goodbye october


October is gone but certainly won't be forgotten.  It has been a stormy month, in more ways than one. The days have passed in a blur for the most part but things are calming now.

I'm looking forward to November, a month to cosy up, building energy reserves for the pandemonium ahead.

The garden is slowing down, though the general mildness of October has encouraged more grass growth.  I can't quite believe we are still mowing the lawn. 

The berries are still plentiful.  There hasn't been a cold snap to entice our feathered friends to strip the branches of their bounty.  All in good time, I wager.

My moodboard looks sparse this month.  Just a few colours.  I am particularly taken with the burgundy and green of the elderberries.  Nature really does produce the best colour palettes.

Linking up Karin and Asa.

  7. I've given up on our grass for now - I'm telling myself it will provide a nice cosy jungle for passing hedgehogs and the like! Lovely mood board again - the colours in those elderberries are truly beautiful x Jane
