Born in and now returned to Yorkshire from Scotland, spending summers in Italy. I knit socks but prefer to wear flip flops

Another lovely day
Good morning, it’s threatening to be a scorcher here so we completed the outside duties, sweeping, watering etc before breakfast. In fact I generally get up around 6 am, feed the cats, make tea and potter around while it’s cool.
The vegetable garden is looking good, we may have been too late putting in our tomatoes and aubergines but they look so nice a crop will be a bonus. We are more confident that the courgettes and green beans will be productive.
I don’t have so many plants in pots this year, I am coming round to thinking that’s a good idea as it means much less watering. Instead I can spend the time putting out and taking in my outdoor cushions. They look lovely but in fact it’s not that comfortable on Mr FF’s new wall seat, the cats however find sleeping there a treat.
Yesterday we celebrated coming out of our self imposed quarantine with a trip to Fiuggi a nearby spa town. We had ice cream, a walk and a sneaky look round a swanky hotel with a gorgeous pool and garden. I checked afterwards and it’s very expensive to stay there, our pool on the other hand cost about a third of an overnight in Fiuggi and it’s all ours.
