Yorkshire Lavender

We went out to Yorkshire Lavender today--this time it was in bloom!
It smelled so good...

There were tons of bees all over the lavender

Ilkley Moor

Last Sunday after church we went out for a walk on Ilkley Moor. The heather's in bloom right now, and we had a nice sunny day, so it was perfect timing!

Queen Victoria's statue in Hyde Park, with the gardens in full bloom

I know soon enough it will be fall again--some of the leaves are already changing in Hyde Park--so I'm glad I got a few shots of Summertime Yorkshire :)

Wedding Gown & Jewelry

This weekend, we've made our first official wedding purchases! This is the dress I chose from Oxfam Bridal:

And today at Debenhams, we picked out my earrings and tiara. This picture isn't exactly what my earrings look like, but it's very close--they match the tiara.

The picture from the website doesn't really do it justice--I'll take some pictures of it on me. My crazy thick hair is coming in handy for once--I really pull off the tiara well!
