I know, I know, I keep taking you to Stourhead, but it is such a good place to take grandchildren during holiday. They have the freedom here to run around and explore.
A week ago it felt like winter, and in fact, we had the heating on couple of evenings! But it is getting warmer again.
There are no blossoms at Stourhead at this time of year, but some of the colour is beginning to look quite autumnal.
Back at home little fingers are busy with a felting needle and using pastry cutter as a guide, making decoration for a purse.
I still haven't got back to sewing since back from our holiday. I actually took a box with 3 projects away with me, but none of them had seen the light of day! I am doing some knitting though, working on another 6 squares for my blanket. I hope to show you those soon.
I did some baking yesterday, I made almond and vanilla biscuits, a Norwegian recipe from this book.
They smell divine and are so delicious! But most of them actually made it into the biscuit jar - for now anyway!
This morning was warm enough for us to have our breakfast in the garden! Heaven!
Our garden has done well, considering that this is the first year and that it was little neglected while we were away. Our neighbour looked looked after it, but the weather was so bad, that it was out of his hands.
the fig is doing very well with lots of new growth
the crab apple tree is really showing off, so young and so many apples,
There is still lots of colour in the garden.
Two new additions to our garden, purchased yesterday
and anemone "Wild Swan"
isn't she a beauty?
The coming week should get brighter and warmer again, so we could be in for a nice September.
In the meantime, have a good week!
