I’M LOVING THE SUNLIGHT on the garden flowers here in Greystoke today. Some more slides are here.

  1. Wow, Simon, what a delightful respite on a *very* humid, stormy day here in New Hampshire.
    :-)There’s a wonderful Proverb that says “As is the gardener, so is the garden.” For me, your warmth and humanity shine through in every post and are a ray of sunshine in my day–just like these beautiful flowers are today….

  2. “So pour a cool drink for you and your pet and relax.  As Sam Keen said, “Deep summer is when laziness finds respectability.”” – Oh boy! I like the sound of Sam Keen – but I can barely imagine how you’re all coping with 100 degrees.

    Thank you for your kind words and encouragement, they’re very much appreciated.

    I’ve never been to New Hampshire but feel connected with it simply because of my huge admiration and affection-from-afar for Bishop Gene Robinson of NH – and I love the sound of the place name Concord.

    Peace and some cool breeze for you x

  3. Sure is, dear Ginny, but even the London Times has published an editorial plea for a bit of respite from the rain. Funny old world though, isn’t it? Pouring with rain here and too hot with you. Keep well x

  4. Actually, we have had a multitude of rains here lately down in San Antonio. Flowers and lawns and going crazy. I’m looking out my window now at dark, ominous and grey clouds. Thank you for your prayers if you sent my way. I’ll pray for your respite 🙂

  5. Simon, you captured great colour and from some many different perspectives. Thank you for a wonderful glimpse into your garden.


  6. You would like NH, Simon, and I, too, have immense respect for Bishop Robinson. I think he is a man of immense wisdom and integrity and I marvel at his bravery and resolve. Know that if you ever make it to the “Granite State,” you have a friend here who’d be happy to show you around and share a cup of tea. 🙂
