I do like The Garden range from Emma Bridgewater.
Today I received what I thought to be quite an amusing e-mail from her website. What do you think?
'summer isn't summer until there's been outdoor eating. Lay the table outside and soak up the summer. No need to worry about the barbecue, just take lunch into the garden, it will taste nicer in the sun'
Summer, what summer?
Outdoor eating, what's that?
Soak up the summer, soak being the operative word here.
Barbecue, what that metal object these days rarely makes it out the shed?
Thanks Emma for your enthusiasm!
It isn't all doom and gloom around here, the raspberries are benefitting from a constant soaking, even though the wind has brought down the canes! The bees have been doing a grand job of pollinating the fruits too. I've had a huge amount this year, and they keep coming, and coming.
Who thinks we are going to have an Indian Summer? Our Emma maybe!
