Brolly love

It might look colourful and bright here in these photos... but believe me, of late we have suffered gusty rain, torrential at times, cool nippy winds and clouds in abundance.
We formally announce that Summer in Oxfordshire must be over! 
(especially as Mrs H is packing the sun umbrella away)

No!.. ROooarrR ..No! I MEeowwwWWWW don't do it..!

...STAY brolly, STAY! I can't wish Summer good bye ... not quite yet!

.. but the packing away has begun..!

Bingley's tail
Bing begins to iron out the creases...

... hoover up the trapped insects...

moreover, he goes forth to the VERY ends..
(nerves of steel)

"Departing summer hath assumed
An aspect tenderly illumed,
The gentlest look of spring;
That calls from yonder leafy shade
Unfaded, yet prepared to fade,
A timely carolling".
~ William Wordsworth, September


  1. I'm with you on that, boys! Well maybe not the bug hoovering, but the taking down of summer umbrellas... already? It just can't be that time already!!

  2. MOL.. You are silly, Bingley..But so cute !!
    Have a purrfect day

  3. Already? Our spring has just arived and we 'look forward' to a hot summer because early spring is already very balmy. Send your sun brolly to me!!!

  4. We think one of the saddest days is when the brolly gets put away. Ours is still up...for now! Yay!!

  5. We could send you some of our's even cooled down to a comfortable degree, too!

  6. yes, i think that summer is over. Both Boris & Maisie are starting to ask when we might light the woodburner! xx

  7. Hola! Arent umbrellas just fun to play hide and seek. Its nice to meet you. Hope you can visit my blog soon. Rio from Barcelona

  8. Darcy and Bingley, we, too, are sad to see summer coming to an end. The lines by Wordsworth are certainly apropos...

  9. Excellent inspection! Our summer is fading as well, it's pouring down buckets here in the desert...not usual for this time of year.

  10. Here in Sweden has the summer packed up too :(
