LATE SUMMER SUNSHINE
PEACE AND TRANQUILLITY

Summer is shaking off her finery for another year, and as the days grow shorter, the wind changes and there is a bite in the air, we are sadly about to say goodbye to her until the next time or as my French friends say a la prochaine.

We have been particularly lucky this year.  Some years Summer seems to just by- pass our corner of the world, but this year we made her welcome and she stayed.  We have had long lazy lunches with friends in the garden.  Have had a few day forays to the beach; had three weeks at the beach house and in all have thoroughly enjoyed summer.

And now my partner who is recuperating from hip surgery is taking advantage of these last days of summer to sit in the garden with a good book and his legs elevated and supported

But maybe summer will be around for a couple more weeks, and so
just in case she decides to leave us for the Northern Hemisphere, we are getting out cardigans to put on in case of a change.

“Summer afternoon—summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language.”
― Henry James, Novelist 1843-1916

  1. Looks and sounds delightful – hope your partner is soon up and rarin” to to go again.

  2. Of course I am on the other side of the planet, from what I can gather, so Summer is just beginning to make her presence felt. I am delighted your partner is on the mend and ready to take advantage of any good weather which becomes available

    • Yes Peter so while you are rejoicing at the signs of spring we are not so happy at the first signs of Autumn. Daylight saving ends here on April 5.

  3. Enjoy the last of your summer. We are waiting for ours to begin!! All the best to your friend as he recuperates.

  4. What a lovely place to recover from a surgery! He will be in good hands.

  5. Yes I think peace and quiet are very important when recovering from any surgery or illness. There is plenty of that here.

  6. Enjoy the sunshine. Keep safe and stay warm through the colder months and look forward to the butterflies again in your spring. 🙂

  7. I’m so glad the warmer weather has finally decided to visit us. We were beginning to wonder if we’d ever see her again. Obviously, she enjoyed her stay in the southern hemisphere and lingered.

So what's on your mind?
