♥ 52 Weeks of Happy ♥ 21/52

Hello lovelies, 
all my happy things pictured here are from yesterday, it was a particularly happy day.

1. My eldest telling me that the first poppy had opened in the morning. I love that he noticed and I love these flowers...they had their own post last year :0)

2. Getting ready for a family barbecue, recycling last years diamond jubilee bunting  ....I love any sort of bunting.

3. Making simple accompaniments for  barbecue food ( Mr BM and his brother take charge of the grill ) ....this is Ratia ....I made it with mint from the garden ....perfect with spicy food .We also ate the first homegrown lettuce of the year.

4. We were blessed with wonderful warm sunshine yesterday, but when the sun went down and it got a bit chilly, sitting round the chiminea, chatting with my boys and their cousins was wonderful.
A day to treasure.
