May Monday

We’re well into May now, and here we seem to have had nothing but showers! It hasn’t stopped me getting out too much though, but at times I was wishing for a sou’wester and galoshes!

Coming up this week:

WednesdayThose of you who follow us on Twitter may have seen our interactions with Susie Day, author of Pea’s Book of Holidays which I reviewed at length on Friday. For those of you who aren’t tweeting yet, here’s what she said:

Susie Day tweets usI always get so excited when properly famous people speak to us!

And with all that out of the way, I’ll end on a few photos from when it hasn’t been pouring with rain.

    Congrats on Susie Day’s compliment, Fiona. You definitely deserve it. I’m thinking about ordering “Pea’s Book of Holidays”.
    Beautiful shots as usual :)! I particularly like “Money growing on Trees”. Are those mushrooms?
    Also I was thrilled by your tricolore announcements about what will be on the blog this week. Really cool!

    Thanks, Chrissie. I hope you like Pea’s Book of Holidays if you get it. It is a good book!
    The money is actual money (though it isn’t unfortunately growing out of the tree!). There are a few of these in Scotland that I’ve seen where people take coins and hammer them into a tree. Sometimes it’s along the trunk in the bark, or this time it was into the middle of a cut-down tree. I assume one person starts it with a few coins then more and more visitors add to it over time. There were lots of British coins in it, but also some Euros.
