Today feels like Friday!

Everyday this week and last week and the week before felt like friday : the day that ushers in the weekend. So all those weeks felt like a long , long weekend.  Today feels like Friday. This morning was  garden time: planting some green and red peppers  and watering, watering. Summer heat came with the solstice. Now cleaning and then will take a swim. But I'm stuck on this author:

                    Janet Marsh, studio on the River Test, Wherwell, Hampshire

Nancy had posted a  wonderful book that I found and arrived in the mail. I'm reading it and fascinated.

The gorgeous illustrated and written book ( from the Itchen Valley in Hampshire)  gave me curiousity  to look up    Janet Marsh and follow a trail on the internet:
