The wonderful weather continues and I'm slobbing about the garden in comfortable old cotton clothes for Patti's Not Dead Yet Monday. The top and skirt are old, bought for just a few pounds years ago.
The top has lost it's shape and is skewed to one side and the skirt is baggy to put it mildly - perhaps that's why these clothes feel so comfy!
The cowhide belt is a hand-me-down from a daughter and the beaded sandals are old favourites from Duo. (I'm sitting in the rowing boat seat - the only boat I'll be in for a the foreseeable future!)
There is plenty of summer colour in the garden
and a good choice of flowers to pick for the house.
On Saturday evening friends came to supper, a good opportunity to use some garden produce. I made zucchini ripieni
and a curried potato salad with the Charlotte potatoes.
We got out the deck chairs,
and set tables on the lawn. It was our book group meeting to talk about Ian McEwan's 'Sweet Tooth', so, of course, there had to be puddings! As with the critics, the book divided opinion but provided a lively discussion. We sat outside well into the night with just a few lanterns on the tables to cast a bit of light. If only we could have summers like this every year!
Vanilla says, phew, it's hot.
Well I suppose it is if you're wearing a fur coat!
