We've had such a lovely day!
'Homespun' Fair in full swing... and very busy!
There were gorgeous goodies from Gertie and her daughter.
Kirsty's lovely handmade items.
Jane's wonderful array of vintage toys, books, homewares etc
Amanda's lovely displays
And then we took a break... and went walkies!!!
Just roll down the hill and you'll find
Christine's stunning shop, 'The Sea Garden'.
I could not get inside; it was sooo busy!
So, we decided to have an early lunch and then, 'walk it off!'
We lunched here...
We took the coastal path and admired the views
but it wasn't long before I spotted..
I have not seen Orchids growing wild for quite a while...
until last week. Lo and behold, on the grass verge near to where I live,
there they were.
And now here as well...so a bit like buses really!
Made my day!!
This walk is a treat!
Next up...along the hedgerow we found many patches of these...
We're still not too sure which caterpillars these are.
Wild Arum..I have not see that for ages either.
The duck, rooted to the spot and not real of course ...but fun!
There was so much more..Pink and Red Valerian ;
Thrift ; Lilac; Wild Strawberry.
It all made me very happy
..as you can see!
I really hadn't expected a nature walk as well as a vintage fair!!
But that's what I got!
We went back to the fair, for a second bite at the goodies!
All in all, a fabulous day!
Thanks to Christine, Jane and Gertie for organising another
lovely Homespun fair!
And finally, thanks to Mr S for such a great day!
