Flowers, A Treat and Toys on the Stairs

13 Jun

1   Heavy rain all night and I went out first thing to take these gorgeous photos of raindrops. Click to enlarge.

Raindrops on a poppy bud about to open

Fallen sepal with raindrops. This is my favourite today.

2    Today, Lucy and I used our Christmas present vouchers from KJ to have a massage each at St Michael’s Spa in Falmouth – beautiful smells and a great sense of relaxation.

3   While I was out, Mr S put the baby gates, the fireguard and the buggy back in the attic but he left the toys and the wet-suit that stay here on the stairs for me to see as I came in. Beautiful!

Toys and a wet-suit waiting to go upstairs until the next visit

    Lovely photos! I think we share a top “one of our favorite things” with the raindrops and dew drops. A little ditty I made up years ago about dewdrops: “Stars on the lawn, glisten until the morning and they are gone.”

    The poppies are beautiful – I like what Choc Chip Uru wrote…”Everything looks serene and beautiful” Blessings for a great day! ~Patty

    All your pics are so good, but I agree with you about the last one being the favourite. You really captured that beautifully.

      We once had a cat that stole small furry toys! Enjoy the rest of your week too. 🙂

            It is extremely dull here too and it is supposed to be 80mph winds later this evening followed by lots of rain 🙁

            Ahhh well there is nothing quite like a British Summer 🙂 lol Keep looking for your three beautiful things 🙂

            West Yorkshire is the best that I can offer you here, as I never reveal my exact location on the Internet 🙂

            BTW – It is raining and getting
            a tad windier by the minute 🙂 🙂

            Nor do I. The rough location is all I was interested in! So the rough weather is all the way from W Yorks to Cornwall. So it’s not just here which feels just a wee bit better! 🙂

            It’s not a bad day today just drizzle and a tad cold, so can’t complain when so many others have been flooded out 🙁

            Have a good day today my friend…

            Didn’t mean to be intrusive! It’s just that through my blog I’m meeting people from all over the world and I didn’t know which part of the world you were writing from. UK would have done and I should have realised from your comment about the British summer.

            Have a good day. I hope the wild weather has left you. It’s still with us! 🙂

            No it is absolutely fine I wasn’t thinking that you were being intrusive as I too have friends from all parts of the globe 🙂

            We’ve got wild gales and very, very heavy showers and sunshine in between. 🙂

            It is supposed to get worse here too, but the weather forecasts are not always accurate even with all the expensive technology that they use these days 🙁

            Are you watching England tonight? 🙂

            Hopefully we will play differently
            and be victorious for a change 🙂

            Well we can live in hope I guess? 🙂
            Have a wonderful rest of afternoon
            and an exquisite evening also 🙂

            Wasn’t it great? The last 10 mins or so were edge of the seat stuff though just in case…..
            Hope you’ve had a good day. 🙂

    That poppy is beautiful! Such a pretty color!

    I’ve never had a massage. I want one sooo bad, haha.

      A massage really is very special. Someone might treat you or perhaps you’ll just treat yourself! 🙂

    Isn’t that the very best? Sue and I went twice for a back, neck & shoulder massage. Love pink poppies.

      It was a back, shoulder, neck one that we had too – very relaxing – and such lovely teas to choose from afterwards! 🙂
