Autumn days have to be grabbed with both hands when they are dry, and especially if they are sunny.
There are a lot of grey skies, and dark afternoons to endure over the next few months, so I intend to enjoy every moment of autumn whilst I can.
The leaves are just beginning to turn here in Middle England. The trees are still holding most of their leaves, but the veggie growing season has almost ended. I picked sweetcorn this afternoon, and still have a few tomatoes ripening on the vines, but most of the veg plot was dug over this weekend, ready to earn its rest over the winter.
I also have a new quilt I'm working on (you didn't really expect me to finish one before I started the next did you?), but I'm keeping it under wraps for now, and I still have the final post on organic fabrics and yarns to write - I'm keeping that for a rainy day - it will be a good thing to do when the weather keeps me inside.
I hope you are enjoying autumn, if it is autumn (or fall) for you. If it's spring where you live, then lucky you!
