|no basket ball this summer|
It was beautifully warm when
we went out cycling this morning through the woods. In fact the woods have disappeared. They have been cropping the chestnut again
and there were just a few tall pines left.
Everything will soon grow back though. I saw a young fox run out in
front of us and then disappear along one of the woodland tracks. We dropped steeply down into the valley and
the temperature suddenly turned quite icy before we climbed Scotsman’s Hill and
came out again into the warm sunshine.
“Scotsman’s bottom was very
cold this morning wasn’t it,” Paul said.
I nearly fell off my bike giggling after he said that.
The heat is rising as the
day progresses. I picked strawberries
and raspberries and we had lunch on the terrace. I have spent the afternoon mooching around
the garden, dead heading the roses, reading a bit, and just absorbing the
sights and sounds of summer. Laaaaazy!

Everything looks beautiful and peaceful there! I especially love the picture of the sparrow. :)ReplyDelete
It would be peaceful if the sparrows didn't make so much noise!Delete
I like the look of your bed area for the afternoon.ReplyDelete
My favourite spot for chilling out.Delete
We have two pots of the same petunias. Now I know what they are! I like anything with colourReplyDelete
Paul chooses the petunias and I get to choose the geraniums.Delete
Sounds idyllic to me - what better way to spend the days?ReplyDelete
We are lucky,it's a pretty good life.Delete
Hope the bottom warmed up nicely.ReplyDelete
Always chilly there in the morning.Delete
I put Busy Lizzies in some of our pots, then when Lad M returned from Oz, she took them all out and replaced them with Petunias. I'm not good with flowers.ReplyDelete
Paul likes to do his own thing, I don't interfere too much.Delete
May is my best month for sights, sounds, scents, and smells from farm fields.ReplyDelete
Your home is very pretty; seems very peaceful there too.
Greetings Maria x
I think May and June are my favourite months.Delete
It all looks idyllic - not so with 'sounds' though when i think of Scotsman's Bottom!ReplyDelete
Perhaps we should re-christen it Fern Gully or something more poetic!Delete
I wanted to say it was idyllic, too, but many comments have already used that description already! I long for some heat, here. I hope you enjoyed yourself that afternoon, taking it all in. -JennReplyDelete
It's a beautiful part of the world, far from the madding crowd.Delete
The Scotsman must have been wearing his kilt!ReplyDelete
