Yesterday afternoon I was looking after my little grandson, Charlie. It was a beautiful day, the sun was shining and it was hot. I decided we'd go to the park. We had been in the play area for a while then wandered over to the bowling greens. There were several games in play. We parked up on a bench. I remembered that, many moons ago, my wonderful parents in law would go and watch the bowling on a sunny afternoon. I think now I see the attraction. It's such a tranquil game and the people, mainly retired, with all the time in the world on their hands are only too happy to stop and chat.Charlie found a little playmate, a little girl who was there with her grandparents. They ran around quite happily together and I was very happy to sit and watch and soak up a few rays. Did I say it was hot?This cottage garden border was absolutely glorious. I'd love a cottage garden, but then who wouldn't? Actually I'd also love a cottage, maybe down in Devon somewhere, yep that would be very nice!
All in all it was a very pleasant way to spend a couple of hours, a summertime simple pleasure for certain.
I'm joining Dayle at this week's Simple Pleasures party.
