AUTUMN APPROACHING


I have finally stopped waiting for the summer heatwave that never came and have started feeling quite good about the idea of warmer cardigans, socks and cups of tea .




I always get a new interest and urge for plants at the change of seasons. And so I've updated the plants and flowers at the country house to "autumn mode". We've been out there for most of the week and I've been fixing about, running around the yard with the pram, buckets and soil, wearing my old harbour boots. They are great for anything countryside, especially since I never manage to remember to get myself a pair of rubber boots.



I could also have called this post hellofalotta onions.
These are from the vegetable garden at the farm. I can't take any pride in digging these up though (or growing them either), Eddi's aunt brought me these.

Thumbs up for all the gardening work you do. Since pregnancy I've only mown the lawn (for the toxoplasmosis) and now I can't get myself on my knees there... Next week Pieter goes to daycare on mondays and I have some time to do those things.. Or next spring ;)

Hej hopp! Jag har läst HELA din blogg från 2008 och kan räkna mig till ett fan. Har även bloggat om dig vid ett par tillfällen. Men det slog mig igår, jag har ju aldrig kommenterat! Fy mig! Så nu gör jag det. Jag tycker du är underbar!
