Autumn has arrived in my garden...and in my person! The hibernation urge is beginning, cooking stews...hearty puddings....knitting slippers.....feather duvets.....hot baths.....I could go on all day. The sad part about my hibernating is that I am packing to move in two weeks so all those comforting warm thoughts have to be put on hold. I see the pear tree laden with fruit and no time right now to be bottling...blackberries being eating by the birds...and most exciting of all a second crop of raspberries...I think I'll miss most them, along with all my best tomatoes. I bought a packet of 'rainbow mix' seeds off trade me in spring and the fruit, which is a lucky draw of mixed heirloom varieties, has just started to ripen up. I'm moving to a beautiful little cottage, my partners house, which we are selling and hoping to upgrade to a bigger character house around the corner...complete with sewing room....drool! But for now we will be nestling into our little cottage with no chooks or vege patch.....sigh. I will keep telling myself that sacrifice is all part of life-change-seasons-cycles etc.
Hope you are all enjoying the autumnal changes as well
