The sky above the garden this evening. /  Le ciel au-dessus du jardin ce soir.

We had thunderstorms yesterday and the night before, but not enough rain for the garden, and it hasn’t really cleared the air properly.  /  On a eu des orages hier et la veille, mais il n’a pas plu assez pour le jardin.

So this evening we had Campari sodas and then barbecued sardines while we watered. / Donc, ce soir on a pris des Camparis et puis des sardines grillées pendant qu’on arrosait.

The tomatoes are still ripening very slowly – last year in August we were picking at least 1 kilo a day, but today there were none ready to pick.  It’s very strange, since we have had so much sun.

  1. >Those are some big ol sardines! I think of the tiny ones bent into cans and drenched with salty oil. When I was a kid, Dad used to make sandwiches of canned sardines on saltine crackers. Yours look more appetizing – especially with your sodas!
