Autumn and so on
Who could grudge the squirrel a few of the birds' nuts, especially when he has to work so hard for them?
I swept up these leaves yesterday. Today it looks exactly the same.
And it's still very mild...
... so that the begonias soldier on...
... and the polyanthus think it might be spring.
Still, Christmas is coming - and in a burst of organisedness...
... I made a little skirt for our Christmas tree stand. Wait for the stand to break when we actually insert the tree, so that we have to buy a new one of different dimensions... .
I've just had a very sad email - well, a lovely email, but bearing sad news: my very first bloggy friend, who blogged under the name The Old Professor, has died at the age of 93. We've corresponded for about nine years and he was such fun. I suppose it's a good thing to die suddenly at 93 when you've been in good health and in full possession of your faculties. But though we never met - he lived in California - I shall miss him a lot. It was so kind of his daughter to write to his virtual friends.
