I don't know how many of you have ever been to the Lake District here, but it is absolutely beautiful, even in the rain. This is a photo of Lake Windermere, on one of the few sunny days we had:

We had some good weather, one day when it rained after we went out so we ended up getting soaking wet (even the kagools couldn't keep out the rain, we were soaked right through!), another day when we couldn't go out at all and the rest of the time is was cloudy and overcast. All in all, typical British summertime weather! I took loads of photos, annoying my children in the process as they kept having to wait for me to catch them up when we were out walking, and we certainly did lots of walking. I had the aches and pains to prove it!

This is a view of Coniston water:

And was taken whilst walking from Coniston Jetty back into Coniston. Fortunately, it was not raining for us, although it definitely looks as if it is raining in the hills!

Anyhow, I thought you might like a couple of freebies, so here are some stock photos with one overlay (in colour and desaturated) freebie for you. the photos are from flowers in our garden, so you have my husband's green fingers to thank for these!

Feel free to use these as you will, commercial use and scrap for hire use is OK, just don't repackage and claim them as your own.

Download the stock photos here and the overlay here.

    Such beautiful flowers and the pictures are superb! I just love flowers. Probably has something to do with my grandmothers flower garden. She had the greenest green thumb. She would have oohed and aahed over your pictures, just like me. Thank you so much for sharing the pictures as well as bringing back such good sweet memories!
