There’s a break in the humidity and a communal sigh of relief. It was getting pretty hot out there. And in here.
The morning dew saturates the grass now, with summer days, wedding days and salad days preparing to bow out to make way for wood smoke, muddy puddles and autumn evenings.
Down in the town, this year’s Melplash Show is old news. A busy, beautiful day, with plenty to do and see and lots of old friends to meet.
And as the Bank Holiday weekend enters its final day, villagers take their produce and exhibits up to the hall for the annual flower show. A time to mingle, a time to gaze in amazement at the things people create behind closed doors and garden gates.
It’s a time to be thankful that we live in such a lovely part of the world. Dorset: beauty on earth.
