Summertime

We harvested the first of our strawberries this week, all six of them! Rosie was very interested in the process and spent quite a while just sniffing them, she wouldn't try eating them but that just meant more for me...

The roses are looking particularly gorgeous this year:

As is the clematis that's grown over my water butt.

Thank you all for the comments on my sewing room. It's not normally that tidy, I'd had a friend over for a stitching session so it had been all picked up.

Rosie's so cute -- sniffing the strawberries! I hope she decides to try them someday too. :D Your roses are just gorgeous!!

You won't be able to stop her eating them once she starts

Your sewing room is so organized. I wish I had a space that big. Now those flowers are just beautiful. Rosie is so cute. Those pictures are so precious.

Rosie is so adorable! Are your strawberries coming in late this year. Ours are here in Michigan - just haven't had the best weather! Your roses are beautiful too.

The roses are lovely and so is Rosie! Do you use the water in your water butt? Someone suggested that we install water barrels at our house but I know nothing about them.

Just love her expression - no one's pulling anything over on this little lady! LOL!!

The strawberries look delicious! We were overjoyed when we discovered the previous owners of our new place had left some strawberry plants (now we look forward to spring!). Your garden is looking wonderful - I've always liked clematis but it would suffer terribly in my Perth garden! The roses are just beautiful too, just like Rosie!

Love both pics of Rosie, especially smelling the strawberries (personally I think they smell better than they taste - unless they are with meringues and cream!).
Your plants are looking great - very colourful :)

What a gorgeous young lady eating her strawberries among a beautiful backdrop of roses and clematis :)

Rosie is darling - haven't checked your blog in quite a long time - I was so excited for you that you have a wool shop in your village now - awesome and it looks very nice. I'm doing a Noro scarf now out of Yuzen - had never seen it before but our LYS got a few colors of it. I must have your MC Americana case is stunning Karoline - it is lovely. Your attic room is delightful - what a great place to entertain stitching friends. cheers! Melody

Rosie is the sweetest flower of them all. :)

Both Rosie and roses are stunning! But I must admit Rosie's my favourite :o)

The flowers are so beautiful! As is Rosie - who is growing up entirely too quickly!
