A Time To Chill.
So, what's been happening here? Lots of people turning up and staying for scrumptious meals of cherry tomatoes, basil, olives and great slugs of fruity olive oil, the whole adding to the summery feel and being roasted to add to pasta
or made into summer tarts with rich buttery pastry to eat with homegrown salad...yum.
Playing on the courtyard while Mama and Papa quaff wine in the sun.
All that hard work moving shells around means a rest is required. Nothing like a stretch on a soft handmade quilt is there?
The apples are growing larger and the light slants across highlighting the odd curves of this variety.
The figs are fattening and should taste so wonderfully sweet, syrupy juices dripping off chins with any luck (and a continuance of the hot sunshine).
Back in the house strange things are taking place. Now, this may look like a jelly explosion to you, but it is actually school homework - can you not see it's a cell complete with nucleus, cytoplasm, etc? No? Ah well.
Time for another evening chill out around the campfire, but today we have drizzle. Who knows, it may change back to hot sun by then.
Have a lovely day, whatever you are doing x
