Enjoyed the photos


Count your blessings, Roz, if you are having lovely summer sunshine and delicious end of August days! Over here ... we are melting! Today Wednesday is the coolest & middle day in a 9 day run of triple digits heat wave (triple digits is anything 100 & over -- about 40 degrees Celsius, more or less.) The cats have to stay inside from noon until almost 9:00 and they hate that! I hate it too -- my electric bill will be astronomical!

I'm finding that my autumn is my favorite season these days. I rather like the nights drawing in, and a chill in the air after lovely golden mellow days. Much easier to just throw things in the crockpot & let them bubble away all day than to cook something when it's so hot! We sometimes get hardly any fall at all -- the heat of summer hanging on until mid-November and winter starting early. Winter doesn't last either -- the fruit trees start blossoming in late January. And I'd much rather less scorching heat and the other three seasons lasting longer!

Thanks for the wee tour of the Cotswold towns. I did get to the Cotswolds, just, when I was there: Burton-upon-Water and Upper & Lower Slaughter. I fell in love, and would live there if I could (but that would mean winning the pools -- fat chance!) I'd also live in the Lake District but that's also impossible! On my budget, I could probably afford the Outer Orkneys!

And your yard, as usual, is lovely! Enjoy it until it's time to close down for the winter.


Oh, you've made me want to visit!


The Cotswolds! One of my favourite places. We used to stay in Long Compton, which was not far from Chipping Camden, but travelled all over the area during numerous short holidays there. In the early 1970s, when I was on holiday in Dorset, I had a boyfriend who came from Tetbury - a holiday romance, I'm afraid it didn't last, although we did keep in touch for a little while. I still think of him occasionally and wonder what happened to him, even after all this time. I wonder if he remembers me!
