The summer gently ending...

...with days of sudden great heat. An afternoon spent with young relatives, the children splashing gleefuly with great squeaks of joy and delight in a big paddling pool in a local park.Picking blackberries on the way home and eating them for supper. Gathering apples and making apple-jelly - it's setting nicely in the kitchen as I write this. A big jar of apple sauce to be taken to some friends tomorrow. A garden-party with an elderly relative in a nearby residential home, the Bishop joining us for tea. An English summer drawing to its close with some reassuring notes in an often worrying world.
