A Bonny Sunday

This autumn sunshine is just right it seems. Not too harsh like the summer but with a little more warmth than winter. It's almost impossible not to feel your spirits lift (if you let them). Throw in some happy flowers and actually catching a glimpse of my son, Tom, on television (I haven't seen him since early January) and it was a very nice day indeed. If you watched the "Road to the Show" program this afternoon you might have seen him too.

Dahlia... again!

Pink flowering strawberry.
What I'm also enjoying about the autumn is the change back to standard time and nightfall is earlier. It's cosy.

You're a funny thing, Tracy - I don't think I know anyone else who likes the early sunset hours. But yes, it is cozier. It may have something to do with your milder climate and the fact that you can still do much outdoors all year. Here, we know that when it gets cold, we're kind of cooped up. I always long for daylight time and just now we are finally able to be outside a little.

I love your cosmos! xoxo

I just said to my husband there is a bit of a nip in the breeze that is blowing. I love Autumn and Spring not to hot not to cold and Autumn has the change of colour of the leaves and Spring brings in new colour and life. I love that pink dahlia the colour and how the petals are shaped.
