Autumn gardening







October has slipped in quietly with days too hot to garden in the afternoons.

I've started doing casual light gardening as a paid job. Enough to breathe a little easier and buy some things that are needed. Not enough to squeeze out anything else!

'Too hot to garden in the afternoon'....in Wales in October. Not something you say very often, I'm sure. But probably as hot as here, where we're running at about 30 today. Enjoy it while you can. Mug arrived in London on Friday morning, thanks. No problems. J collected it before leaving for W Wales and here.

Autumn indeed! I hear you're having what we colonists call an 'Indian Summer'. I love the pix, especially the sky and the lone tree in the field. Evocative. Congrats on the new job.

Those skies are morning skies!
Good to know that the mug is safely on its way.

Your garden and ceramics are just beautiful. So pleased I found you. Yes, I hear you are having great weather over there...wonderful!

I smiled when you wrote about expecting pears to give a 'proper amount' (my words) when canning. Yup..a load of tomatoes cooked down to four cups tonight... ;-( A lot of work for four cups of tomato jam.

Gorgeous misty photos bringing out the beauty of nature at this time of year and tying in neatly with a post I've just done. It is a bit hot though!

Beautiful photos: especially the second one of the tree. It screams autumn, but in a good way!
