June was a very hot month here in the UK and I cannot believe that we are already half way through the year. We have a very old peony in our garden which we took with us when we moved house. In June it always flowers and never disappoints.
Earlier in the month we enjoyed a lovely weekend away in Norfolk to celebrate my husband's birthday. Whilst away we visited a lovely National Trust property called Blickling Hall and the rhododendron's were stunning. I think they were the tallest ones we have ever seen.
Also in June it was my birthday and I made a carrot cake which was delicious. The recipe was from this book . We also celebrated by going away for the weekend in Derbyshire which was idyllic.
We enjoyed a lovely cycle ride along the Ashby canal and it's alway nice to see baby swans.
Whilst in Derbyshire we visited a lovely National Trust property called Calke Abbey . After exploring the house and gardens we also enjoyed some cycling whilst we were there. We cycled along the tramway trail which takes you all around the estate through woodland, farmland and park land.
Thanks for stopping by and until next time.
