Wow, what a glorious Indian Summer we are being treated to! Together with May, September is my favourite month and both are often surprisingly good in the weather stakes, this year being a classic example.
I took the opportunity, after the school run, to take a few snaps in the morning sunshine. This is my outdoor crafting space (click image to view larger);
They have just baled the second lot of hay this year and, I don’t know about you, I rather miss the old way of baling. Somehow the green polythene wrapping that farmers prefer nowadays isn’t as aesthetically pleasing is it?
Tess hopped up on the day bed where the quilt is warming up nicely in the already hot sunshine.
I’ve got a WIP to show you; a Christmas present of a blanket for a family member.
I’m also going to paint these two bedside tables that I picked up in a charity shop yesterday for a song;
The leaves are dropping from the Elderberry bush already so soon the hens will have to find shade elsewhere in the garden.
Mind you, they perch on the crossbar underneath the table sometimes and it does provide shade later on in the afternoon. Amber likes to sit there just to be close to us.
We have a young apple tree in the garden which isn’t doing very well although there are a few apples this year again.
But the hens LOVE them!
Enjoy the sunshine!
