Blue skies...

I was awake bright and early on Saturday morning with lists of things to do whizzing around in my head! It was such a gorgeous morning!

Glorious blue skies at 5.30am while everybody else was sleeping !!

So, I took full advantage - I hung out the washing and then sat on the garden bench to look, listen and enjoy for a while! Just me, the birds and naughty cat no.2 licking the heavy dew from the grass!

For a while, there were only patches of blue in the sky at the village fete on Sunday morning...

...from the stall covering and our umbrella! Here's my daughter, still smiling despite being very wet and regretting the decision to wear her canvas pumps! Yes, the sky darkened, the wind got up and the rain bucketed down, causing quite a few problems for stallholders!! Lots of us got soaked through trying to re-secure tarpaulins, keeping stock dry and removing the water that was pooling fast on the stall coverings above us! Fortunately, it only lasted about 30 minutes or so and the weather turned out really nice for the rest of the day!

Once the sun returned, so did the visitors and a good time was had by all!

Bye for now,

  1. Your daughter has a lovely sunny smile (despite soggy feet!). I'm glad the rain abated for you. There looks to be some lovely things on your stall.
    We had a good fete on saturday - just a light sprinkling of rain to cool us down. But I've just signed up for a carnival at the weekend and think I might be in for a soaking looking at current forecasts.

  2. Hi Rebecca,
    Glad to her that the rain didn't last long and that you had a good fair. Your items look all lovely and so does your daughter. :)

  3. Glad there's someone else who likes to get up early. Sleeping always seems such a waste when there are these lovely light mornings! Lovely post and stall by the way.

  4. Your stall loks lovely-I would like to see more of it!
