ibiza and formentera

It’s cold and rainy and hard to believe I was here last week. Great food, great beaches, great company. Lots of yoga, cycling and swimming in the sea. Cafe con leche and pan con tomate for breakfast and yummy seafood for dinner. I can’t wait to go back!

Autumn is such a pretty time of year. It almost makes up for the shorter nights and colder weather.

Possibly my favourite flower, even though some might call a weed. I love when cornflowers come into season. They always remind me of A Room with a View: “Miss Catharine, you have flowers in your hair!”

Went to the garden centre yesterday to revive our sorry looking window box.
Added chamomile, sage, thyme and a new parsley. Ta-da!
