Farewell Summer?

Hi all, well this morning feels rather Autumnal and I’m not the only blogger/nature lover to think so. There is definitely a feel; a chill; a freshness about the air this morning.

There are cobwebs glistening in the early morning sunshine and as I walked down the garden path I could feel them in my face and hair. Anybody who saw me would think I was practicing martial arts as I was chopping at the webs as they touched my face!

My Nasturtiums seem to have started to die off so I’ve been collecting their seeds ready for next year. Also noting where I wouldn’t plant them next year!

The Cabbage White butterfly has also been busy laying eggs on them as well as they have now hatched out into little caterpillars. Good job they aren’t flowering any more!

My vegetable patch has not done to well this year either. A few tomatoes, six pumpkins, one courgette and a few potatoes. Although my green beans have done well and their is plenty in the freezer for a few meals.

These past few months I have not done a great deal of photography, I’ve not been really inspired. I’m hoping to go the Lake District (but nothing booked) in October as that’s my favourite time of the year for the stunning golden colours and mists…until next time.

  • Holds hands up in apology!
    Sorry all but not put up the images of the Balloon Festival up yet. I’ve been distracted due to a (small) summer(!?) cold and making lots of seasonal soup for work. I promise I’ll get them up by the end of the week. Out of interest, who would like be to post a couple of my real easy soup recipes? To make up for the fact there’s no balloon pics yet, here’s some that popped up on my timeliness from a couple of years ago.

  1. I love the delicacy of the flowers in that first shot, and the autumn waterfall is stunning. But I do hope you’re wrong about the end of summer. Much as I love autumn I would prefer to wait a little longer for it!

    1. Thank you, I hope so too I don’t feel like we’ve had a proper summer yet. Everytime I go out to do some gardening or tidy up it seems to rain. I did manage to get out for blackberry picking today though!
