Yes , it was very humid too, so I of course was wearily fanning myself and wondering where there was a swimming pool. Alas that luxury is not mine, so a bathtub would have to do, later in the day... (Splish Splash)
Yes, the heat was getting to me so upon exiting the garden, I paused to pick the languishing peony and two lovely roses that begged a grand showing in the magenta pink hue of the music room.
Although the music room is still being decorated and in a very unorganized state.... I thought it fitting to adorn the room with the first blossoms of summer. The tea rose provided a much needed perfume to the musty paint smells, while the peony presented itself eloquently beside the china lamp. What else could I do , but pull up a chair, turn on some harp music and have a cup of tea. It's amazing how relaxing ice tea, music and a biscuit can be in the swells of the harping summer heat.
