Yay ! Our very first homegrown-from-seeds cherry tomatoes were ready to pick today ! We were so excited !
Obviously they were delicious ! What a joy to grow your own food (even though such a ridiculous part of it) ! We are so proud of our little plants & hope we'll be able to eat tons & tons of them all summer long !
Have a great week ahead, I hope you've all had a lovely weekend. Thank you for your visit.

Happy July everyone, and happy 4th of July to my American visitors ! Summer holidays have begun, my eldest turned 15 on June 24th, and took his very first exams on the 29th & 30th. I hope your summer (or winter) holidays are underway as well !
My buddleias have been hosting a bunch of winged visitors, and I wanted to share some photos of them here. I hope you'll like them.
I love how their wings seem to have been painted or drawn with pastels ... The one above is an Iphiclides podalirius (aka a scarce swallowtail or Flambé en français), with a worn out tail.
I hope this little post finds you happy & healthy. I'm considering posting old posts (from the same time but years ago) from past blogs of mine. Would you like it ?
