Fun, Farms & Crafternoons

Just a few pics of our last few days...
 Stems of the chard we harvested from our community farm where we go every Saturday to weed, water, pick and picnic! Amazing colours and very delicious, especially made with this recipe for Sicilan chard (being half Sicilian, rather appropriate too!).
I love this picture Isabella drew of me, herself and her brother. Such a treasure.

And this is us at the Mayfield Lavender fields - one of our favourite places.

We are carrying on with our Crafternoons...

Making a mosaic elephant...
Tracing round our bodies and decorating them!
And making fingerbobs (remember those?).

Hope you have had a good weekend...I'll be back in the middle of the week...hope to see you then!
