While my daughters were still fast asleep, I tiptoed out of the house at a half past seven, to go the garden. I had to do communal work at the allotment complex, which is obligatory (eight times a year). It was one of those jobs my husband used to do. I wasn't that keen this morning, missing my workout at the gym with my friends, but I have to say that I sort of liked it. It was really relaxing.
I volunteered to tidy up one of the rosaries: doing some dead heading and getting rid of old wood and weeds. As it was a warm and humid day, I wore a t-shirt on my jeans only. Looking back, it wasn't such a good idea to volunteer to do the rose garden, wearing only this. My hands and arms are completely covered in scratches, as I forgot my gloves as well! Coming home, the girls asked me what happened to me. They thought I had been in a fight :-)
Afterwards I spent some time in my own garden. Cutting my way through the jungle, making lots of photo's and preparing the garden for our absence. Why do sweet peas always start to flower when we are going on vacation :-)?! The tomatoes are nearly ready to eat as well......
I am taking a blog break. My daughters, son in law and I are going on a summer holiday. No more working for a week or two......we are going.....to the UK, to Kent to be precise, to stay in a cottage on a beautiful estate. I chose the prettiest cottage with the loveliest surroundings I could find. We all need lots of good vibes, this being our first holiday without Jan. It will be difficult, but hopefully it will be good as well.
Wishing you a wonderful summer! See you soon!
