sunday seven #25 & 26

A collection of photos from the past couple of weeks. Hope you enjoy them & will click a pic to see the captions!

If you’d like to share what you’ve been up to that might not rate a full blog post, just click over to Natalie’s Sunday Sevens page.

Edited 27 July: You can also hover over each photo to view the caption, but if you’re not seeing all the words, just click a pic to go to the full screen view, then push Escape to return to this view. The glorious red zinnia dahlia (it’s a dahlia, dah-ling ~ what can I say?) in the BBC Women’s Hour photo is from Bestie Samantha’s garden several years ago & set as my screen photo each summer.

    As for your lovely photos….I just clicked on the marvelous bouquet, it come up full sized with arrows for scrolling through. That IS a funny loaf. And a chemical smell? Oh no! I’m sorry yours has been so uncooperative, will be anxious to hear the company’s response. Love the hats!

      Thank you, Jen! Am still working the issue & got bread from the grocery this week. Not to worry! Such is life. 😉 Glad you got the full effect, so to speak, by clicking!

    Love the lop sided loaf, gives it character. Love that you still have the cushion covers I sent way back when 😀 Super love bouquet, you lucky lady. Nothing quite like receiving flowers, especially when they are a total surprise. I should have plenty to cut from the garden soon, the dahlias are coming on a treat 🌼

      Thank you, Lovely One! My loaf unfortunately also produced a very strong chemical smell from the machine, which didn’t sit well with my insides, I’ve tossed it out, and written in a message to the supplier. The flowers were brought when my grocery order was delivered improperly and it took another 4 hours before it was received in proper condition. So not really happy occasions, but such is life these days.

      Yes, of course I still have & use those luscious silk pillow covers you sent, and put the gorgeous red zinnia photo from your garden up each summer for my desktop. Enjoy them both each day and think warm thoughts about the dear person who sent them to me. Hope you get better fastest! 💋💋💋

    I’m back! It worked over there! Loving the half fry and the cute dish it’s served up on. And the wonky….is it a muffin?? Whatever you’ve baked it in would be perfect to cook Yorkshire puddings in! And the bouquet… You lucky lady, what a lovely surprise 💐💐💐💐 xx

      It’s a loaf of bread, actually…😳 Honestly, don’t think I should try puds in a bread machine. Next time we’re chatting ask me about that bouquet… 😉 Am totally gob-smacked at your latest post, you little ( you’re positively t-i-n-y!) seamstress, you! 😘

          This is true, Felicia ~ thank you! Sometimes the pic is small & my caption large, or people’s pointer icon covers some words (like mine does) so I sometimes omit the hovering. 😉
          Thank you also for commenting on cushions & hats. The orange hat actually came from this area, but was purchased during a trip in 2011 or 12.
          The dark green cushion covers are silk, from M&S, as sent by my Lovely Bestie Samantha over at
          Hope you’re staying cool!
