Seeing Red

Autumn Poem

My beautiful daughter, Little Lady, wrote a rather marvellous poem about Autumn. I thought I’d share it with you and use it to start my Autumn post. After a long, hot summer we are all in a state of shock as autumn’s nippy little fingers have finally got their clutches on us. It was a cool 9 degrees on the school run yesterday morning and we got the Big Blankets out (affectionally named The Walrus) for the beds. The garden has been a tapestry of reds, pinks, purples, oranges and yellows; a real feast for the eyes. Even though our Autumn this year has felt more like summer, I’ve still been reaching for my Soup Book. I’ll write a blog about soup soon and share some of my favourite recipes. For now, here are some autumnal photos from my garden.

And some red photos because….well just because really!

And I end this post with my seductive, glossy, hot chilies tucked away in the greenhouse just waiting for me to pick them and turn them into their destiny; otherwise known as Chili Jam. More on this in another post. So much to write about!
