Life has been busy here at Brambleberry Cottage
and I'm feeling a bit like Bilbo Baggins when he uttered the words,
"I feel, thin. Sort of stretched, like butter
scraped over too much bread.
I need a holiday."
And so like Bilbo, I've decided to take a holiday...
a holiday away from my blog.
Summer is almost at an end
and Autumn will soon being.

My garden has been much neglected of late
and it's calling me away
to mend its soil, to prune my roses,
and DESTROY the weeds that have over run
my beloved flowers.

So I hope you'll enjoy what is left
of the lazy days of Summer
and I'll see you soon.

adieu pour maintenant

Good quote from Bilbo! Well I hope you have a nice holiday. I have been taking mini holidays of late, it's just been a busy summer huh.

All the best,

What is the quote from Gone With the Wind? I think it's "Do not squander time. It is what life is made of." That's close, anyway.

So, enjoy yourself! Have a beautiful time working in your garden!

I will miss you! Take care.

Much Love,

Like Bilbo, have a nice will surely refresh you to be out in your gardens with hands in the good soil. I need to weed mine too, but it's been too hot. We've been watching bits of Lord of the Rings this week.
