Canoe crazy day

Sunday saw thing 2 and I head off to our paddlesport club.  The day was sunny,  we were spending the day with lovely people,  going out on the river. ...what could be more perfect?

Ah yes. ..thing2 has just reminded me. ...we also had a bbq. Thing 2 loves his food. ...especially a bbq.

We took two Canadian canoes out and paddled quite a way. ..too far really.  You know that moment you realise you've still got to get back. ..eek

Thankfully another one of our group was coming back down the river in their speed boat.  Although not too speedy as we managed to grab onto either side and it towed both canoes back home.  Now that was a good idea! 

Blooming Marvellous

So many colours are unfurling themselves in my garden. So Beautiful.
I don't have enough space to really get into gardening but love filling pots eachv spring with plants whose names trip off the tongue,  like some foreign language.  I have no idea what they are and what they will look like when they bloom so every spring /summer is like an invasion in technicolour beautifulness.

But the best thing is watching the bees,  busying and buzzing around,  collecting the nectar as they go.  I love doing my bit for the bee population.
