After a misty start,
as forecast,
yesterday turned into a beautiful,
warm day,
It was above 20 degrees centigrade in the shade.
So what did we do?
Did we go out for a ride on the motor bikes?
Did we take the hounds for a walk somewhere new?
Did we eat cake on the balcony?

I dug the garden
and Mike put up a fence.
All hot work,
on a hot day.

But I did sit on the balcony afterwards.
And as I looked through the seeds
waiting to be sown,
thinking ahead to the beautiful garden we shall have,
if we ever get the garden dug over!
I dozed off for a while.
What a lovely feeling.
So I did get to enjoy the warm weather on the balcony
after all.
But only after some hot work beforehand.

Well, it's too bad there was no cake, but at least you got to enjoy the sun and the balcony for a while, plus it was a productive day for you too! That's the best of both worlds. :-)

Looks like you've got a good plan for your garden. Isn't it very welcome when you relax after some hard work?
Enjoy the sunshine!

OOh 20' in the shade- how wonderful. Its a meagre 9' here today and misty all across the town, I can't see the hills at all.
Looking forward to your garden pics :-D

Nothing like spending some glorious time working with nature. I get to do so only over the weekends, so I'm so jealous! While hard work, it must have been such relaxing activity. Good for you!
have a lovely day!

I am sure you enjoyed your time on the balcony all the more, knowing that you had been busy beforehand!

Gosh that sounds familiar ... I don't know what it is about doing hot work on a hot day (it seems to happen every way that time for me too).

What a lovely post ... that garden of yours is going to be beautiful when it comes to life. Your time spent on the balcony just 'being' sounds very well spent indeed.
