Henry James said 'Summer afternoon-summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language.'
I agree with him. Those two words conjure up images in my mind of Grandfather clocks ticking languidly in a silent hallway; a lace curtain shifting gently in the breeze at an open window; an empty chair under a tree; an open book on a green lawn; my nan putting down her knitting to go and put the kettle on and search through tins for some cake. Powerful words, powerful images.
Enjoy your summer afternoons and create some memories for yourself. xxx
