It’s very peaceful around here after the exposion of activity that is Christmas. How incredible was that storm?

But now it feels like summer is truly here.

High on my to-do list this holidays: eat leftovers, read, swim, do a bit of gentle weeding and garden re-shuffling.

During all those years of drought, I would never have considered planting anything in summer, but with this wet and humid weather it seems okay to chance it.

The shadows under the oak tree are black next to the bright sunshine.

I love the summer holidays.
