What a wonderful visit l had this morning to Hidcote. I had not been there for years and was pleasantly surprised at the gardens. The last time l had missed the rose season and found the borders to be weedy and untidy but that was later in the year. l loved the shade of the cedar tree .. the searing heat from the sun totally blocked out underneath it.. bliss.
l have just decided to turn off the Aga today.. a tough decision as it is the only cooker l have but l cannot live with the heat it is producing. Unfortunately having tripped the switch l heard the weeks forecast and no doubt will be regretting my decision by the weekend!!! How typical.. ah well, done now.
Happy Solstice 34 degrees and holding! l am wilting even though it is after 10pm!!
