Summer seating


My wisteria didn’t bloom again this summer, but it has healthy and vigorous tendrils that I try to contain. The bench below it has managed to remain free of the growth and makes a lovely, shady place to sit. But carefully…as it is an old bench more for decoration than use. I am trying to take hold of each of these quickly vanishing summer days by eating breakfast outside every chance I get, and dinner and lunch too! I feel as if there are too many things to try to see, enjoy and generally take in each week, and it becomes  a matter of being reasonable about what to choose. It is too easy to be so torn between options that time makes the decision and nothing ends up being chosen. Yet some summer days are meant for lolling and just enjoying the fact that they are…

summer days.
