Summer time and the living is breezy

 February is the hottest month of our year!

The snakes and tortoises are wide awake. We are having to remove certain tortoises quite often from the veggie garden.Tortoise

The vegetables in the gardens quickly tend to bolt if not watered well enough, or get to dried up from

the South Easter who regularly makes her appearance. Like now. And yesterday. And probably tomorrow.

Luckily,  just around the corner we have a warm False Bay ocean for long delicious swims and an icy turquoise Atlantic Ocean around the other corner for screamingly refreshing  dips or exhilarating surfs.

Summer also brings us:

Warm magical evenings with clear starry skies, sweet fragrant juicy tomatoes and plump purple sticky figs from the garden, super productive bees buzzing amongst all the flowers and warm freckled faces and dirty sandy hands after a hard day of playing in the garden.

Hooray for summer time!

  1. And here in New England we’re having the most concentrated clutch of snowfalls in quite a few years. Another storm forecast for tomorrow and the next day. Those arctic terns are on to something…fall comes? Just fly to the other end of the earth, and enjoy spring and summer all over again.
