Sunday 17th July 2016
The weather this weekend has been beautiful...hot and sunny with hardly a cloud in the sky. A perfect start to our visit to Brittany.
The beebalm has lived up to its name.....the bumblebees can't keep away!
As it's been so hot we've been slowly unpacking and sorting things out.
We brought the mains strimmer with us this time so I got stuck in strimming near to the house. Chris will be tackling the bulk of the high grass with the petrol strimmer. We just need to get some petrol!
I've planted some runner beans. I know it's a bit late but it's kind of an experiment to see if we can be eating them by the end of the Summer.
Here they are on the window ledge in the sunshine. I'll let you know when the seedlings appear.
The hot weather has been a perfect excuse for some hammock time.
Just gazing at the sky and reflecting with only the sounds of nature.
We've had a lovely breakfast al fresco...
...porridge of course!.....
.....and a lovely lunch too!
On Sunday afternoon, I weeded the side of the house at the back where it is shadier. Chris dug out some old asbestos roofing that had been uncovered by the rain.
The little fruit garden is looking good now we have pulled out most of the weeds. The raspberry, blackcurrents and rhubarb have all survived. The snapdragon and hollyhock seedlings are doing well too.
That's quite enough work for one weekend....I'm back to my hammock!
Thanks for popping by!
