Don't listen to all that dreary news about the weather... wettest April, May, June on record... blah, blah, blah. If you catch the sky at just the right time and you're really, really patient blue can be seen. Tristan and I ran outside the other day and basked in it for at least an hour, just soaked up as much vitamin D as we could, Pippi too.
And if you happened to miss my Facebook link to Tristan's performance at our local music club then here's the link again. He was calm and cool as usual, his mother could barely hold the video camera for nerves, don't know why. He performed two songs, his second is one of my personal favourites and as you can see, he went acoustic for this one. If you get a chance to watch and if you enjoy it, Tris would be chuffed to bits if you gave the video a thumbs up on YouTube.
Today the children finished school. We have this and that planned and a whole lot unplanned like exploring nearby beaches. We're most looking forward to a series of visitors in the coming weeks. I'm also hoping to squeeze in a quick visit to Calif in August to see family. My mom's been unwell which of course makes home feel extra far away.
Here under the eaves there are just a couple of House Martins left waiting to take the plunge and fledge. Getting out to photograph the little ones has been tricky, especially when the rain buckets down – I don't have much time left.
And these are a couple of more common recent sites. Wet leaves, happy snails and drooping petals. Lucky I love walking in the rain :)
I hope you're all enjoying the summer no matter what mother nature brings in the way of weather.
Happy days to you.
