Stepping out

Today we headed out to the gardens....and stepped in and out of sun and shadows waited patiently for the fish to kiss our fingersand after a small while patience payed off found an unusual Ginko leafand had a taste of things to come
It was really warm, around 26 degrees, the warmest day we have had in months. We left the house in the morning without sunscreen and hats. After months of chill I am now unaccustomed to the summer ritual of covering up against the sun. It was a good day. We met with friends, made our acquaintance with a gentle rat named Flower-bell and had some time to frolic by ourselves too. The best kind of day really.

I went to the show on Saturday - I wore long sleeves and got boiling hot but was glad of the cover-up when the sun went down. Perfect day for the botanic gardens with so much lovely shade.
