The last summer flowers
While I am writing this post sunshine is coming in through the windows. It's cold and windy outside, but the blue sky and white clouds that float by make everything look pretty.
The garden is slowly changing. The leaves are turning red and golden and the last summer flowers are fading away. The smell is different too. I find it hard to describe, but it's a combination of wet earth and old cellars :-) Last week I picked, what I think will be, the last summer flowers of the season. A gorgeous bunch of Sedum, Anemones, Cosmea Sea Shell and a variety of Dahlia's and Zinnia's. Before getting rid of the dried up pyramids of Sweet Peas, I picked the last flowers to take home with me. Next time we visit we will probably put the pink and purple tulip bulbs we bought recently into the ground.
This week I received a beautifully wrapped parcel from New York. Out of the turquoise wrapping paper with matching ribbon, came a stylish beret handmade by Frances from the blog City views country dreams! Dear Frances, you are a treasure for sending me such a lovely present. I love the green and blue colours you chose, the little buttons on the side and the big Pom Pom on top! It will look perfect with my coat. I hope I will be able to show you a photo soon.
Wish you all a wonderful weekend!
