5 Things I'm Loving Right Now

First thing's first...how pretty is this gate?! I came across it during a lovely long walk with my boyfriend on Sunday evening. We went on a long adventure through the woods and ended up at Caswell Bay, near Swansea. I love the long days in June; there's nothing better than going for a stroll on a summer's evening, and it made me think about all the things that I love at this time of year. So without further ado, here are five things that I'm loving right now!

1. Cosmeston Lakes Country Park
The countryside is so green and beautiful right now! We recently visited Cosmeston Lakes Country Park, a Nature Reserve in the Vale of Glamorgan, and enjoyed walking along the lake's edge on the boardwalk, and onwards through woodland and beautiful meadows. It was a warm and hazy summer's day; perfect for a relaxing walk.

 2. Watermelon Salad
I found this recipe here, and it's one of the nicest salads I've ever tried. Rosie is spot on when she says that this is quite simply the most delicious salad you'll try all summer! It's an unusual combination but somehow it just works; it's light, refreshing and very moreish. Next time I think I'd like to try it with mint leaves instead of coriander.

 3. Baby Swans
There are lots of swans nesting in Cardiff Bay and Penarth Marina, and it was so lovely to see the mother swans protecting their cygnets in the water. Their down feathers look so soft and fluffy!

4. Beautiful Flowers
I love flowers all year round, especially during the summertime. It's so nice to appreciate the colours and fragrances. I love the scent of honeysuckle, lilacs and roses in the summertime.

5. Long summer evenings

I love how it stays light so late, and you can see the colours changing in the sky as night draws in. It's too nice to stay indoors!

What are you loving right now? I'd love to hear! Thank you for reading, Angharad x
