Hard to believe, but just for a few days last week, Summer suddenly arrived. No Spring - just Summer! Everyone had their shorts and t-shirts on and, suddenly, everyone looked happy, as they basked in the warm temperatures. Here are a few photos of the delightful little coastal resort of Salcombe - a haven for tourists during the Summer months, but at this time of the year, still relatively peaceful, which is just how we locals like it. I mustn’t say that really, because Devon and Cornwall rely heavily on tourism.
I was also able to pay a visit to one of the best National Trust properties here in the South West, on a perfect, balmy day. I have to say that I count my blessings every day, and especially for having the good health to be able to get around to do all these things. Something that I never, ever take for granted. A few photos of the magnificent gardens at Stourhead.
I have been giving some consideration to starting up a completely new Blog, in addition to this one, but one that focused on gardening and my own garden. But, on reflection, I thought that might get a little confusing, so I have decided to incorporate gardening photos in with my Southhamsdarling Blog.
These two photos are special to me - the first one features a new garden fairy, given to me by daughter number 1, and the second shows lovely tulips and anemones, which were bulbs given to me by daughter number 2 in the Autumn last year. Did I tell you how blessed I am with my two beautiful daughters?! Also, of course, I am very blessed with three healthy grandchildren. So much to be thankful for.
I hope this Post might have been of some interest to you, and I will try to think of some ‘snappy’ titles to use in the future 😊. Sending best wishes to all those who ‘follow’ my blog, and thank you for your support.
Meanwhile, something to ponder on, as I leave you ......
