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!
