Nature Table & Bathsheba's Posy


 It was a glorious morning here so while walking the grumpy Scottie through the footpaths that straddle Wiltshire and Berkshire I picked a hand-full of freshly emerging leaves and weeds for my natures table....

 


the horse chestnut candles are nearly over..well the ones i could reach were...



 beautiful scented apple blossom..a tiny sprig...






 the fresh green on some leaves is breathtaking, as well as the varied assortment of reds and bronzes....



I  made a woodland wedding posy when i got home...just for fun....
it brought to mind Tess and Bathsheba from Thomas Hardy...country girls....simple pleasures..its sitting on my mantle piece  in an old pressed glass vase with candlelight around..and looks divine.

I hope you all got out in the sunshine today.

NB. Please note we are having a lovely new floor fitted tomorrow ( Monday) so will be shut. Open on Tuesday 9am sharp!!
