Not a Lot of Quilting Going On
The Poppies having been opening up for about a month now and the fields are slowly but surely turning red with them. We have a few in the courtyard and this is a photo I took last year. The farmers are beginning to cut the hay and I hope that our fields will be cut sometime this week. The grass is so tall that Magic won't go through it. Hurts her eyes she says. The temperature today is going to hit 31°C so finally it is pool time. DH has put up the parasol, we are eating more salads than stodge and last night I was sitting under the walnut tree with my glass of wine at 10.30 pm listening to the cicadas and the nightingales and wishing my camera worked! I think I can safely say that summer has, at long last, arrived. This photo was taken some years ago with the original traditional camera. Standing in our courtyard looking through the door to the terrasse. The pool is through the door and on the right. Forgot to say. Its my favourite time of year - Chelsea Flower Show. For those of you without access to the BBC, you can take a virtual tour here. There are some stunning gardens this year. Take a look at the Urban Oasis Garden. Wow! Fancy that in your back yard?
