The weather today is decidedly autumnal. There is cold wind blowing in gusts yet in the sun, it is hot. That is how it was in town at cricket this morning. As if the weather is trying to decide which season it wants to be. At home though it has definitely settled for autumn. The sun is a little more friendly and the nights are cool enough for a blanket. It is lovely.The change of season is bringing the pumpkins that little bit closer. I have only eaten pumpkin twice in about six months and I am waiting (im)patiently for these to be ready.
Thankfully the the two vines growing in the compost heap turned out to be recognisable varieties. The butternut and the jap. They were both in flower at different times so the seeds should be good for saving too. I can't wait to taste their pumpkiny goodness.

The windy weather we have had has brought down a lot of bark and a few tree limbs too. This one thankfully missed everything that it could have hit and landed on the grass causing no damage. Now it will be cut up and become future firewood.
I am working on a few little projects behind the scenes. A swap for the Girls day in the Country organised by Kerry. I'm looking forward to meeting some fellow bloggers in Nundle in a couple of weeks for a day of stitching and fun. A little thank you gift and some other swaps too. I'll post some pictures soon.

"The sun is a little more friendly" - is a nice way of putting it.

What pretty countryside you have there, Tracy!
