Vintage tea!

Borage flowers I grew this year from seed. so pretty and attracts the bees.
     Where are these weeks and days flying to. I can hardly keep pace !
Since I last wrote on here, we have had a small flood to deal with when that deluge of rain arrived in June. The summerhouse carpets  got wet and ruined and Peter had a lot of mess to clear in his garage .
 Certainly the pots and tubs have hardly needed much attention except to tidy them up after the battering they have had.
We managed to go out on the boat yesterday and it was a really pleasant day, the sun came out and  there was a gentle breeze as we headed up to Bilsborrow.
 On the way we spotted a Cormorant ( we think) anyway not a bird we usually see on the canal but he flew off as we came near.
We walked up to the college gardens and I went off taking pictures while Pete found a sunny spot near the lovely wildlife pond. You find lots to snap away at there and I was lucky to have found a very good Dragonfly that practically behaved perfectly for my camera.
I became fond of a lovely group of cows who were very friendly and wanted to eat my camera , I could easily have adopted the whole lot of them if I had space !
Next I stalked a butterfly that was fluttering under the woodland canopy and managed to grab a couple of shots .
I have found a lovely  Vintage shop not far from home and have been having fun spending some money there on vintage sewing bits and bobs and other lovelies.Also they serve lovely tea from pretty dainty china cups and scrumptious Carrot cake, so obviously I go whenever I can!
You have to make up for the dismal summer somehow.....It will be nice soon.. it has to be!
