Unfortunately, June wasn’t as warm as April or May, and July doesn’t seem to be summery either… but while looking through the photos I took in June, I smiled when seeing the explosion of colours. Red and pink poppies from Dorset fields, flowery peonies, crimson sweet strawberries hand-picked at a local farm, and tons of healthy banana and oat pancakes I ate with seasonal fruits. In this blog post you’ll find a huge dose of vibrant photos that will give you some summery energy – because the weather outside won’t! – and…my healthy banana-and oat pancakes recipe. I promise you can eat them without feeling guilty of consuming too many calories.
I think I’ve made up my mind and will forever say that peonies – seasonal, summery flowers – are my favourites! Just look at this pink explosion!
