Hurrah! This morning we woke up to clear blue skies and not a breath of wind. Enfin! we have some summer weather! It may not yet be as warm as normal but it really raises the spirits to have the sunshine.
our wildflower patch
Yesterday, the people we bought the house from came by. When they sold the house to us they arranged to have their furniture stored in our neighbour's barn pending a decision as to what they would do next. From Paris, they are a lovely couple who generously allowed us to stay for a week before we finally exchanged contracts to 'get the feel of the house'. They have again bought themselves a holiday home, but this time near Honfleur on the Normandy coast. It was very nice to see them again and we gave them a tour of the house. They took photographs of the house and they seemed to really like the changes we'd made. They thought the terrace was fantastic.
California poppy, an absolute favorite
Speaking of the terrace, it will be finished today! So photos of the completed space in all it's glory will appear shortly. In the meantime, with the sun out, we thought we'd share some pics of our little wildflower patch which is doing well [this it's second year]. We were sent the seeds by a very dear friend who lives in Granby, Massachusetts. It has been interesting to see what has done well this year, as compared to last year, when it was so very dry.
