the late summer garden
August is coming to an end and the heat of a few weeks ago has dissipated. There is a hint of Autumn in the air.
Not that I mind. I like the onset of Autumn
My pale skin means I have never enjoyed extreme heat. The gentle warmth of Spring and Autumn are much more my thing.
In the garden, there are signs of the changing seasons. The fresh lush green growth of Spring has faded. In its place come russets and browns. The odd crinkly brown leaf, a withered stem, indicators of what is to come.
A delicious, crisp, sweet eating apple.
They are not perfect specimens, it has to be said, but what's a blemish or two between friends!
The plums, other than those that have been transformed into jam or tucked up in the freezer have been consumed.
My breakfast for the past week or so has been softly stewed plums with creamy yoghurt, a sprinkle of nuts and seeds and a drizzle of maple syrup.
The past couple of weeks have been very busy.
Aside from tending the garden and lottie, we have been helping lovely daughter and her husband move house.
I have been on duty helping to pack, clean.
Mr digandweed was allocated the important job of entertaining Tiny Girlie and keeping her out of mischief!
I'm looking forward to a slightly quieter week ahead!
Hoping your week is a good one.
