And the time is right for sweltering in the heat...
You like what I did there? Abit of a switch on Bowie and Jaggers song? No? Yes? O-Kay then... moving on.
Yes, it’s been bleeding roasty toasty here in the U.K. this summer. Even for us way up here on the top NE coast of Cumbria. Temps have been near the 30 mark at times and there hasn’t been a spot of rain. We’re officially on a hosepipe ban on August 5th. Sucks as I’ve got the best veg garden I’ve ever had this year. I guess I’ll be lugging water from the house instead. We have a water butt... but it’s been quite low due to the no rain.
So, yeh, as you can see from the photos, veg garden has been looking mighty good! I’ve got an apple tree coming next week. I’m sooo excited. It’s a container style so it won't go above 10-12 feet but it self-germinates and will produce more than enough fruit for our family.
I’ve found myself wishing more and more of a life off the grid. If I had the cash, I’d put in solar panels and get a small windmill for power. I’d also love to have my own well. Ah, dreams of no more bills. Sigh....
Anyway, I hope you’re all enjoying your summer and getting some free time to enjoy practising your own art whatever it may be. Or if your simply an art lover, I do hope you’re enjoying all DevArt has to offer.
