As the famous song says, the livin’ is easy, especially now that it really does feel as if summer has arrived. It has been a strange spring and summer up till now with wetter and cooler temperatures than expected, and certainly more wind. I am a firm believer that whatever weather we get, Mother Nature sorts herself out somehow, and right now we are blessed with a run of sun and heat. In fact we have a canicule (heatwave) predicted for next week with temps into the high 30’s. Sounds like it’ll be shade, fluids and a good book.
To me a field of poppies is the epitome of summer in the French countryside, along with the deep, rich purple/blue of lavender
Wherever you are, I hope the “livin’ is easy”
Lovely. As it happens, I was snapping away at a newly-discovered poppy field this morning, as we were on our way to visit somewhere that had generous quantities of lavender growing. But you’re right – I associate both more with France than with England these days, sadly. Enjoy your arrived-at-last summer.
