Well, it was a lovely week last week!


  1. Oh dear!!! Looks like a Lewis Summer!

  2. Meanwhile, here in Tortosa, southern Catalonia, no rain since early July!
    Best wishes from the never-ending summer .... although I comment once-in-a-blue-moon, I do still try to follow as many blogs as I can, and this is one!

  3. I hope you are not soluble Katherine! But one day the sun will shine again and Noah will lead his animals from The Ark.

  4. Geeb: Hmmm. Well, it looked lovely in France!
    Brian - I want to get there. But not just because of the climate...
    Always nice to see your 'face' Brian. Never fret over the frequency.
    YP. We had a wonderful storm last night with thunder and lightning and wind! But this morning the sun beams down merrily and you'd hardly know but for the grass is ten cm longer and the broccoli just about touching the sky. Warm and wet: perfect growing conditions. Didn't see any doves, 'tho'.
