The 6 week heatwave finally broke overnight and we had some welcome rain. Today is forecast to be sunny again but for the temperatures to be back to near 25c rather than 35c! It really has been a real tropical heatwave here in the south of England. Even yesterday it was 32c in the afternoon.
I have been able to potter around and have left some garden jobs until it is cooler so hopefully I will be able to start them soon.
My walk down to Dotty's teahouse on Monday was delightful as always if very hot this week. What is there not to love about a clear blue sky?
I have noticed that there seem to be lots more ducklings and other baby fowl this year..I think some may have even hatched a second brood, if that is possible.
The waterfall is always a popular place for the ducks to cool off
I had to grin at this sign...whatever next!
People had found shade to have picnics and enjoy our beautiful parkland.
My card today is one of my newbies for Dotty's and it was inspired by all the wonderful open space I have the pleasure to be surrounded by.. and of course it had to feature a little bird too.
Friends cards sell well at Dotty's and this stamped sentiment, an oldie from Lili of the Valley, is very popular. The backing papers are ancient from my stash. The dies are a mix of Cheery Lynn, Marianne and memory box.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges;
