Bluebells, guerilla gardening and a picnic


Hello!
Happy Bank Holiday Monday.
Gosh but it's been the most glorious of days here in Leeds,
Today was always going to be a family day for us, and a much needed one at that.
A time to play. A time to smile again.
Grief is a strange thing. Sometimes it makes you cry and at other times laugh.
We're slowly coming to terms with our loss, but it isn't easy.
One thing that I wanted to do in honour of my father in law was create a little woodland flower patch in a secluded area that meant something to him and to us.
So I bought some Kabloom seed bombs to hopefully turn into a beautiful nook beside a pond.
A place to contemplate and remember. And a place for butterflies and bees to feast upon.
We threw our floral grenade and are keeping our fingers crossed that when we return we'll have had some success!

We also enjoyed a picnic in the park with a stuffed Italian bread made with roasted veg, spinach, mozzarella and basil. We lay around in the sun drinking (alcoholic) ginger beer and played in the park.
And it was beautiful to see the first flourishes of springtime bluebells too.
We've had a pretty perfect afternoon together.
Sadly, it's all back to work and school tomorrow - boo!
I hope you've all enjoyed your bank holiday too. x
