The colour pink for Visible Monday.

We are waking each morning to mists and heavy dew
with the sun trying to break through, promising a lovely day to come.
Today a slight breeze from the west meant that we were able to light the bonfire
and reduce a sizeable amount of debris to a very small heap of ash.
There is still a good amount of colour in the garden - most of it is pink.















For all that the days are gentle it is definitely autumn now and frosty nights are promised for later in the week.  We are still picking beans - but the end is nigh!
At least the chimney pot is now straight and firmly fixed on the roof (with it's new little hat) so that when the cold weather arrives we shall be ready.

I shall have to start hauling things into the greenhouse.







I like to wear the colour pink and seem to have gathered quite a collection of pink blouses. (Second only to a great many white ones. But who can resist a crisp white blouse? Not me, anyway.) This outfit is old, bought sometime way back in the  20th century. The blouse is linen from CPShades and is the murky pink that I like. I think that the firm has stopped trading now. The old crops are from Gap, from an era when things were baggy! Just the job for messing about in the garden.
The necklace was a present from Peru (from someone who knows my weakness for pink stones!) It has recently been restrung. I  think the pieces have been re-assembled differently.
For Patti's Not Dead Yet Style on Visible Monday.
And guess what, Paula, 
my hair is now long enough to get pinned up,
sort of!

  1. Hi there!
    That shade of pink of your shirt is such a pretty, delicate shade! And OH my, your garden is exquisite! Such beauty- you must have worked so hard to get to that point. Red Admirals make me happy as do Cosmos. I tried to grow Cosmosfor my wedding and the wretched things didn't come out until after- they were beautiful when they eventually showed their faces!
    Lovely to meet you, visiting from V.M!x

    1. Hello Kezzie, Cosmos do take a while to get going, shame they missed your wedding! But they are good doers because once they do decide to flower they go on for ages. And a great bonus in my garden is that the slugs don't seem to like them.
      I've been having a peep at your blog and am most envious of your ability to dance all those fabulous '40's dances. We've been to a few forties events and I've loved the dancing demonstrations.

    1. Thank you for hosting Visible Monday, Patti, I loved your latest look. It's always fascinating to see what women are wearing all over the world on a particular Monday. Some regulars are always absolutely glamorous (Tamera!) and others, like Melanie, so joyful. I hope you never tire of being such a good hostess!

    1. Thank you, Maybe, I feel happy in pink - and purple in all it's tones along with black, white and grey. I keep trying to extend the colour range of my clothing and to add pattern but it never happens.

  5. Your garden is amazing and still so many flowers to be seen. I love making bonfires, haha.

    1. Oh, bonfires, aren't they great! The satisfaction of reducing a huge heap to ash. And the sound, all those little crackles, and the smell of woodsmoke. I list a garden bonfire as one of life's pleasures! (Does this mean that we are both primitives, Janneke?!)

  8. It isn't just me! I've been pink focused this season, and as you say "murky" pink is wonderful. You look lovely in your 20th Century pink blouse. The little tour of your garden lowered my blood pressure quite a lot, I'm sure. So wonderful.

    1. No, it's not just you, Jan! (Hope your blood pressure isn't actually in need of lowering.) Last year's 'must have' pink coats still seem to be favoured for the coming season, so we are not alone!
