Good afternoon my sweetlings,
It's been a little quiet around these parts, I hope you all are having a lovely July! These past few weeks have been a little difficult, I got hit by a major case of the girly monster which really put me out of action for a week. It was like living with a very emotionally prone Ogre I think, not very nice at all. However the sun is now shining and the storm is over, I feel much better now and I've been journalling like mad, making paint butterflies and video chatting and laughing with my lovely teacup Steffie. Speaking of my little teacup she has a new website, go and check it out! Tiny Owl Knits, so proud of her ♥ Mwah! Hoot hoot!
Today I was going to go out berry picking with my friend but he told me there aren't many out yet so we're all going to go in a few weeks when there are more. I decided to just take a stroll in the sunshine by myself and listen to music as a wiffled along, it was lovely. I managed to pick a few blackberries, enough for the Apple and Blackberry crumble I want to make in any case, and I found a tiny little crab apple (I think) and a nice stick.
When I got home I took my cauldron outside, I just use a teacup which is covered in flowers, it works perfectly for what I want it for. I put in dried rose petals, fennel and cinnamon as well as one of the blackberries I picked. I finally realised my photo editing program actually has a GIF maker on it, I don't know how I missed that!
Little Sage, all my herbs are doing fantastically which I'm so happy to see.
Willowherb on the left, I love how you can see all the hairs on it in this picture. Ever growing cacti on the right, that one in the back has become a certified beast!
Aloe Vera is growing nicely outside.
It's a Verbscum, also known as Mullein. Thank you to my wonderful reader Jan, a very clever gardener indeed! On the right you can see my gigantic fennel, the base and stalks are so thick now.
Our blackberry plant has a modest load ripening on it.
Hello! I rarely ever wear these glasses, they're technically my spare pair even though I actually adore them. I call them my Harry Potter glasses because I think they make me look like a little bit of an owl! I've been on a total Harry Potter kick these past few weeks.
I also have to share this video with you, how fantastic is he? I can't stop laughing at this, so amazing.
