Delivering the Mail

Hello Lovelies, 
when the weather is perfect, like it is at the moment, I would love to be a post woman. Pottering around on my bike delivering the mail. But I know I would not be able to cope with the freezing conditions this job entails in the winter. 
I'm definitely a fair weather cyclist , I'm happiest cycling in a skirt or summer dress and  I love the cooling breeze created as you travel along . When it's really hot I stick to short , flat rides that don't make you sweat.

This morning I hopped on my bike to take a parcel to the post office.
I wasn't in a hurry so I stopped at the gap in the hedge.........

 And, avoiding the nettles and thorny hedge, gazed at the summer landscape for a moment or two........


I zoomed in on the distance ( because I could :0)  )............

And noticed the grasses are looking really dry now.........

I looked up when I heard a helicopter overhead and noticed the cloudless sky was a perfect shade of blue.....

 The same colour as my bike.

I chatted with a gentleman who was busy watering his allotment ..........

 Further along I loved cycling through the dappled shade.........

What was I delivering to the post office ?

My Yarndale bunting of course :0)

You can read about it in THIS post.

You can see what other lovelies have come up with HERE

How about you , have you made any yet ? if so have you already sent it off ?

Lucy has extended the deadline for these super happy, easy triangles till the end of August so there is still plenty of time to join in the fun. I think they would make a great holiday project .
The address to send them to is HERE 
And in case this is all a mystery to you ( but I'm fairly sure it's wont be ) Lucy's original post is HERE.

  1. what a gorgeous day for a bike ride. I'd love to be a postie - in any weather - but there's only one round I'd want to do, the round around where I grew up, as it's stunning throughout the year!

  2. I've sent my triangles for the Yarndale bunting just 2 days ago!!!!!!

  10. Your views along the way of your bike ride have sent lots of pleasure across the pond to a very steamy hot and humid NYC. No day for bike riding here...although I am sure some did pedal.
