Happiness is …
Just a few random pictures that have been taken over the last week - a photo journal of how I have occupied my time.
Picking the last of the summers flowers
Sky-watching as the sun goes down
Enjoying a bowl of home made tomato soup which was totally tomatoey and quite delicious.
A weed is a plant that has mastered every survival skill except for learning how to grow in straight rows. ~Doug Larson
Spending every afternoon in the garden trying to make an impact on over-enthusiastic shrubs, over-enthusiastic weeds and planting bulbs in borders and containers.
It was one of those perfect English autumnal days which occur more frequently in memory than in life. The rich colours of grass and earth were intensified by the mellow light of a sun almost warm enough for spring. ~ P.D. James
Making the most of the last bit of colour before it disappears.
If thou tastest a crust of bread, thou tastest all the stars and all the heavens ~Robert Browning
Turning this delicious Sour Dough Boule into this
Happiness is … marmalade on toast
Breakfast toast – crunchy on the outside, chewy on the inside - with rich Tawny Orange Marmalade.
It is a greater act of faith to plant a bulb than to plant a tree ~ Clare Leighton
Did I mention planting bulbs
still more to plant
Marvelling at the Primulas that have started to flower
I was drinking in the surroundings: air so crisp you could snap it with your fingers and greens in every lush shade imaginable offset by autumnal flashes of red and yellow ~ Wendy Delsol
And watching the wonders of Autumn as the leaves start to change colour and fall silently to the ground.
And finally, gathering the last of the Blueberries – their best year ever.
Hope you enjoyed your week as much as I did. And as an extra special treat I give you the colours of autumn.
See you next week – same time, same place.
