Summer is here in the Moorlands. Hurrah hurrah! This week has been truly lovely; apart from a few hours of rain on Thursday but the garden really needed it. Today the sun is beaming down and we're enjoying a very lazy weekend at home after a few rather hectic ones recently. Nothing more pressing than making ice lollies, sploshing around in the paddling pool and some gardening on the agenda. Bliss.
Here's the basket I found in Suffolk which I've already used to transport seedlings to the allotment and the first of our delicious peas back home.I spied these pixie (or are the elves?) glasses at the flea market which are just the job for the boys juice on a hot day.
Lots of lovely old books with wonderful covers have found their way home too. I love the Fun book and the Ladybird Seashore guide the most.
And who could resist this summery chap? I can't wait to get down to Port Isaac in July and hear these terrific (if pesky) birds for real.
Sadly these aren't my efforts but this pretty bowl, (a 50p find at the flea market) is a perfect place for toms to warm up. Don't they look delicious? I'm imagining them with mozzarella, basil, olive oil and ciabatta for lunch. Oooh now I'm hungry. Right - I'm off!
