However, slowly but surely it's time for the autumn foliage to take over from the summer flowers and shrubs. Everything is jewel coloured here at the Fairyglade, Amber, ruby, emerald, citrine ...
It’s time to go through the wardrobe, pull out jumpers and cardigans, find hot water bottles at the back of the kitchen cupboards. Pull out an extra blanket from the airing cupboard, (how I wish I had an airing cupboard).
It’s time for dressing gowns and slippers.
So cute and sold in aid of breast cancer
It’s time to get on with Christmas crafts and make lists. Who had what last year, who will get what this year?
It’s time to get on with winter crafting, knitting and crochet with soft wool which is too warm to handle in the heat of summer.
It’s time to close the curtains at tea time, light the lamps and candles, put a log or two on the fire.
Time for reading by the fireside with mugs of hot tea from a teapot with it's own blanket...
To this.....though it still needs a bit of work and different flowers I think.
