autumn comes to the garden

Our two ash trees are looking amazing at the moment, making me very grateful we built on a block that already had a few trees.  I wouldn't like to have to be starting completely from scratch - we already have enough to do in the garden!  The beautiful blue skies of mother's day are just a memory now and I doubt I'll be seeing Sophie in a t-shirt again for quite some time.  We're expecting weather in single digits over the weekend and into the start of next week - great for snow lovers, but making it freezing for everybody else!

Writing-wise, I have a target of 750 words today.  I became a little behind this week, due to having a sickie home one day and then sewing another.  Luckily I have set such a low daily target and it shouldn't be too hard to achieve...  that is, if Jono has a good sleep!

Anyway, must sign off now and write, write, write.  Wish me luck!


  1. I'm sad to see winter fading.. The colours are so rich and satisfying and each breeze flutters a few more leaves away....and then we have a coloured carpet under the trees! Love Mum

    1. Lots of leaves under the trees again - one is almost bare now, but that will make lovely mulch for my new garden bed!
