July already?

Yes, and a week in I am still wondering where June disappeared!

June was ‘fair time’ with lots of opportunities to visit village fairs and fetes, flower festivals and feasts – an alliterative time of year – and fun fun fun.

I wonder what July will bring?

About apthomas

I love books, reading, writing, baking, chocolate, painting, sewing, people and fairtrade - not necessarily in that order. I am a lazy gardener - who loves the garden, and a lazy housewife who likes the place to be warm and welcoming. I live in beautiful Somerset. I am enslaved by Sherpa-the-cat. Saturday mornings find me 'playing shop' in the Honey Pot - a second hand bookshop, run from my garage, where along with the books you'll find fun, friendship and refreshments - all in a good cause.

  1. June? We had a June? LOL. Mine went by quickly — lots of graduations!

    I love the image of the cart with the four wheels and all the floral arrangements. At least I guess it’s a cart. What IS it, exactly?

    Thanks E-E E. That ‘cart’ is actually a ‘bier’ – the old ‘cart’ upon which coffins were brought into Church, back in the day… these days, the Funeral Directors have their own stainless steel versions and/or a team of ‘bearers’ to carry in the coffin and place it on ‘coffin stools’ or ‘trestles’.
    Too much information? 🙂
