Sitting out of the sun in the shade of a spreading chestnut tree on an oh so comfortable Lafuma lounger snoozing and reading books on my Kindle. **
I blame the heat.
Work in the garden has mainly been just watering plants in the cool early mornings or late in the evening as the bats begin their nightly hunt for food, and I did prune some roses one once or twice.
Once upon a time I used to have a potager and would toil daily amongst the courgettes, lettuces, beans and tomatoes. Now I only have a small herb bed and a few golden raspberry canes to tend to.
I do miss picking fresh salad leaves for dinner in the evenings though.
So, how's your summer going?
Are you out and about enjoying fun activities with family and friends, tending your garden or maybe you have animals and pets to care for.
Just between us - I always hankered after keeping a couple of donkeys in the back garden.
I knew in my heart that it was never going to happen.
Still it might have been nice.
