Dear weather, What would we talk about here in the UK if we didn’t have such wildly variable weather. Yesterday was pleasant and sunny and today looks as though it is going to be similar. The forecast for the weekend, certainly here in the south of England, is for hot and sunny. No doubt we will complain about being too hot. Just a few days ago we were complaining because it was a bit chilly for this time of year – we had to put jumpers and socks on and some of us even had to fire up the central heating. We are never happy, but at least we always have something to talk about.
Dear garden, You are looking nice and tidy after my efforts yesterday – I only wish you would stay like that.
Dear insects, I hope you appreciate that when I cut the grass yesterday I left two patches of daisies and clover uncut. It was tempting to leave the whole of the grass uncut (it is covered in clover, daisies, buttercups and other unidentified little flowers) for your needs, but the poor birds were getting lost in it.
Dear car, I hope the drips that have appeared on the ground where you are parked are not something serious.
Dear mint plant, So far so good. I have had you for ten days now and you are still alive!
Dear Barcelona, I’m getting round to writing about you, I promise, but it’s a slow process. In the meantime I’ll post another photo so that you don’t feel I am ignoring you. It’s a photo of work in progress, although I hope my Barcelona posts will appear before this particular piece of work is finished!
