Snetterton lake.


It's been so hot here lately. It's a lot like an Australian summer. All the gardens are parched & the air smells of dry grass. Lovely in the mornings but boiling as the sun comes round to our back windows.
Richard & I often play a game here of making up stories with characters who have names of villages we pass. For ages one of our favourite mean & nasty characters has been "Snetterton", a lot like Snape out of Harry Potter. Our friends Robyn & Rob live there. Zebedy's Great Uncle & Aunt.
They live in a gorgeous old restored barn. There is a beautiful little lake near them where we went for a swim There are dragonflies & mayflies & swallows swooping down to the water (mind you not all the wildlife is benevolent, I'm suffering badly from horse fly bites). Robyn's Dad, Dr Palmer came too & Robyn's son Tom. here they all are on the bridge above the stream.
An idyllic scene at the lake & so wonderful to be instantly cool.

The pictures of us in the wheat field are for Sue Thomas who loves wheat & lambs & countryside of any sort really. Wish she was here, my lovely sis.
