Since last week I have been pottering a bit. Most of my pottering happens at the weekend - I don't really have time to potter during the week!

I've been collecting....

..adding some new tea cups to my collection...someday I will actually use these to serve afternoon tea to someone!

Admiring the lavender.... the garden and enjoying the sunny weather.


...and wishing I had more time to get out and do things. I caught a glimpse of the most amazing fallow field with hundreds and hundreds of poppies growing in it from the train on the way to work this morning. Sadly this field is a little too far from my house to make it easy for me to go and photograph any time soon! I had to content myself with snapping a couple of poppies in the field around the corner from our house. Sadly that field has nothing like the profusion of colour I saw this morning.


...still working on the Kim Hargreaves jumper, in between bursts of granny squares for my pastel throw. Also having lots of ideas for other projects - sometimes it's torture - so many ideas buzzing around my head but not even time to realise even a quarter of them any time soon!

  1. Beautiful pics Jen - I love the angle from which you snapped the poppies - very effective even with just the two of them! Lavender is soooo sweet, I love it too, as well as your lovely china; I have a few cup/saucer/plate sets that my elder daughter has bought me over the years - been meaning to photograph and show them - one of these days!
    Your knitting is beautiful - I'm looking forward to seeing the finished project!
    Have a great week,
