With the changing season comes a new display on my kitchen windowsill, nothing here is new, the oak and the brambles were purchased last year, the pumpkin in countless years old. The acorns were collected by Will. This is a very tactile display, and my favourite of the year. I do have one other china pumpkin, which I don't use here.
I have had these two wooden acorns again for years, I love everything wood, and can't resist the touch of polished wooden items, these stay on display in my side of the office.
Our seating area, and along the fence, I have cut back all the raspberries and packed away all the beautiful supports in my shed, soon it will be time to cover this table and chair set from the wet winter weather. The table was new this year but the bench and chairs are over 20 years old.
The Cosmos along the side bed are huge and full of flowers, my homegrown plug plants in the propagator are a good size, I will be able to plant them soon, They are all going into pots around the garden and drive.
No damage over the weekend, just so very wet.
Book 3 in the Cincinnati series, another huge book, 613 pages, full again of much the same as the previous 2 books, just with new people added into the mix, it is basically a continuing story line. 65th book read this year.
The relentless rain has stopped this morning, we are expecting rain later, out of the last 7 days only one has been dry, which is not normal for the area of south Hampshire where I live, our water table will be high, but we are not at risk of flooding, so there must be a positive side. I have a clean house and have done loads more crafting, I have started thinking about my design for this years Christmas cards, again I want to use my stash to make them, whilst it has shrunk, I still have loads I can use.
