I know I posted sometime ago about how I find relaxing in my garden one of the best ways to unwind from the pressures of teaching (that and stroking cats) so I thought I'd post a few pictures taken over these last few sunny days to spread some serenity and summer smiles.
This is one of the entrances to my little wood.
Then this is the middle by the little stream.
I know it does look a bit like a jungle but it is so green and lush due to all the rainfall!!
Here is the view I love when I look up through the trees into the canopy. The light is so energising :)
And finally one just to prove that it is not all just green in my garden.
Part of my more cared for garden (I will be doing more weeding now the sun is here).
And before I go I am letting you know about a great free resource being posted by a very talented teacher - Cara - who has just started her new blog Cara's Creative Playground
She has created a blank face frame two page document for children who are learning about emotions - that allows the teacher or child to draw in the faces. Please click on the picture below to be taken to her webpage. It is an excellent resource for children with autism or those suffering from abuse or neglect to help learn about expressing and owning emotions.
Have a lovely weekend (what's left of it) and make sure you recharge your batteries. Tell me what you do to unwind - I'd love to know.
