Feeling hot, hot, hot :)

Good afternoon - is it warm enough for you?? Actually its just clouded over, hence I've come in for a while - though it was time for a blogpost.

Well what a gorgeous weekend - the sun has shone - the sky has looked mostly like this;

With lots of these taking people off on their hols;

I've been lucky - I was able to spend quite alot of time here - sewing & knitting;

or having lunch under the shade of the parasol;

Lots of washing has been done & has dried very quickly;

A new bird bath has replaced a dead shrub - I hope the birds will approve;

We've planted out our beans & sweetpeas. Big son cobbled together a cage to protect the strawberries & spinach;

We visited the garden centre - lots of hanging baskets filled & hung up. Enough plants left over to plant up my pig feeder - this came from my Great Grandfathers farm;

Will look very pretty I hope when the Red Verbena flower.

Water fights have been had and ice-creams have been eaten.

We've made the most of this glorious weekend - never quite sure when the next sunny one will happen.

Too hot for me, my car said 33.5 degrees just now, and I'm sure that gorgeous bird bath will be more than welcome. Isn't it a bit too hot to knit?

I just love red verbenas and they are going to look gorgeous in that pot. Your garden is looking really lovely after all that hard work. The birds will be very pleased with you I'm sure. Tell me, what is the little building with the pretty curtains?

I love it when you decamp outside, it feels so foreign somehow and totally relaxing. Glad you made the most of the good weather, as you say it doesn't happen very often.
