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
