:: Summer View :: oh those greens, I love gazing at my summer hill view!
:: Summer sky :: love walking out in the warm evenings with my face turned towards the beautiful sky. These long, light-filled days are just so lovely.
:: Summer flowers :: enjoying this little jug of pretty blooms on my table each day.
:: Summer drink :: delicious coming home after a long, hot busy day and sitting a while in my back yard with a tall glass of homemade elderflower cordial.
:: Summer food :: light, fragrant summer salads, you just can't beat them. This was a pea and bean salad with mint vinaigrette (from M&S) with added tomato, cucumber, rocket and crumbled feta. Yum!
:: Summer walking :: I divert my walk home from town to come the slightly longer way along this pretty stretch of canal. I love that I get to do this as part of my daily routine.
:: Summer park :: an evening trip to the park with the Little People a week or so ago, loving the long lush grass at the edge of the woodland and the magical early evening light.
:: Summer fragrance :: oh wowsers, this rose is incredible!! Not mine (oh I wish!), it belongs to a neighbour lower down my back street. I could not believe the scent of them as I walked past, the fragrance was so beautiful.
:: Summer pots :: not a cascade of roses, but I am really happy with my humble pots of annuals. I walk up and down my back street just to take in the effect of coming across the sight of them from a distance. I have flowers! They make me so happy!!
:: Summer chat :: yes, I do talk to my flowers, but only when I am alone :) I noticed today that some of our seeds have sprouted already, yippeeeeeee! So I shall now chat to my weeny sunflower shoot, and my weeny nasturtium shoots, encourage them to grow big and strong.
I wish I had more time to be here in the Attic, I've got things to show you, things to discuss, things to share! This is the last week of my yarn bomb work in local schools, so hoping I can be here a bit more as of next week. Mind you, I also have a mountain of mandala parcels (approaching 200) still to open, so the workload remains hefty. But I miss my blog very much. Hoping you will be about to visit me next week, I've got a blankety Ta-dah moment coming up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yay!!!!!!
