This weeks My Sunday Photo is of my favourite flower the Gerbera. This orange one has just popped out a few days ago on my kitchen windowsill.

When I’m standing over the sink washing the pots and pans I love to see the flowers on my windowsill. I also have my cactus on there and a succulent that my mum gave us when we moved in.
Come to think of it apart from the bedroom wi does all of the other windowsills have some type of house plant on them. My orchids are at the back of the house as the front faces the sun too much in the Summer and it gets too warm for them. Here is my 7 Hints and Tips on Caring for Orchids .
 
 
I hope you have a lovely Bank Holiday weekend.

My Sunday Photo 22/05/2016

Hello, this is My Sunday Photo. On Friday I recieved a lovely package from Canada from my sister. It ws full of baby clothes for baby girl ( which i will show you later in the week! ) and all these chocolate eggs for my husband and I. Unlike the eggs here in the UK which are foil wrapped, these eggs are in little plastic cases which split in half to open. Such a genius idea!
I don’t like Cadbury Creme Eggs, so my husband had them. Canadian Cadbury chocolate tastes different from the UK chocolate, in my opinion it’s not as nice. I would go as far to say it’s more of an atificial flavour.
The Fudgee eggs were the best. A superb fudgy centre, very chocolately and similar to a ganache. I got to have the Oreo one as well. That was very yummy.

Have you tried American or Canadian chocolate before? 

What did you think of the taste?

My Sunday Photo – 15/05/2016

This week with the warmer Cornish weather the sun has brought out my red azalea bush. It really is a gorgeous colour. My pink azalea is more in the shade so has yet to bloom. I forgot to take a photo of the white one in my garden. I just love the bright colours of azaleas. They just make me feel happy!

Word of the Week 13/05/2016 – Cornwall

This week I have chosen Cornwall as my Word of the Week. The reason I have chosen Cornwall is because it’s one of the most beautiful places in the country to live. I know I’m biased but I just cannot help it. I love to appreciate the natural beauty surrounding me everyday. So looking back through my blog pictures over the past year I have presented you with some of the best.
Today is a lovely hot sunny day which actually made me think of writing up this post for you. These photos were all took within a few miles of where I live. I feel lucky to be on maternity leave this Summer to enjoy Cornwall at it’s best.

My Sunday Photo 08/05/2016

For this weeks My Sunday Photo I have chosen a photo that my husband took yesterday while going out on a fishing boat at Newquay. I love the blue/green colour of the water. It wasn’t the most sunniest of days but my husband still came back with the face of a lobster!
