Wot a scorcher

We have spent most of the day in the garden, sitting and pottering, it has been fabulous, we sat outside for morning tea, ate our lunch out and shortly we will be having supper outside. I washed the quilt from our bed, I will fold it up and put it away until the autumn. Also did a white wash which is dry ready to be folded.

 I pulled some rhubarb and we are having rhubarb and ginger crumble for dessert

After DB had his siesta and our afternoon tea, we went round to the chapel and raided the elderflower tree for some more blossom. I have a bucket full of cordial steeping, just need to stir it for a couple of days, strain and bottle it.

We have dome bits in the garden. DB has just sown some more basil seeds, my present plant is looking rather sad. I have tied in the clematis at the back of the bungalow and I also put the hose on the slabs and swept them.

In between times we have been reading.

A really good day enjoying being able to sit in our garden. We love the good weather when its warm enough for us to sit out. We have been known to sit in the garden on cold days with a warming cup of coffee.

I bought a chicken breast, roasting it, veg, roast potatos and butternut squash, carrots green beans and calebrese, followed with the crumble and custard.

We enjoyed a glass of shandy at lunch time and the glasses are out for a glass of rose with our supper.

Being a good girl and shading my eyes, the hat is 12 years old, made of sweetcorn leaves, bought on the market in Cahors in 2004, its a bit the worse for wear now, will be sad to see it go.

DB with his gardening sun hat on, boy it is warm, it must be the bare legs are on show.
