A quick post today written in between resting after a walk through our local woods and preparing for a belated birthday meal as our eldest son is now home from uni.
I've been admiring these stunning yellow fields as I've been driving around this week and how beautiful the dark trees look against the vivid colour of the rapeseed oil. They are in full bloom around here but I noticed on Friday afternoon as we drove to Sheffield that they were only just beginning to come out further north. This afternoon it was lovely to stretch our legs and take in the views of these yellow fields from inside as well as outside the woods.
Dappled sunlight shone through the trees and sparkled on the water and the sky was a magnificent blue with just a few fluffy clouds for interest. We saw our first bluebells of this spring and a gorgeous mass of delicate white flowers. I don't know their name but they were a delight especially as there was just the one clump of them. We found a bench to stop, stare and listen to the sounds of nature.
I love our walks and hope we can fit more in soon. Today really was a treat and I can't wait to return to these woods soon when hopefully they will be ablaze with bluebells. Over the next few days I hope to get started with removing the lawn from our small garden so I'm hoping this pleasant weather continues. Wish me luck...
I've been writing this blog now for eighteen months and still thoroughly enjoy sharing my simplifying journey with you. Just to let you know, I have decided to do the occasional sponsored post but only when I believe that the brand fits in with this blog and its readers. I like finding inspiration for my home on the web especially when its stylish and well priced so I hope you might find them useful too but I respect the fact that there may be different views on this. My ideals on minimalism and consumerism haven't changed but I still need to buy the occasional item and I guess you do too. My sponsored posts will be clearly labelled.
Thank you for reading, following and commenting here and have a great week xo
