A bit back-endish

It's a bit 'back-endish' as they say up north. Summer (what summer?) is definitely over.
The garden is looking bedraggled.
Flowers still bloom, but without much effect.

The nerines always look too exotic for late autumn flowering.

Cold weather has finished off the summer vegetables, so now we are starting on the parsnips and sprouts.
It is altogether nicer to be tucked up inside.

We've had a sociable week. The Young and Fit came, and we planned our next Awfully Big Adventure over tea and cake. (We are going to stay in La Habana Vieja - there will be dancing!)
The Writing Group came with fizz, flowers and lemon buns to celebrate Himself having won a short story prize.
Flowers from Pam.
And our former neighbours, Kim and Andy came for supper and a lovely catch-up. Oh, they never should have moved!
Flowers in the house for Jane at Small But Charming.


  1. He who carves also writes? Congrats to Himself!

    The time changes tonight and the humidifiers come out. Summer is definitely over here too.

    1. We are both in a writing group that meets up most Fridays. It's very stimulating and a lot of fun.
      We've got frost on the ground this morning and had a bit of snow over the weekend. Months of cold weather ahead. /:-(
