english summer



We have been having a glorious summer this year, very settled, with lovely warm evenings. We have been able to enjoy our garden, to the point that we have been more or less living out there. The housework has definitely been suffering.


But  the weather has changed about a week ago. We are back to very English summer, we all know and love (or not), very unpredictable.
We planned a BBQ for Saturday, to celebrate our daughter's birthday. Saturday came and it rained, and it rained, with high winds. With a resignation, I prepared myself for having to cook all that meat in the oven and eat inside, not for the first time I have to say, this is what happens often to English BBQs.
Just when we started to set up the table inside, it stopped raining, the sun came out and we ended up with a fantastic afternoon in the garden!

  1. Glad to hear you got to eat outdoors and enjoy your daughter's birthday the way you had planned. Even in Australia it is very hard to predict our weather and in the tropics we have cyclones to contend with in summer. I am enjoying your summer garden.
