in the garden...




Its been stinkin hot here in Blighty over the last week, which is very welcome indeed as I'd all but given up hope of ever seeing the sun again. Lots of flowers are emerging in the garden, planted by the previous occupant {which is most odd, as I have no idea whats coming}. We ate all day and had naps in between.


finally I got the chance to bung some seeds in the soil and put some plants in rusty buckets etc...

Husbondo helped me to paint my shed, its a kind of putty colour, but white on the inside as before.









Our new bedroom gets a lovely afternoon sun through the widow, which once you hit the bed, its quite a struggle to get up again.


...but we did, and we had a barbecue...mushies, asparagus and sweetcorn...the usual!


and I made a fruit salad, with figs and mint in it.


I love summer, but in Britain you have to make the most of the few days of sun.
More sunny weather action coming up in soon....

  2. Aboslutely STUNNING array of flowers, it must be a lovely suprise when a new unexpected type appears! It's amazing how they shoot up in the heat isn't it? Long may it continue!

  4. Perfect way to enjoy these sunny days! Your shed looks so cosy in that spot. Your cat is super cute and the flowers and plants looks beautiful. I've been working on the garden too but the previous occupants didn't care at all, all they left were weeds, rubbish and a poor lawn (not to mention burnt patches with the bbq and chicken bones everywhere yuk!) although we are renting I can't stand a sad garden and so we are working hard to bring some life in this neglected space.
