The Summer seems to be stretching on, another wave of very hot days is here. Now, the heat keeps me from the garden but for the early morning hours when I wander, hose in hand, under the blue-ing sky. I am especially besotted with the yarrow that is blooming in the garden; its tiny flowers daisy-like with their little white petals and yellow centres. An ancient plant, said to stand for health and inspiration, I'd love to capture its simple beauty somehow before its flowers fade.

Tiny & sweet yarrow flowers.
Loving // The tiny, daisy-like flowers of ancient yarrow.
Eating // Jam drops with sticky, golden centres of apricot jam.
Drinking // ... in the quietness of home on Summer's weekend mornings.
Feeling // A little Summer weary.
Making // Sailor tops and chocolate cakes (a perfect combination!)
Thinking // ... of stitching a cluster of tiny yarrow flowers on the wide hem of my sailor top.
Dreaming // ... of the gorgeous handmade projects in this lovely magazine.
