I have noticed that a gathering in has been happening in the last few days. There was the first delivery of wood, damson jam was made and this morning I picked beans, gathered apples and thought about chutney - there are plenty of green tomatoes hanging on bravely. The talk on the weather is of a first autumn storm tomorrow. Time to hunker down and fill the house with the warmth of stew and baking. All of this fills me with a new joy. it is different to summer but there is beauty in it just the same.
Wishing you all a safely gathered weekend x
