It has been such a hot day, -
as a matter of fact it is still a hot evening
and I look forward to the time when I can
open up doors and windows, -
although the fresh air that flows in
will probably still be fairly warmish!
I suppose that can be expected in the
middle of August!!
I am amazed that the garden still looks
fairly fresh, and it hasn't
taken on that droopy August lanquishy look.
Some of the asters glisten with
the syrup from the red mites, - (at least
I think that's what causes the shine on them)
but I have had the sprayer out and hope
that they will recover!
And that when the asters bloom
they will be fresh and beautifully indicative
We spend time in the garden
but it usually just involves
sitting around, sipping a cool drink
and reading books.
(The Firmament of Time/Eiseley - at the moment)
In the morning
I try to spend some time at the loom....
have recently finished a mohair blanket...
a sticky endeavour!!!
but I am pleased with it.
Have a cone of black mohair left,
and some luscious red
and cool greens
but I'm not quite ready to
face clearing the sheds before each throw,
--not for a while.
