Lazy, summer days

Me!! Such a handsome devil.

Me!! Such a handsome devil.

Greetings loyal readers.  Today, mummy is pleased because it has been raining and this saves her from the tyranny of watering the garden.  It has been very hot and windy here and the grass has becoming very dry and tinderbox like. Thankfully there have been no threat of fire around here, unlike our Australian neighbours who are suffering from terrible bush fires.  Family are starting to eat the first of the produce from the garden.  Lots of beans, courgettes and tomatoes.  Me and Nellie do not care for these things but family seem to like them. Soon I will have been with my family for three whole years. Imagine that!! Mummy has had three years of maremma love and attention.  Love Nellie and Jasper.

    Man, we have never seen a sign like that before in our area. They did say one year here, that we should water our mulch around our houses so it does not catch fire.

  2. Yay for the rain. You should roll on the mud

  3. I’m so glad you’re staying safe!

    If you don’t want your green beans-send them to me. Kaci and I LOVE frozen or fresh green beans. Canned are yuccchy.

    Thank goodness for rain, relief not only for the land but all the creatures who live there, the birds and bunnies, deer (do you have them?).

  7. You would never see a sign like that where I live, especially this time of year, bring so heat over here Jasper!

  8. Please enjoy summer extra for us who are stuck in winter.

    We were looking at the forecast today to see if it was going to rain. Not in the next seven days sadly.
    Enjoy it and I hope it keeps the garden growing.

    It always amazes me that blogging has opened me up to friends all around the world! I’m sat here reading about the heat you are struggling with, watching the snow fall! Bizarre!

  13. We agree with Basil. Reading about the warm weather our blog friends are having whilst we sit in a winter wonderland is really quite amazing. Long Live Blogging and Blogging Friends!

  14. Great – now we have the same weather – only an itsy bitsy difference between the temperatures ;o)

  15. Glad you got some rain at last!

    Sweet Nellie and sweet Jasper we are happy for you that you got rain. We are also happy that you have not had fires in your area. We are thinking of those and praying for those that have fires. We bet those fresh garden veggies are yummy. We hope you get more rain so it won’t be so dry there. Hugs and nose kisses

  17. We are so glad you got some rain your way. We have a little something on our blog for you!

    Oink oink,
    Katie and Coccolino the mini pig
