Well hello September! I’ve become a little Autumn obsessed already, our daily walk in the forest has opened my eyes to some of the early signs and changes. I totally did a little ‘eee!’ noise when I saw a yellowy orange leaf on a tree yesterday. I don’t enjoy Summer like the other seasons, maybe it’s a pale person thing, or maybe it’s just that if I had my way every day would be corduroy & knitwear weather, gathering kindling from the forest and lighting the woodburner…

At the weekend we visited Grandma & Grandad, the joys of Grandma’s home cooked Sunday roasts at the stuff of legends around these parts. Many of the vegetables we ate were grown in Grandad’s garden so it seemed only right to go out and have a look at how his garden has been growing.

I love how Kitty takes straight to the garden, though the majority of her time is spent picking berries!


Ok so I *might* have overdone it with the hydrangea photos. Talking of hydrangeas, Kitty and I visited Exbury Gardens yesterday and had the nicest time exploring huge hydrangea bushes and watching them being watered – photos to come (now there’s a surprise!)

I’ll leave you with some wild sweet peas. I always shoot a double take look at them just because to see sweet peas growing along the ground instead of upwards seems so alien.

Thanks to all who joined in last week, some faves include: Cotswold village gardens, shades of pink & the allotment in August.

I feel that I should add an apology if I’m not managing to find you on Instagram as much these days, since the feed changes they made I don’t even get to see the most recent photos, but suggestions, some of which are d day old – it’s really very frustrating!

  1. you are surrounded by so much beauty Annie and you share it so well. thank you. i’m ready for fall too. but not winter….xx -Claudia

  2. oh I’m so ready for winter (4 weeks in december) the raspberries look delicious and i think i’d head straight for them also

  3. Our raspberries have just started and are so sweet I am not sharing them with anyone as yet (gardener’s bonus!). I too love autumn and am longing for some rain again – everything is looking parched here in Normandy. And much as I love hydrangeas I think I like that giant dahlia even more – what a beauty!

  4. I’m looking forward to Autumn too and was overjoyed to see the grass in our local park covered in brown leaves at the edges this week, yay! As a fewllow pale person also I’m looking forward to not having to hide indoors on hot days through fear of ending up like a lobster. Wish I could taste those raspberries… and the Sunday roast. x
