1. How peaceful Jo – such beautiful photos! The colours are so lovely. We have had an unusual summer palette of greys here – it poured down for 2 days with no respite breaking records – coldest ever recorded maximum temp in February. It struggled to 17 on Thursday then a dizzy 19 – very strange (average max is 30)! Our garden looks so green though! Hope you have a lovely weekend 🙂

    1. 17! Woo Hoo! 🙂 🙂 It was 2C at its peak yesterday with wintry showers. Want to swap? No, seriously, Rosemay, it is all a little bizarre but I bet your garden’s happy. It will be another swift walking, well wrapped up day today 🙂

      1. Brr sounds very cold Jo – no I’ll take 17 over 2 degrees though it is the height of summer here!! Our daughter in London says it was snowing earlier this week! It’s just been a very odd summer here coming after a cold winter and spring. I’m happy we really haven’t had heatwave conditions like many parts of Australia – the eastern states are sweltering. Apparently, according to Monsieur, the magnetic poles have changed round and this could be causing unusual weather patterns (he has read an article about it). Hope you are keeping well rugged up though! I do love winter fires and looking forward to lighting our wood burner again probably sooner rather than later at this rate! 🙂

    1. It’s going to be bleak here this week, Gilly, but I’m hopeful that after that Spring won’t be too far away. 🙂 We have snowdrops out and hellebores. Apparently Jude was at a garden yesterday. Wooh Hoo! 🙂 Hugs, hon!

    1. Are you in the middle of bleak midwinter, Jet? Still wet in California? I can’t fathom the weather this year! It’s a little crazy (and not only the weather!) 🙂 🙂

      1. Hi Jo, oh yes, it rains endlessly in northern Calif. these days, and yes, bleak. However, I just returned from 10 days in the Caribbean so while my mosquito and chigger bites slowly disappear, I’m pretty happy. 😀 Always fun to enjoy a few moments with you, Jo.

  2. Very peaceful, Jo. While it has been foggy around here, the ocean has been calm and keeps drawing us in for a walk on the boardwalks or the beach (when dogs are allowed).

  3. It was a bit like this here yesterday. Well, not exactly HERE, but over on the south coast on the Helford River. Blue sky and no wind! Now that makes a change… 🙂

    1. It’s a scruffy bit of fisherman’s beach, Andrew, but the lagoon is quite amazing. You can walk across to the sandbar at low tide (but you might have to swim back! Or catch the ferry in Summer 🙂 )

    1. I’m not sure where the name of the beach comes from, Paula, because I believe fabrica means factory in Portuguese too. There used to be a Fabrica at Silves, turned into a museum. Got my answers the wrong way round. Stressful here today. Sorry! 🙂

  4. I did not know about this beach and was confused by the title. Fabrika means factory in Serbian :D. Beautiful side views, Jo, and perfect reflections in your third shot. Muito obrigada 🙂

    1. I had to crop because there was a lot of sun glare in the original and I’m not clever enough to reduce it. It’s a bit of a cheat really but my Thursday’s Specials usually are. I know you don’t mind 🙂 🙂
