Late blooms....

Well, I'm not sure what's happened to the poppies this year, but after the glorious display last summer, numbers have definitely dwindled this time round.....would it be the dry Spring that's to blame? I really don't here to see how fab they were last June (sigh).  It seems to be the year of the day-lily...we have plenty of those about to sprout; will post some piccies once they arrive.

- we stayed in Pembrokeshire, and visited the pretty harbour town of Tenby whilst we were there....I LOVE all the pastel coloured houses along the front :)

- we were very much pampered at the B&B  -  a tasty breakfast every morning, a spacious room complete with bathrobes and slippers, and these cheery blooms were left in our room just for me; tulips - my favourite! :)

Now, with a much-needed battery recharge, it's back to the drawing board for off I go :)
