Strawberries? - well it is Wimbledon!

Well it's actually not raining and is a warm and sunny day today - gasp!!  How long it will last I do not know - so a summery post is in order today - and seeing as though Andy Murray has made it to the Wimbledon final tomorrow I think some strawberries are in order - my little tribute and my own little way of wishing him luck - I think he's handled the pressure the public have put on him very well  - having every move scrutinised must be hard and as far as I'm concerned he has nothing to prove but of course would be thrilled for him if he wins so go Andy!!!!  ........ and I hope it doesn't rain in London tomorrow!!!!  Enjoy the strawberries fellow bloggers ... sorry I can't offer the real thing ... yummy!

  1. Sharon, despite knowing all there is to know about GJ's blog I haven't worked out how come I did'nt know about 'The Rambling Artist'.

    Looking forward to receiving the 'Lions of Chester' painting. Great Stuff....keep up the good work.

    PW of Birds2blog fame!

    1. Lol thank you Pete, I only started the blog a couple of weeks ago and starting mine has given Gary the push to get his up to date. So glad you like the lions, and good to know they're going to a good home!

    1. We've actually had a lovely summer's day today - how long it will last is anyone's guess and it wasn't forecast so I didn't make the most of it and go out hiking - typical! Thank you for your lovely comments

  7. Lovely work ... They really do look good enough to eat, Sharon. We'll be glued to the telly this afternoon ... with a couple of breaks to cook the Sunday roast for the rest of the family I guess! Go Andy go!
