How to put in the week
It's been a very mild autumn so far and there's still colour in the garden, though mainly from tender plants which will die in the first sharp frost.
I'll rescue some of them and bring them inside - attempting not to import the various beasties lurking in the compost. Slug trails on the carpet: not good. But at the moment there are still flowers despite the lower light levels so I'll wait a few days.
This chrysanthemum is glorious. I love the colour - which is slightly redder and less cerise than it looks here.
I've been doing a bit of gardening. Cassie always likes to help.
I've also seen quite a lot of the grandbabies.
Grandson has been very unwell - when he gets a cold, he becomes alarmingly asthmatic. Yesterday he was very poorly but today, on a course of steroids, he was considerably better. The gloves are to protect his hands - he has eczema on them and on other parts of his body - poor little wheezy, itchy little chap.
I've now washed and ironed every bit of my fabric stash because Thimbleanna said I should. The pieces did fray a bit but now they're all trimmed and folded and tidy. I always do what Anna tells me.
