Level three heat health alert : Perhaps time to enjoy 'an evening hour'
Like many countries around the world the UK has also been experiencing high temperatures. Many areas have a level three heat health alert issued for the rest of this week. Eddie and I will do our best to stay as cool as possible and avoid going out in the heat of the day. The early morning or later in the day is often that little bit cooler. Sometimes it can be so enjoyable to make the most of an evening hour ... which links nicely to this poem, which I hope you will enjoy reading 😊
An Evening Hour
It was a sunny bright evening, an evening so calm,
The kind of evening that was inviting me with an outstretched arm.
So I decided to spend an hour doing almost nothing,
Sitting and enjoying the best of what nature could bring.
Getting up from my chair, I thought I'd take a stride
Then there was a bumble bee that suddenly came by my side.
There was a kind of music as the bee flapped its wing,
Music so perfect that no one could ever sing.
Walking little further, I spotted a butterfly
Which was hovering over the flowers and then soaring high
And I came to the conclusion as I was on my knees,
Not the richest of queens was dressed like one of these.
My evening hour in the garden was very well spent
And now I know what beauty and music really meant!!

and at the end of the day I always enjoy a refreshing cup of tea
remember in the heat it is important to stay hydrated
~Wishing you a happy day~
All the best Jan
