Saturday, 27 December '08: Summertime


And the living is easy on my front verandah. Galahad snores; Trist twitches as he dreams, drugged by the heat. A few cars pass by on the usually busy road. 2008 is not quite over. And I am just moseying around, taking snaps of the cannas growing along the garden wall.

Had I not looked at your profile to see where you were from, I would have thought you were writing about the South here in the States. A lovely picture you painted with your words.

I would love to be on your veranda right about now. It's freezing rain and I just made it home, barely. My hubby had to come and rescue me at the top of the hill. Pure ice and I was in the ditch. We made it out thank goodness for 4 wheel drive living here in Ontario, Canada.
Love your lilies.
