Summer's such a lovely time for colours! I took the photo above at a local National Trust property, Coleton Fishacre in Devon.
Quite often when I visit here I don't go into the house. When I first used to come here many years ago, the house wasn't open to the public but when it was, I was one of the first to have a look around. We had to wear what looked like plastic carrier bags on our feet to protect the newly finished flooring.
I'm very pleased to say that's not the case these days. The house was near to closing for the day so we had a speedy look around the lovely art deco rooms, not much time for photo taking I'm afraid.
But I did take a quick photo in this room. I love wood and the beautiful wood on these chairs was just gorgeous.
The garden there's pretty lovely too with my favourite summer flower, delphiniums.

Such colour! ♥ I'm told these are called Penstemon.
Can you imagine little faery people living here by the stream? I can. :)
Summer's a busy time for me, not much chance to make any new paintings but I do have time to do a spot of this in the evenings....
This yarn is so soft ......and that colour?
Woolly people might like to see my project in progress here on Ravelry.
Thankyou for visiting today, I hope you have a lovely sunny weekend.xx
