Posts of the Day – June 2014

Flowers4The results of the Language Lovers competition, organised by Lexiophiles and bab.la, came out in June. Congratulations to all the winners, many of whose articles have already featured as a post of the day. However,  a lot of my favourite blogs didn’t even make it to the nomination stage, something I’m planning on rectifying next year. These include Translation Wordshop by Marie Brotnov and Lines from a Linguist by Claire Cox. They both appear twice in this month’s list and had posts included in the May list as well.

The other articles below are all ones in my blogroll (now containing well over 150 entries) that caught my attention whilst outside in the garden the roses started to bloom and our best strawberries ever filled our dessert bowls (just in time for Wimbledon). I’ll soon be swapping my small but adored patch of land for a much larger plot with far more potential to grow fruit and vegetables. But I’ll really miss this place I have spent the past seven years turning into a haven for birds, bees and butterflies, and which has attracted a fair number of other creatures too, hopping and scurrying about in search of food. Let’s hope the future holds good things for us all.
