Unfortunately I need to take some time away from blogging due to my own health at the moment. I am struggling with things, but have been trying to persevere and push through, however this is starting to become difficult to do on my own, so I may be gone for a few weeks until I am feeling more like myself again. Without going into too much detail I need to give myself some time to recover and return to a place where I’m feeling better again. I know I often come across as very upbeat on this blog but I also wanted to leave a note here saying it’s OK to know when to step back and take time for yourself, and right now I need to do that so I can get better and get back to the Tasha that I generally am. I always read your comments and appreciate every single one of them, and will be back to my usual self very soon. This may also extend to my usage on social media too, so if I go quiet for a while, it’s not because I’m ignoring everyone but rather that I need to take time to get well again, so bear with me and I will be back to blogging again soon.
This summer it’s been amazing to see the garden come to life in an array of different colours, shapes and textures. As always around this time of year the fuschia bush is in full bloom, with the wasps and bees loving the flowers, as well as the sedum which flourishes in bright pinks that light up beautifully in the midday sun. The lavender bush is still going strong too, with many butterflies and bees visiting it daily and the odd few sights of flatweed in it’s bright yellow colours, which pops up on the lawn every now and again now that the daisies have disappeared.
My Mum has also been busy planting flowers and there have been definite successes with brightly coloured poppies, the delicate blues of the ‘Love In A Mist’ nigella and the bright yellows and deep reds of the rudbeckia flowers, which might just be my favourite. There’s also been a brand new garden addition, a huge hollyhock, which has been steadily growing tall with the sunshine and has now bloomed with deep maroon coloured flowers. I’ve been spending a lot of time photographing them over the past couple of weeks, and thought it would be a good way to end the week with some of these photos, just before the height of summer ends and these flowers disappear for another few months.
I think this final photo is my favourite one of all, though I adore the rudbeckia ones as well (the deep red and yellow flowers). Here’s hoping these colourful blooms bring you all a little bit of that end of week joy that always comes around on a Friday.
Linking up with the lovely Jen for Photo Friday.
I hope you’ve all had a wonderful week and enjoy your weekends!
