The first time this year I nearly forgot about this post. I can't quite believe that July is already upon us, it seems that June passed me by altogether.
The first day at home after a few days of working away. After a long day and a late arrival home last night I was a little bleary eyed today, and the evening sped by. Hoping to feel a bit more enlivened tomorrow.
The first strawberry eaten from the garden. It had ripened yesterday, and I got very excited by the picture The Husband sent me of the single bright red fruit as I travelled home. Unfortunately today it looked slightly disheveled, as though some creature or other had had a nibble from the side. I was determined not to miss out on the momentous tasting, so I sliced off the untouched side, gave it a good rinse and thoroughly enjoyed it. Next, to get The Husband to try one, he is not a big fruit eater but I made him promise to at least try everything we grew. Also the first signs of a bus on the aubergine plant, it has never stopped looking bedraggled so I will be thrilled if we succeed in growing one.
The first meal outside this week, it was only toast, but it was lovely to sit in the garden, admiring the flowers and with Millie curled up.
The first thunderstorm in a while, and it is much welcome. The heavy, humid heat was getting ever more oppressive this evening, the rain bouncing off the pavement and the lightning filling the sky feels like welcome relief.
