June is my favourite month. You know why?

Because my beautiful roses start blossoming in June, that’s why!

Here they are:

This rose I brought in a little pot from Hever Castle 7 years ago and it never fail to delight me ever since. Here is is “before and after”, i.e. in buds and now in full flowering glory


This little beauty called “Irish Eyes” changes it’s colour from red to orange to yellow while it blossoms:


My mother-in-law gave this red rose to me for my birthday and just look at it!


And these are some of the other beautiful blooms I enjoy every time I go out to my garden.

Panda cushion, made by me :)

Finished this cushion cover a couple of days ago and I must say, I really enjoyed making it. Pandas are very cute but it’s tricky to keep them that way with applique technique! I think I managed this time 🙂
