It’s been a while hasn’t it? I’m still alive and getting through all that life throws at me. So much has happened since I last blogged three months ago!

I remember thinking I could be one of those regular bloggers who maintained an up to date blog full of all sorts of lovely things but then reality kicked in. I have uni and assignments that make me far more stressed than I should allow and I have practical experiences in schools that leave me so exhausted by the end of the day and I have a lovely family and beautiful friends who I want to talk to and spend time with.

Life for me is crazy at the moment and I think what makes it the hardest is that I haven’t really found my rhythm yet. I feel as though I have hit the wall with my studies and my assignments (which really aren’t that hard) make me feel like I am tackling Mt Everest! I think 5 years of university in a row is far too much for my brain. But I will stick it out.

Life must continue and I would like to find my rhythm wherever it is. I’ll let you know when I find it.

But in the meantime I will always find my little joys like these flowers. They’re zinnias and I grew them from seed. They have to be the most satisfying flowers to grow. They just pop right out of the soil and grow so vigorously and produce long stemmed, bright, happy blooms that are perfect in a vase inside. I love the way there seems to be tiny little yellow flowers around the centre of each one…ooh and the colours! Pink, yellow, red, orange, white, peach, orange and every colour in between!

My zinnia plants are growing in the bed where I had my old tomato plants.

The garlic is still chugging along in there and I’ve also got some californian poppies and some pink and white everlasting daisies (also known as paper daisies!). The curly parsley has just died so I’ve scattered some heartsease seeds to fill in the gaps. They’re my new favourite flower!

Fresh flowers always brighten my day! What’s been brightening yours?
