In just over an hour's time I'll be drawing back the shutters and putting the signs out on the path in Hill Street Saffron Walden – it's my turn again to be on the front line of retail in The Riverslade Gallery.
Are you basking in the heat wave? The gallery is a little oasis of tranquil calm, Carole Grey's glass panels casts coloured patterns on the floor . . .
Patricia Palmer is a new member of the gallery, her paintings are geometric compositions inspired by Moroccan buildings. The colours are echoed perfectly by Marilyn Andreetti's ceramics.
So, if you're walking into town from the Waitrose car park, look for the pink geraniums in the window box and pop in for a chat . . . and find some beautiful treats for you and your friends.
