Oh, What a Beautiful Morning.....

Oh, what a beautiful morning, oh what a beautiful day.....etc.( although very humid )  It needs to stay that way PLEASE. Today there is to be a wedding at 4.30 pm. We are going...... how lovely is that. ( 2 weddings in 11 weeks - most unusal for us ) I will report back Sal as I know you would so like to be here .( I think it is going to be really hot weather like you had ! ) The 2 young people getting married today have been living in the snowy UK and are to return there, so it must seem very hot for them. A  "Kiwi girl, " is always a Kiwi girl, no matter where she lives. She is going to be a stunning bride, as she has always been lovely looking. ( and I have known her since before she was born.) Such a happy celebration. ( please stay fine weather ! )
In today's mail we got a late card from the lovelies in London. Such a delightful drawing / print.
Last evening just before knocking off time for me we had a very heavy shower of rain. The garden is so glad for it and it is such a time saver when we don't have to water things. Everything gets some moisture too, not just the things we decide to water. Rain in suitable amounts is such a blessing. ( So sorry my friends in Queensland, too much is devastating ! )
My lettuces with rain still on the leaves.

 R has 9 tomatoes plants, all different sorts that are just starting to colour up.They are looking so promising.

Someone asked what are we reading at the moment. I am reading "Alias Grace, " by Margaret Atwood. I am glad to say I am really enjoying it. The previous book I read by this canadian writer I did not care for, so I am glad I tried another. Anyone else read this?

I have read "Alias Grace" and thoroughly enjoyed it - keep meaning to read other books by the same author, but so far haven't.

Yes the weather has been beautiful hasn't it. I have just had 2 weeks at the Mt and it was glorious!

I have just started reading The Blind Assassin by Margaret Atwood. Can't get into it, but it sounds like Alias Grace is a little easier going.
