Wildflowers in our Garden and A Playful Whale

Hello readers! I hope you had the most wonderful of weekends. I didn't get to test a recipe today unfortunately, I will try harder to make sure I test out a new recipe for you all next weekend. This week I present Wildflowers in our Garden and A Playful Whale. Enjoy x
Wildflowers in our Garden
I am starting to wonder if the wildflowers planted in our garden are a little confused as to what season it is - they are all in various stages of budding up or flowering but it isn't yet Spring here. Aren't they just beautiful? It's kind of exciting for us as some are producing flower for the first time, even though they have been planted out in the garden for 1-3 years now 

A Playful Whale
It has been a bumper whale watching season on the South Coast, these majestic creatures are cruising through our waters on their annual migration. We had the pleasure of watching a whale breach today, not just once but several times in a row. There were a couple of pods playing in the waters from the lookout and I have learnt what goes up............
must come down! 
Even though this amazing creature was some way off the shore line, you could hear the loud "thwack" sound as he slammed himself back down into the water. Truly amazing!

I hope you enjoyed these snaps from the weekend that was, being Wildflowers in our Garden and A Playful Whale. See you all on Wednesday for the next edition of Wednesday Wishes xo
