Such a lovely spell of weather. We wake most mornings to the promise of a fine day ahead.
Out into the garden to pick a few autumn raspberries for breakfast
and some fresh flowers for the house.
The citrus trees have all been crammed back into the greenhouse
and there isn't much room to move!
The tomato seeds that I got from the seed swap have cropped well.
I put them in the garage greenhouse and, due to neglect, they escaped up towards the roof.
They are the size of marbles! I looked at the seed packet. Ah, that explains it, the are called, 'Currant Goldrush.' The sow by date says 2012 but tomato seed seems to be viable for a long time. One packet of my favourite tomato, Mr Fothergill's 'Red Cherry' keeps me going for several years, and always with a number of additional seedlings to pass on to neighbours.
It's not especially tasty but 'Goldrush' does look pretty, hanging like a row of beads
or scattered in a tart. We are eating well out of the garden. (Courgettes with everything!)
The evening skies are just as lovely as the sunrise. Blurry photos taken from the car as we travel to a friend's house.
A house-warming party was in progress next door and we were invited to join. Doors had been flung open
and everyone was outside enjoying the sunset over the Bristol Channel.
Joining up with Friday Skywatch to see some beautiful skies from all around the world.
I live with Himself (husband) in a former gamekeeper's cottage in the South-West of England.
