List Making and some Wild Flowers

I've got a notion that I'd like to make some jam or something. My girls got me a jam making kit for my birthday last year and I've still not used it. Shocking right!!!!
So hopefully I'm going to get around to it this year. In fact that is on my list of things to do when I am on holiday. I really fancy making some lemon curd too - but there is only going to be me that eats it, maybe I'd better not make that then. I'd just be torturing myself :))

Talking about lists of things I want to do on holiday - I've got a lot of things planned. Places to go, shopping to do (don't tell Danny!!!), crafts that I'd like to try. I'm just wondering if two weeks will be long enough!!!

Anyway tonight Karen and I went for a wee walk.  It was just starting to rain so we didn't want to go too far just in case. But as it turns out the rain stopped.
I was marvelling at the wonderful wild flowers there are out there all different kinds and colours.
Here's a selection of the pictures I took.

Quite pretty aren't they?

I'm hoping to take my bicycle to the repair man in town tomorrow to check my tyres checked. I've not used my bike for quite a wee while and I'm keen to get back out on it. That's another thing on my list for the holiday :))

Have a great Sunday everbody.

PS. I had a few people wondering what the equivalent of a stone in weight was. Well it is 14lbs.  :)

Beautiful flowers!

Beautiful photos! What a gorgeous place to walk.

Beautiful wildflowers. I thought the purple flowers with red centers were a bit unusual. I think red and purple together is an awful combination but apparently God doesn't!!

Enjoy your holiday and be sure to put rest and relaxation on your list.

All are lovely Ellie, but that 4th flower is very interesting looking. Never saw one like this before!

The wildflowers are amazing. Due to dry weather, it's difficult to find any wildflowers this year. Perhaps you could make the jam and give it as a gift.
I am so overwhelmed by your shot. Everyone is beautiful and to think that you have access to those gorgeous flowers!

all the fussing and watering i do with all my "not wild flowers" and they don't look half as good as these!!

i adore riding my bike but it's been too hot lately!! it's good exercise, i think you will really enjoy it. sure and get a basket, for your camera!!
Beautiful photos: your world must be filled with flowers!
I've never made jam, but when I was a child, a neighbor used to make delicious grape jam every summer.
By the way, check my blog tomorrow: I'll be nominating you for a new award!
I love the wild flowers, so pretty. I know that you will enjoy making the jam, homemade is always tasty.

Beautiful pictures, Ellie! I want you to make lemon curd. It wouldn't be that bad for you, would it? I mean, it is a fruit...right?
Sheila said…
