Hoping summer stays ... see you soon! En-planing (as they say in India) this evening. Whoo hoo!

Safe and happy en-planing, in-planing and de-planing, dearest FiNZ. I am going to speak personally to the Great Sun God and insist that this sublime weather continues - at least for the duration of your stay.

That looks just gorgeous!! Far nicer than our little area, which is so flat and lacking in trees.

I bet our dogs would love that walk!

Jay: all our dogs recommend it! So, you know the answer - you must come westwards with your dogs and see for yourself. It might be just the break you need as well . . . balm for the soul, Exmoor.

Beautiful scenery. What a lovely day for a walk.
What is that flowering shrub in the last photo? It's covered with blooms!

Hello Ann it's an enormous rose bush. Not sure exactly which variety but it looks similar to Wedding Day, a climbing rose that grows in profusion in my garden.

my little dog would love to run with those dogs in the field, how open and beautiful it is there.

Had to thank you for your comment on my blog... Thank God for tests and swift actions. xxxxxx

Just dropped in, as I do occasionally, wondering how you are and hoping your summer is proving a peaceful and happy one. Better the south-west than the city just at the moment. I am coming down to Devon next month for the first time in about 15 years: Bridport for a hen night of a dear friend, followed by the wedding near Bideford. Flying visits both times, unfortunately - I'd love to take a few days off to drive around on my own, exploring, but duty calls me home again!

Thought for life

  • The House of Breath, William Goyen
    We are the carriers of lives and legends - who knows the unseen frescoes on the private walls of the skull?

Thinking about . . .

  • Daniel Klein, Travels with Epicurus
    I too listen to music more and more. Throughout my life, music has stirred me more than any other art form, and now, in old age, I find myself listening to it almost every evening, usually alone, for hours at a time.
  • Julia Blackburn, Thin Paths
    I began writing because I liked to write things down. I learnt foreign languages because they seemed to enter my head by a process of osmosis.
  • Joan Bakewell, Stop the Clocks
    I live contentedly alone. It's better that way and I am often thoughtful about what has been and what might have been. There are many like me.
  • Patti Smith, M Train
    Oh to be reborn within the pages of a book.
  • Patti Smith, M Train
    Why is it that we lose the things we love, and things cavalier cling to us and will be the measure of our worth after we’re gone?
  • Judith Kerr, Observer Magazine, 22 November 2015
    I don't believe in God. I find it much easier to believe in ancestors. I like to imagine they are pointing us in the right direction.

Don't miss a post!
