We spent the day cleaning paving slabs and reorganizing our ‘coffee corner’ in the garden. It’s less cluttered and much more of a relaxing space now. Christened it with a cheeky gin and tonic tonight…
Another appalling day’s weather today – pretty much wall to wall heavy rain all day. At least the forecast for tomorrow is more promising…
You can’t argue with the logic or the sentiment, even if it wasn’t that warm today! Sign outside a pub in Newport, Shropshire.
Stokesay Castle near Ludlow is one of the finest surviving medieval fortified homes in England. It was built around 1285 by a wealthy local wool merchant, and remained in the same family for almost 400 years. It is currently owned by English Heritage and is open to the public.
Our day away with friends was blessed with good weather so a gentle walk was in order. This is Southern Shropshire at it’s most beautiful. The view through the gate is of Corvedale, with Caer Caradoc in the distance.
The rather unsettled weather just lately has seen storms, heavy rain, strong winds and sunshine all in the same day, and today has been no exception. Late this afternoon a sharp shower followed by bright sunshine created this beautiful rainbow over the fields around us.
In between the showers and high winds over the last few days, I’ve been cleaning our terrace area of the black algae that has made it a bit of an eyesore. Finished off by installing a rather nice pot stand which hides the pipes etc of the outdoor watering system. Looks much better now!
