Southern summer flowers and morning sunshine!

I have been reading some delightful potter's blogs recently and enjoying news of life in Devon and Scotland. It would seem that winter in the UK is rather cold and snowy at the moment, so I thought that I would post some sunshine and summer flowers on my site to compensate!

The view across farmland to the hill was taken from our front doorstep first thing this morning. I have cropped out the main road from the front of the picture (who needs them!).

I took some photos yesterday evening in our garden of flowers and some fruit. There are apples that will be ready in a few weeks, and a quince growing amongst the red berries of a viburnum.


  1. Oh this is beautiful!! Everything looks so lush and i LOVE those flowers in the photo.

  2. Hi Neelam,
    good to hear from you, I'm glad you enjoyed the photos of our summer flowers. Thank you for your comment on this blog, you will see that I have not updated the blog for a long time, most of what we do now is on the Peters Pottery site, which you will find at www.opopots.blogspot.com
