Supposed to be the hottest day of the year and it certainly feels like it. The cats have been avoiding the shaggy rug today, perhaps they are feeling the heat too. They have been suffering with allergic reaction to something, perhaps pollen like us. Can cats take antihistamines?
Whilst lounging in the garden today I began to think about days gone by when the rich landed gentry would bring all their furniture, rugs, chairs everything out into their gardens and spend all day drinking tea and eating scones whilst their staff waited on their every need.
In those days they had large hand made Axminsters and Wiltons rugs with their complicated patterns and intricate designs. They must have looked fabulous in their expansive gardens.
