Good morning all!
It's weekend again! That comes round so quickly!
In the UK it is a Bank Holiday weekend, which means people also have Monday off. Most go away and generally enjoy themselves. It also means road congestion and tail-backs. Most of the time it also means bad weather...
We have no problem with tail backs here in our area, the roads are empty and the weather is still very hot.
Today we went to pick figs this morning. Below our house there are a couple of large figs trees by the road. You can see them here in the photo. (You can just see a little white corner of our house top right)
We drove the car down so we could stand on the tail gate to reach the higher fruit.
This is my hubby picking the figs. We are going to make fruit chutney (Nigel Slater recipe) tomorrow.
No, I haven't forgotten the postcard for today. Here it is. It arrived a few days ago from the UK.
Photographed by photographer John Gay in 1956 it is called "Through the window of Claire's cake shop in Padstow". What a lovely card. That could have been me! I was 5 years old in 1956, and I love cake!
The stamp is one I hadn't seen before with a lovely little primrose on it.
Thank you Elena for sending this card to me.
That is it from me today,
Have a lovely day and see you tomorrow,
