I did tell you July would be crazy for me. It is. We have had two universities visit us per day for the last couple of days. These visits are lasting close to 3 hours each. I think we need a little break. I have been trying to squeeze in some crochet along the way and found a wonderful deal at an online shop quite close to here. I love the Cascade 220 for the ripple blanket and managed to snag quite the bargain. If you are interested in the name I will look it up for you, the name has popped out of my mind at the moment.

I am also trying to catch a few moments in the chubby chair for reading. However this is the favourite chair in the house for reading so you almost have to reserve it. Great for napping too.

A quick shot of the garden. I have been negligent in this department. We must spend the weekend weeding, trimming and mowing. (Is that any kind of break?!)

Finally a bit of bloom. We have had below average temperatures with quite a bit of rain. But I am not complaining! Others are, which astounds me. What is wrong with 22/24 degree temperatures? We are usually frying in the mid 30's at this point.

Lovely pink hydrangea is also loving these days.

As is her cousin, blue.
I do not know when I will be able to pop in again, but I do hope you are all having a fantastic summer and trying to keep cool in the heatwave some of you are experiencing. Poor you!

Stunning photos as always... Summer is so often a busy, crazy season so I hope that you will find time to enjoy some calm and quiet in the midst of it all. I love the colors of your ripple blanket.

So do representatives of the universities come and visit you or do you go to them? I'm glad the British universities don't do that, it must be so daunting!
