Early summer morning

















We're on the last stretch. Only 2 1/2 weeks left and then school is out. We get up at 6.30 pm in the mornings, have breakfast, let the cats in... let the cats out again. I go outside in the garden, hang some laundry and listen to the birds twittering in the otherwise very calm and quiet morning air. The cats follow me around, crave attention, stroking my legs, meowing... I give them a cuddle, they roll around in delight just to attack my hand with a gentle bite after a second. Same procedure every time... I grab a secateur and cut off some bloomed out lupines and roses. I should add that I know nothing about flowers. I'm known to be a plant killer and I am totally improvising everything I do. Occasionally I Google what to do, but most of the time I just take a chance on what I think might be the good thing to do. Any gardening advice is welcome, just shoot and I'll absorb it all in hope to become a better gardener.

I'm so excited about my roses. They are absolutely magnificent. I planted them last year and they looked so small and poorly... Now they are full of flower buds, growing like crazy and I've only fertilized them once. The dark pink ones are starting to bloom and the one in the middle is creamy white.... I can't wait to see them all spread beauty in my garden.

The cats keep following me around, they chase each other, play fight, roll around in the growing boxes, come up for a cuddle (and a gentle bite)... I so enjoy our cats. We wouldn't be complete without them.

I prepare my bench with a quilt and a pillow. Later I'm going to have some coffee and crochet time there. It's time for the kids to take off to school. The laundry is up, the sun is slowly spreading over my garden. Before going inside I lay down under the plum tree, looking up towards the sky. What a hide away. I walk back inside, still dressed in my pyjama. I think I'm facing yet another beautiful sunny day. Time to kiss those kids good bye and wish them good luck on exams.

  3. What a lovely evocative post, I can feel the peace of the early morning. The roses are magnificent, you have green fingers I think! The veggie patch is looking good. You have reminded me I have some courgettes to plant out. I hope the exams went well for all. CJ xx
