I know we all seem to be talking about the weather this summer. And there really is no denying, this summer has turned out to be a particularly wet (and chilly) one. So what is a girl to do when it is bucketing down most days...?
I put on my gumboots and raincoat, and venture outdoors for just long enough to pick some flowers from my wet garden. Once the flowers are placed in the jug it is time to find some books to while away the wet afternoon.
Books seem to be "my only weakness", as I do not seem to be able to resist an alluring cover or an interesting storyline. Now murder mysteries are not usually my preferred reading, but "Death comes to Pemberley" seemed too good to pass. Reading about gardens is, though, and "The Ivington Diaries" is indeed a good read.
By accident the books of my choice seem to match my flowers. I know I have, in the past, had a somewhat ambivalent relationship with the colours orange, but lately it seems to be creeping up on me most everywhere, even in my garden...
How do you pass a wet summer afternoon, when the rain seems never ending...?
