It is difficult to avoid being inspired by the sea and the countryside around here, especially in spring and summer.
With the longer days I’ve been spending even more time outside, and the sunshine and brighter colours after winter are so cheerful. It’s also very nice to be able to sit in the garden when undertaking craft projects.
We’ve been enjoying some lovely warm weather in Devon this month, and it even stayed dry (and sunny) on the day that all of the boats were craned back into the water. The craning-in starts very early in the morning (it has to fit in with a very high high-tide) and takes a few hours, and usually seems to be a guarantee that it will both rain on that date, and be 10 degrees C colder than the day before!
