Well the Bank Holiday weather turned out to be OK, a bit cool but it dried up each day, it is supposed to be getting warmer by the weekend and next week, a few rooms still available next week plug plug!!

This is a gift a guest left for Helen, don't worry she let me share them.

Sunshine today and Denis has been busy preparing the wall tops for the geraniums and begonias, he has added some of his magic fertiliser, secret recipe but totally organic, well it smells organic!!!

A classic Lakes day on the weather front 4 seasons in one day. We even have the spectre of the volcanish ash looming over Scotland and the North East
People keep telling us how much they are desperate for some rain at home but then complain when it rains here, I do understand nobody wants rain on holiday.

It dried up just in time for the festivities

We are having a wild wet spell of weather, its the Brathay Marathon this morning and the Sawrey May Queen  procession this afternoon so lets hope the sun shines. Looking back at last year it was baking hot

We had our latest ever room enquiry last night just before mid-night a gentleman rang and woke us up asking if we had vacancies for the night!!! needless to say I was very polite.

A garden boon day today with strimmer hedgecutter and lawnmower in action, Helen has been busy making bread.
Good news on the Olympic front the Olympic torch will be passing close by in fact it will be staying overnight in Bowness on Windermere, I would like to think it will be passing through the village and crossing the ferry but very much doubt it.

Blogger has been out of action for a day or two but is back online today, it has turned a lot cooler and plenty of heavy showers.
We took these few pictures the other day on the old favourite walk up to the tarns.
