The weather has been kind these last two days, with some gentle evening sun and a hint of warmth still in the air. Last night I cut some dahlias to bring inside, and had a little play with my camera at the same time.
Seems to be a good year for dahlias - the 'Rip City' is particularly abundant.
Continuing on the same colour theme, I made this soup for my supper. It's simple and delicious - try it if you love beetroot. I used chopped thyme in my dumplings, instead of fennel fronds.
And I watched this film. It was achingly beautiful. I was tempted to watch it all over again once the credits had rolled, but I could feel the evening slipping away from me, and knew it was time to switch off. I feel like I'm drifting at the moment and am having difficulty in focusing on the necessary, if you know what I mean.
