Flaming June

Well well well...here I sit in my garden on a beautiful day...in June! Quite how June has arrived so soon after Christmas I'm not sure...but the lady is here...the skies are blue and life is feeling pretty good. The birds are singing around me and if I am lucky this evening as I water the plants that require such, an evening performance to rival any orchestra will be free to listen to.

We have a lone bilder toiling away for us today...the other two have gone to finish a job that was held up due to the previous bad weather. Progress is progress though and for this I am more than grateful.

There is a stiff breeze still blowing, however today I am happy for it to be so. The hedges are beginning to take on their frothy appearence. Washing dangles from our line and well...even the ever growing bindweed isn't getting to me today...I shall conquer it in the end...until then it is such a good exercise...me vs the bindweed. 

Hopefully when the hubby gets home from work we will have a grill in the garden. He is a bit of a caveman so a good old grill suits him well. I prefer to do the cooking though. Charcoal has it's uses but not as a food thank you!

I am pleased to report that despite the awful clanking eminating from our washing machine earlier a pocket knife has emerged cleaned but otherwise unharmed and I slill have my drum door glass intact. No I don't check hubbys' pockets...used to...didn't like it so now don't!

Youngest has the next couple of weeks off...we went for a walk on the commons earlier...and passed by the Hockings ice cream van...yes we did indulge...it would have been rude not to...it has been perfect ice cream weather here. Despite what it could do to my hips long may it continue.

One corner of the plot...only taken a few days ago, but already changing...a rose is budding up more and I have added a dahlia to the left side. Everything is just growing at the moment. 

Well I'd better not waste too much time typing so until next time...

Blessings. J. x


  1. I can picture you finding solace in that little corner. I think this weather has given everyone a much needed boost and I might also have partaken in an ice cream (or two) this week. :)

    1. Hot it may be Jules...but when the sun vanishes there is still a chilly wind. Ice cream should come on the National Health! x
