This and That

This is the book I've just finished reading, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society.  It's a good book and I really enjoyed it.


I was able to sit out in the garden yesterday and finish it.  The weather was just wonderful, note the sun lotion and the temperature - 86.5 degrees.  Now that's what I call hot but not unbearably hot.  All was peaceful as I sat there reading in the sun.  I hate the sound of electric lawnmowers and strimmers with a passion but yesterday I didn't hear a one of them, it was bliss.


And this is one of our colourful, loaded to the brim, hanging baskets.  William makes them up each year, waters them and the rest of the garden for that matter, and I do the dead-heading.

I hope to be back later with more photos from our holiday in Devon.

It sounds just wonderful. I'm afraid that it's already so oppressively hot here that even early morning adventures outside are not as pleasurable as they should be. I will just vicariously enjoy yours.
