come on out. We then took a drive around to the wildflower meadow and nursery. I wanted to take some photographs of the girls amongst the wild flowers but the sun was so high and strong and i just couldn't get the shots right. I managed to get a few in the shaded areas. I am hoping to take them back in the next few weeks and also to pick up some more wild flower plants. The girls picked out a plant each of their own. Elle picked out a fox and cub plant and Mimi picked out an ox eye daisy.
When we got home, my husband had come back for the afternoon before heading off again to a different county over night. We just went out and picked up some dinner and just spent some time together. I was going to make jam with the strawberries but i wanted to spend the time with my husband. The raspberries are nearly ready at the strawberry farm, so i shall take the girls back in a few weeks to pick some raspberries and make jam with that.
Today, i am headed back to my grandma's to hep her with her garden. She has such a lovely cottage garden and has ordered new plants which i am going to plant for her.
