It is hard to believe I am writing about the weather AGAIN!
Saturday, temperatures are rising, but clouds descending. We swish along country roads which are rapidly becoming running rivers as heavy rain falls.
We are doing our bit to support local rural communities by visiting events in local villages. A fabric sale to raise money for the local church, open gardens to support a community shop, and a bazaar creating funds for the community library.
So much hard work has gone into preparing for these events, but their success is often determined by the weather. Today was gloomy, lots of puddles and umbrellas, and crowds not in abundance. But there were some special moments and great finds.
We feasted on warming soup, excellent coffee cake, and a selection of interesting second hand books! And we returned home with some treasures, a “bag of gold” fabric scraps, a pot of cheerful cowslip trumpets and a 1930’s bowl for my kitchen shelf.
