Flowers in the house of wet shoes


Tosca and Flossie are in heaven because their beloved street auntie Sandra, from two doors down when we lived in Newcastle, is here with husband Dave, staying for a few days. We have been thoroughly rained on in some beautiful scenic spots, but we are having a lovely time.


Rather late in the day, this post, due to a failing memory and a busy day taking our visitors out and about in Somerset in the wettest April on record. Here are my Monday flowers in the house pictures, as requested by Jane.

Only some wayside flowers today, all gathered within half a mile of my house, the supermarket tulips having failed to live up to their early promise.

Two photographers, two different cameras; not that the companion and I compete, you understand.


The flowers are in the bathroom.



Some are in the dining room, with its difficult lighting.


Wild flowers seem to enjoy cold wet conditions. Odd, isn't it.

Lovely Rachel....on all counts!

You know I love that vase you used in the loo and the wildflowers are charming.

As are the little vases in the dining room.

Now dry those feet and have something lovely to drink.

You found masses! I'd be hard put to it to find more than the odd dandelion yet ... but it was sunny and warm today , so I might be able to make a little daisy bouquet eventually .

I have a little patch of lily-of-the-valley. If it stops raining for long enough, I will go out to pick some!

I love all the little tender flowers! I wish there were more like them in the Flower Market. That's really bringing the outdoors IN!

I have the urge to put those little vases in my mouth and let them roll around. They look delicious. and I love that wallpaper just behind Buddha, as well.

A beautiful post, I like the way you have used your flowers in separate little containers.

Do make sure that you and your visitors dry your feet thoroughly after walking, we don't want any sickness, do we?

Beautiful. Your wildflowers are way ahead of ours. Did I spy Honeysuckle already!

We do have primroses and stitchwort - both favourites. And isn't the weather absolutely GRIM?

I like your pictures of trains. I miss the train I used to take to work in Philadelphia.
