I picked up this little blue glass vase for a snip - it was a pure impulse buy as I was completely lured by the colour! 
 In the garden this week these bright orange Mombretia were just about coming to an end but I managed to salvage a few for the vase.   Being complimentary colours blue and orange just work so well together and I love this colour combo, although I find a little goes a long way.

On one of the few sunny, summery days we've had lately, and let's face it there haven't been that many, I decided to flake out on the lawn with a good book, a jug of lemonade and an ice cream!  As I gathered together all I would need for the arduous task of relaxing, it all started to look rather appealing - so out came the camera!  I put to good use the daisies that hadn't been mown for weeks and made a daisy chain, although unlike my childhood days I needed a pin and pair of reading specs!

Hope you are all having a wonderful summer!
