July is moving towards the school holidays quite slowly, and we can't wait for the school to be over.
Eddie and I glanced up as we left our house early in the morning, only to see this fluffy cloud above. It looked a bit like an angel who flapped its wings in joy.
This pretty red flower catches my eye every day I walk into town. I didn't know its name, but after a short discussion on Facebook, the general consensus was that it is a crocosmia.
More dramatic skies on Wednesday. I snapped these anxious clouds in the town centre. I thought they would look more arty in black and white.
In the last week I made this simple strawberry and blackberry salad a couple of times. The berries were soaked in Pimm's for a few hours for the flavours to develop. A grown-up dessert, so summery and bursting with colours.
I recently won a selection of TG green teas. This ginger-flavoured green tea was refreshing and zingy.
Today we had a colourful carnival parade in the town centre. The pipers' band takes part every year, and they are very good. Always a pleasure to listen to them.
