It is official, summer arrives next week :)

 Dull days, wet days, cool days.......the wait for summer has seemed endless.
 The weather forecast says that next week high pressure arrives, bringing sunshine and warmer temperatures.
This summer season, has felt strange.    My mind tells me it is summer, and yet it has felt like autumn for the last two months.    
 I have decided to take a blogging break for the rest of the summer.    I intend to enjoy the warmer weather in the garden and with my family.
 A garden party Saturday week, trips to the seaside, picnics in the wood etc etc.


 I am also hoping to landscape the treehouse with the children.   It has been put on hold because of bad weather, now is the time to put plans into action.
See you all in September.......

    1. Hi Jane,

      I have at the moment lost all motivation with regard to blogging.
      I think a long break will be the best thing at this time....I have lots of plans.

    1. Hi Jan,

      It goes without saying I shall miss you.....I will try and drop by during my break.
      It is raining here.....the sky is grey and the heating is on low.
      I am wearing a jumper (crazy)....cold damp and miserable :(

      The children always bring light.....I love to be with them, we always have such fun.Even the seaside in the rain is fun with them :)

      Have a great summer......

  5. I know just how you feel. Enjoy your summer "holiday". The thought of seeing some sunshine is filling me with great excitement and expectation.
    Please, please, please let it happen. We have waited so long. We need it, our gardens need it. Enjoy your beautiful garden, but most of all, enjoy your family.

    1. Tku Elaine, for such a lovely message.
      I think most people in the UK will understand.
      My garden looks fine but close up it is a mess. Strange but true....hate to say it but we have had too much rain :(
      We desparately need some sunshine.

    1. Hi Lisa,

      Marsh Mallow will thrive in the wet conditions, other blooms are short lived. I am looking forward to having fun with the family and enjoying a few projects.

      Hugs X

  7. Dear Cheryl,
    May sunshine find you, your family and your gardens creating happy memories.
    I shall miss you but understand the need to focus....
    Still no rain and temperatures in the 100's. We are in survivor mode. I have set up cooling stations for the birds with water and oranges.
    I would love some of your clouds and rain!
    Have a lovely Holiday.
    Sherry

  13. I'm so glad that summer is finally arriving for you, Cheryl; after all the soggy days you have experienced, some sunshine will no doubt be a welcome relief. I'm glad, too, that you have decided to take advantage of it and enjoy some time with your family. We'll miss you, but enjoy this time off! Looking forward to seeing what you've done with the treehouse this September.
