We are having a beautiful mild autumn, the mornings are pure delight walking down to cattery
The very first bunch of sweet violets for the season were picked for a friend yesterday. picking a bunch of violets takes time - a beautiful way to be totally in the moment. I always feel it is rather special when you are picking flowers from your garden for someone as I pick I'm thinking of the person they are for. A bit like making a quilt for someone - I always think of the person I'm making the quilt for as I sew
Geraldine and Gus
The flowering cherry trees are all changing colour up the driveway -
The neighbours horse and I are becoming good friends
Plenty of berries for the native birds.
The rhododendron is flowering again - the tree is over 100 years old and was moved with our villa so its rather special.
about 3 more maple leaves are left on the tree.
Aww this is the life.
