September Love

A patchwork of reasons to be loving September…..

:: One lovely and tough sunflower (of dozens planted) that made it through our monsoon summer – shining at me outside my window

:: Handknitted socks on their way to me, knitted by a best friend for my birthday

:: 10 weeks wheat free, and feeling so SO much better…particularly once I discovered a magical chocolate cake recipe (thanks Dom)

:: My front garden sitting prettily in September’s sunshine

:: A jar of homemade raspberry jam that the pixies left (o.k, my next door neighbour Gari) on my doorstep one afternoon

:: A fab party in our local apple orchard for my friend Susie – a tree bedecked with ribbons!

:: My birthday hat of all splendidness…..which I have been waiting for a break in the rain, to wear

:: Lots of great vegetables at our Stroud Community Supported farm which I visit each Wednesday morning

:: Sighing over my friend Jilly’s new vintage teaset business, and hiring out a cake stand myself for the Cake & Bake show

:: Feeling quite peachy about my tomatoes growing in the greenhouse, yay!

:: Laughing at our eccentric and quirky Country Fayre held at our local pub, the Crown & Sceptre

:: Cucumbers and Courgettes which will keep rolling in through September

:: My dear friends, packing cards like crazy, in the run up to a show, to help me out

:: Loving the fact that we have our own local spring with fresh, clear, ice cold water to fill bottles from

:: As small as my garden is, I have still managed to cram in an apple tree, cherry, apricot and plum….so apple crumble all round this   month

Thank you September, I love yooooooooooooooo!

Love the trying had to master sock making this Autumn/Winter… I just need another thumb..heh heh..loving the abundance in your photos… Well done you with the Wheat free diet 🙂 I’m doing caffeine free ( except for chocolate!!!! that would be torture) and now I can feel when I am tired and so slow down..drinking yummy lemon verbena tea and also a hibiscus/peppermint mix….I did this for 10 years 1983-93…had to learn to ride a caffeine high again…not sure why I did? My tomatoes are all green time to gather in and make chutney….mmmm XXXXX
