morning. In the shade and watching the bird bath antics.
I am not sure if it is the weather but I am extremely tired and have been for a couple of weeks. When I was in Devon I was sleeping in past 9 am and was told my body obviously needed it.
It was a very relaxed an peaceful few days as we went on Thursday and came back yesterday. I wandered around and picked some flowers to dry and it was great because they were different to what I have in our garden. Armed with a little bowl and a pair of sharp scissors I wandered down by the waterfall and around the acre of
Our grape vines are amazing this year. The grapes are fully formed and big already and it is a matter of ripening which will not take long in this heat and sun.
It is time to remove lots of the leaves now so that the sun can get to them.
We wandered around Honiton for an hour and went into our favourite cafe for brunch and I visited my favourite antique shop called Fountain Antiques and bought two really pretty lace collars and was thinking one could be added to one of my dresses... not sure yet but that was the plan when purchasing them. One is Edwardian and so very beautiful.
There is also an award winning ice-cream place just up the road so we were taken there in the afternoon, well it had to be done. It is on the side of the road but it has a large car park and then you
The ice creams are award winning and I now see why. I highly recommend the blackcurrant ripple and the sea buckthorne ..... both scrummy and I had a scoop of each in a tub and sat and looked over the countryside ..
As you can see from the photo on the right the view was worth just sitting there and staring at in my opinion.
Well I am a little later today and I think that might be the way of it until this tiredness leaves me. Today is a warm day but a little cloudy. It is set to be 25 degrees here again but it may not be the beating down sun, which suits me and my slow stitching.
So my day is mapped out for me and I am hopefully going to be very productive.
I will be back here on Thursday and I hope that you all have a wonderful day and ......
As always Happy Stitching! XX
