What a glorious Autumn week it has been here. I love the glowing colour of this crocosmia - a common sight all over the island right now, where it is often grown as a windbreak. it really comes into it's own at this time of year.
Thankfully the anticipated storm passed us by, although I know some areas on the mainland had high winds. We enjoyed being out and about most days, appreciating the colours of the season. So many lovely things about the past week - here are some of them.
Sunny mornings, still warm enough to sit outside with an early cup of tea
and watch the tide seep silently into the sea-loch.
Driving into town, beautiful skies, straight roads, and good music playing on the radio. Feeling my heart signing along with the sheer joy of it all.
Finding subtle Autumn colours down at the seashore,
and enjoying an impromptu beach picnic with a boy.
Finding more obvious signs of the season, strolling through the castle grounds
and enjoying a delicious lunch with a girl.
Celebrity football matches (Police V Fire Brigade)
Family Fun days,
and huge bowls of home-made popcorn.
I hope you are enjoying the changing colours of your season, and that you have some space and time to bask in the everyday beauty.
Another busy week ahead for us - a lot of crofting and crafting coming up - and a new arrival! All will be revealed in the coming week, so join me then.
♥ Love and blessings to you all for the coming week♥
