Autumn colours

Even though we had snow and sleet just a couple of weeks ago it is only now that the colours of autumn are really showing themselves. And, there are only 12 days left of autumn for 2014 so maybe a bit late but maybe not, I haven't kept detailed records of things like that. Perhaps I should or someone should/ does.

The asparagus fronds have had the odd yellowed fronds but this week they all seem to be yellowing at once. I think they are quite pretty like this.


Thanks to Janice, I always have nasturtiums popping up. Janice sent me some seeds in a swap quite some time ago and now they pop up here and there and remind me of her. I like that a lot!

The crepe myrtles here are just about to drop their leaves but unfortunately they bypassed the flowering this season. I think the heat and dry of the past summer was just too much for them. Next season I hope will be more favourable.


Tim had his first day of annual leave on Friday so we had a day out and about. Or as I'm going to call it now, a daycation (I just read that term on Pinterest). Unfortunately the girls have school so they missed out. On Friday we got to see a whole lot of art and countryside and make a few new friends along the way. It was a sweet day. I think a picnic is on the cards next week as long as we can get all of our chores done.

I've got tomato soup on the simmer  and some pull apart cheese and chive rolls rising for our Sunday soup night dinner. Yum... I hope.

I love autumn colours. We don't have a lot of colour here because of the climate but I love going to the tablelands around us and seeing the colour that nature brings.

Autumn colours are the best. It would have been lovely driving around and seeing them on you daycation. Nice for you have some time together, just the two of you. I' m glad the nasturtiums keep popping up. They are the best type of plants.
