A Country Life


A morning  shopping in a country town church charity shop while it was a cool morning. Great finds including antique books, Helena Rubinstein White Magnolia Talc, Pyrex lab jar and loads of designer clothes





It is so hot and so dry here I rush out in my PJ's very early in the morning to water the garden and let the girls out to free range in the shadier parts of the garden



I try and pick as many roses as I can before the fry in the sun











The fruit in he orchard is ripening , plums being the first.























Even Sascha is feeling the heat
