Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate;
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer's lease hath all too short a date ...
Good old Will. He knew what he was talking about didn't he?
I don't mean about love and beauty ... I mean about British summer. Summer 2012 in particular.
This year summer's lease well and truly had all too short a date. What do you reckon we squeezed out of it? 6 weeks? ish. Maybe. And after the terrible rain of the last week we've certainly been plunged rudely into Autumn.
But I'm old enough to expect nothing different ... and so pages like this get made, in the garden, in the sunshine, on an August afternoon. Pages to document the season. To prove that there were at least few noteworthy, sunshiny, happy-making days:
...experience told me that something like it might happen .. so after making a grand, celebratory, declaration in the titling:
Thanks for poking your head round my door today. May all your wellies be watertight.
