☀️ 🍭 September 🍭☀️ ~by the sea :-)

☀️

 

"The breezes taste

Of apple peel.

The air is full

Of smells to feel-

Ripe fruit, old footballs,

Burning brush,

New books, erasers,

Chalk, and such.

The bee, his hive,

Well-honeyed hum,

And Mother cuts

Chrysanthemums.

Like plates washed clean

With suds, the days

Are polished with

A morning haze."

 

- ~John Updike, ‘September’

 

 

🌱 Hello dear friends, I am back from a short holiday by the sea, in Weymouth UK. Each day was a fabulous gift. Mostly sunshine from morning to night.

 

This picture is of the beach huts (how I love to see these colourful buildings, wherever I go) that line the sea front.

 

.

Here in Wolverhampton it’s back to reality: Covid has come a knocking, and we’re in a 2nd wave lockdown. So it’s time again to do everything we can to get through this. And we will ! :-)

 

.

My sincerest thanks in anticipation to everyone who comes a calling . . whether it be a fave, emoji, comment, gallery. You’ve no idea how much your presence and support means to me.

 

I’ve been quite busy since returning, ...but hope to find more time soon to continue catching up. Already I’ve made a start :-)

 

.

I want to thank you all for your kindness and humorous comments on my previous (Strike the pose/ cat) post :-). I smiled so wide, at your words. It has become especially poignant to me now, as I’m not sure how long it will be before we’re allowed to see our Son and Daughter-in-law.

 

 

💚 💙 💛 💖 Wherever you are and whoever you may be, I wish you safe happy late Summer days. Sending my love to you, and the kindest of thoughts xoxoxo

 

 

P.s I’ve (many) more photos to share with you........ I might post them all in one go, or leave a gap of months (as per usual)........... we’ll see :-)
