Two little shoes on the step!


The family’s gone home,
We feel a bit flat.
A bit tired too,
I need to add that!

The garden survived it,
Sun’s shining again!
But what I would give
For a deluge of rain!!!

In winter I moan about,
skies that are grey.
‘She is NEVER satisfied!’
I hear you all say!

So cute Chris. I can just imagine how tired you are. This dry spell is incredible isn't it. But we are due for some rain tonight in Angus.

Ahh! Sat and looked at the pic for ages. Every picture tells a story. I guess your little Cinderella will be missing her slippers...
Loved the poem - you're right, we moan when its cold, we moan when its hot (but it has been lovely to have a real summer after all the disappointing ones we've had in recent years.)

Great poem, lovely to see the family but also lovely to relax again!
Lucky you Karen due some rain!

Yes, it rained during the night, but can’t have been much as my rose border is bone dry again!

What would we all do if we didn't complain about the weather???

Lovely little poem :)
It's nice to see them come and it's nice to see them go lol …
and it's nice to have pleasant weather instead of being baked or drowned !

That made me smile!

Lots of clouds around today but no rain. Older Son bought a large cooling fan for us and we hoped that would bring on some showers. Forlorn hope! The fan, however, is brilliant!

W'rose I loved that poem and the photo with the shoes on the step, your garden is looking good, even if it is thirsty, I used to love hot summers and it never bothered me working out in the sun, however it has beaten me quite a lot this year, I have had to retreat indoors until the evenings, housework when the sun is shining is not good is it, lol...
