“Ah, September! You are the doorway to the season that awakens my soul… but I must confess that I love you only because you are a prelude to my beloved October.”
― Peggy Toney Horton

The first of the month means bills, even more so nowadays! But it also means a step closer to my favourite month – October! I was going to photograph the beautiful flowers we were given over the weekend, but luckily they will save for another day. Which is good news because this sunset opportunity just presented itself shortly after we got in. The sky was literally rolling with light rain creating a beautiful mist. The best bit is that this view won’t change regardless of how many more houses are built because it will eventually be trees – lots of trees! And it’s the view from our bedroom window…not quite matching my old views of the Autumn tree, but special in its own way.

“But nobody ever tells you in advance when you should concentrate on the good times-that’s why you’re supposed to do it every day.”
― Jordan Sonnenblick

We have had a weekend of food, games, laughter and  a spot of shopping coupled with a walk on the meadow! All in all I think a good time was had by all as well and the weather didn’t fail us (for once!)


The baking creations of Friday night didn’t seem to poison anyone either so I have a tiny bit of faith in my cooking! We’ve shown the house off and have had lots of garden advice and a beautiful plant and pot (which will be saved for another blog entry) and the garden is filling nice and slowly with things that can feature in the photography challenge in weeks to come. Plants are for life though, not just for photographic purposes…

I had the time to wander and photograph, which hasn’t happened for  a while. It was nice and in way I felt a bit of creativity that I didn’t know I had lost…creeping back in. I even tried to recreate a fence post photo – as seen below…

It’s almost the anniversary of losing our beautiful girl dog (aka Star) last year. So it seemed fitting that Buddy posed next to her American Oak Tree planted on the meadow in her honour..
