Wow, Lemon & Cow



I might have told you already, I know I told a few at least, that our Miss Lemon had flowers. I spend some time playing ”Bee” this past week, no I didn’t buzz or sting. But I tried to get each flower to become a Lemon for us. Sadly six out of Seven flowers didn’t quite catch. I have never done this sort of thing before, Miss Lemon the first who sadly isn’t at Pake Rose anymore  had no flowers. I was a bit sad to see so many petals fall to the ground....

Kingsday Today

A good day for shopping



As you might know we are not BIG spenders. Our budget simply  doesn’t allow it. But I’m also glad that  neither one of our three hearts is set on it. So on occasion we visit a charity shop, which is usually at my request I have to say ;) All in the hope of finding something great in need of a second life...

Blossoming Lemons


Our Spring fairy is sitting under a blossoming tree, or what once was a tree. We’ve had huge and powerful winds that took down many trees here in the village where Pale Rose cottage stands. A real shame but also an opportunity to bring some of those fallen flowers indoors to enjoy...
