Lavender’s Blue, dilly dilly……

Lavender’s Green, When I am King, dilly dilly, You shall be queen….

Or so the nursery rhyme goes! This English folksong always reminds me of flowers – I used to sing it to my boys when they were babies!

The bees are visiting the garden every day now – industriously collecting pollen, and the flowers are all starting to bloom, including the lavender which grows on my patio.

Here is my tiny slice of life, showing you where I live each week for a year as part of this photography/bullet journal challenge.  My Lupins (favourite flower) are coming in to their own (visited by the bees) and the lavender will soon be spectacular.

The weather is not great – the sun seems to be a stranger much of the time and there are frequent showers but I suppose this is good for the plants – if not the humans!

Why don’t you join in? – it would be great to see the diversity of different places in the world.  If you are interested in this challenge then leave a comment and we can link them all together on Instagram.  Just tag #myspotonearth followed by your own local tag if you like.  Let’s make the virtual a reality! #theeastgateproject 💕

My Little Spot on Planet Earth

As I mentioned in my last post, which you can see here I am hoping to capture a photograph each week of my surroundings and what they mean to me.  So, first off, here I am – this is me, in Eastgate – a little rural hamlet in North Norfolk, UK.

 

It is 30th May 2016 and as you will see below, the weather is kinda grey (and none too warm!)  Never mind.

This is my lane (well the one I walk up and down most days).  There are several houses and farms and lots of open countryside, which is amazing.

A New Start

Hello there and thanks for tuning in!  I have been writing a blog now for a few years, firstly for my own amusement, picking up friends and followers along the way and I have loved interacting with people who have written to me or left me a comment.

I have been using another platform for my ramblings since the beginning, but have recently switched to Word Press and thought this would be a good time for a bit of a relaunch – a new start so to speak.  Read More »

Lettering in a Wreath

I have been learning this technique by following @therevisionguide on Instagram and Pinterest – check them out here and here as the drawings and doodles are brilliant both for hand lettering and also bullet journaling (my latest passion – of many!)

I got some more beautiful Tombow Dual Brush Pens for my birthday recently – lucky me! so i have been busy practicing my brush lettering.

Some brilliant blogs and websites to get tutorials on brush calligraphy include Sharisse at Pieces Calligraphy and Dawn Nicole Designs but there are loads of great artists out there, especially on Instagram so if you are interested, check them out!

Some of these last doodles will probably end up in my bullet journal!  Do you like lettering?  Are you a beginner like me?  I’d love to hear from you so just leave me a comment below.
Happy Lettering!
