Things I've loved this week .....
:: warm autumn sunshine, late afternoon sun and long shadows
:: pink skies at sunrise
:: playing on the beach with the dogs
:: starting a new knitting project
:: collecting elderberries and rosehips to make syrups
:: eating my first crumble of the season - blackberry, apple and elderberry
:: chatting with my sisters
:: being treated to lunch by a friend
:: painting on pebbles and sea glass
And I love the way the colour fades on hydrangeas....
slowly seeping from the petals until they are pale and delicate and even more beautiful.
Spread a little love around this weekend, not only to those who expect it, but also to those who don't. On Simplicity has written a wonderful post about love being the world's only truly renewable resource. Read and be inspired.
This seems a good time to welcome a new blogger. Can you remember what it was like in those first few weeks, when you wondered if anyone would drop by and visit, let alone leave a comment? (admit it, we all like comments). So please go and say hi to Kim at Heart in the Country. She's got lots of lovely chickens!
Happy weekend - I think the forecast is sun, sun, sun (at least for the far south west)!
