I Love June For...

Last year's Postcard from Ceredigion  - at Mwnt Bay

... holidays

There's something special about the word holiday isn't there? In my view it's much more enticing than the word vacation. It's a word to be savoured and grinned at.

NAH and I have a regular habit - when I come home the day before a holiday, it gets announced with a great deal of attention. If I had the skills - and the ability to host an appropriate number of trumpets - I would mount a full blown fanfare to mark the occasion. Instead we make do with it sung out loud, accompanied by a skip and a grin from me :)

Much as I love my summery garden, allotment and home, holidays in June are the most precious and special of times of all.

What do you love about June?

PS I haven't quite gone on holiday yet, but will be soon...

    1. Hi Sue, yes everything's beginning to come along nicely isn't it? However those pesky slugs are beating me to the strawberries :-(

    2. Do you remove the nibbled strawberries as I have found that if I leave them the slugs go back to the nibbled one rather than start on anew fruit.

  2. Oh holidays are wonderful aren't they. I love the idea of announcing very importantly that you're home. I love the greenness of June, it's still all fresh and beautiful and the countryside is always breathtaking. I like the feeling that summer is stretching out before us and I like the outdoorsiness of everything. I hope you have a wonderful holiday VP. CJ xx

  4. I'm not that fussed about holidays nowadays. June is when hopefully everything on the plot is germinating, growing and blooming, and I start to think about when I can have a firkle for the first of the new potatoes. Have a good holiday. Flighty xx

  5. Oh that photo almost draws me into that glorious beach VP. June to me is strawberries (preferably homegrown), gardening well into the evening and the thought that most of the summer still lies ahead. Enjoy your holiday.

    1. We were sitting outside in the garden at 11pm last night for the first time this year. A lovely feeling to be doing that :-)

  6. Oh yes, 'holiday' sounds much better than 'vacation', which always sounds quite clinical to me, like you're having a stay in a hospital or something ;)
