Lovely Summer

 This week the theme is Lovely Summer.
Last year my dear friend gave me a tin tub with this pretty succulent plant in it.  I had no idea it would bloom and was thrilled to see these little pink flowers opening up on it this week.

Past Times

 This week the theme is Past Times.  
I love the workmanship on this beautiful old Singer sewing machine - I wish they decorated modern ones like this!

 My lovely blog friend Lynn has a collection of wonderful rusty objects in her garden and she inspired me to photograph my old sewing machine outdoors - although it did come back indoors when I had finished!

Looking Down

 This week the theme is Looking Down. 
 We live a short drive away from Exbury Gardens and this is the perfect time of year to catch their Wisteria in all it's glory.  The last picture is taken from the steps looking down at some of the glorious racemes as they reach the ground.

 For this week the theme is May.
The garden is full of these invasive Spanish Bluebells - they are nearly all blue but amongst them are one or two beautiful white ones.

This vintage box of talcum powder was a flea market find and I just love the beautifully decorated lid and decorative text!
