Hello my lovelies! So good to see you back here. Today I have a few weekending moments to share with you as well as two recipe cards for you to download and try – a celebration of autumn!
As we move through November, autumn is accelerating. The leaves are falling thick and fast now and no sooner as the leaves have been swept up there is a fresh carpet of leaves to be dealt with. If doesn’t bother me one bit as it is one of the joys of autumn.
By the time this last weekend arrived there was much to be done in the garden. To look at it now you would’nt know that we had spent a good chunk of Saturday tidying up for is looks just the same!
But there is something quite lovely about working in the garden on a crisp autumnal day. It’s chilly no doubt but as your body moves and works you warm up quickly and it is a joy to be out while the sky is clear and bright. I know that these types of days are few and far between in our English winters so I’ll savor those days that I can. I’m thinking I may need to knit a few pairs of fingerless mittens, especially for winter gardening days!
While DH tackled the ever falling waterfall of leaves I pottered about neatening up the pots of mums and moving a few of the pots around. The mums are looking a little bare after their trims but there are lots of buds and I’m hoping that they will put on a second flourish this month before I pack them away and bring out the winter/Christmas decorations. They are not too keen on frost so I have moved them to my front door where there is a little porch to afford them a little shelter. Hopefully, I’ll get away with it.
I brought my pots of cyclmans and whatever this other lovely little plant is with the autumnal berries up onto the deck outside the back of the house. I’m really pleased with this little combination of planting and I think that along with my seasonal mums this will become another seasonal favourite.
After a day in the garden, there is nothing better than a simple supper of homemade roast squash soup and bread. I thought I’d share the recipes with you in case you want to whip up this quick and easy light autumnal weekend lunch/supper. I hope that you will give this simple meal a try this weekend.
