Lucky you, we have had nothing but torrential and I mean torrential rain up here. Not a dry day for ages. The garden is beginning to look a bit like a jungle! Soggy and wet. Had my whinge .
No peas to shell but look forward just to sitting outside for a whle.
I think that is what made the afternoon so special – the fact that the rain and the wind had stopped – and (fingers crossed) has held off – not really summer temperatures though. Sorry about the garden starting to look like a jungle – dont get lost in it 😉
All sounds and looks wondefull. Just across the bay here, the morning was wet, but this afternoon was sunny. Sat outside with my book. Very relaxing. Just a tad too early for the glass of wine though!!
To early for a glass of wine !!?? 😉
It sure is nice to eat fresh peas from the garden these weeks! I also love your little posy of sweet peas – among them seems to be some of my favorites ‘painted lady’ and ‘matucana’. Hope you will have a nice week Karen – a high Pressure is finally building up and stops the rain here in Northern Europe and we can look forward to some nice warm and sunny days of summer!
Hi Niels – I am always amazed that any of my peas make it to the dinner table as I always eat them as I work in the kitchen garden! Yes among the sweet peas I grew this year were painted lady and matucana, they have done very well
Thanks for visiting
Hi Karen – thanks so much for your kind comments on my blog – simple pleasures indeed – nothing more satisfying than picking a pile of veg or fruit for supper – all this reminds me so much of my childhood! Have a good week – Miranda
Hi Miranda – thanks for dropping by. There is something very elemental about picking vegetables to eat.
Absolutely perfect photo, Karen. Gardeners really know how to find the greatest pleasure from the simplest things in life. It is a wonderful quality you have captured quite artistically.
