Monday evening blues.

Summer where did you go? Actually, Autumn where did you go? I was quite enjoying the golden trees outside my bedroom window and the crisp clear days. But now it's cold outside and raining and after a day of delayed trains and too many meetings I'm pining after a bit of sunshine.

This photo I took in Bruges of this cheery bunting against a bright blue sky, cheers me up a little. Almost as much as my hot water bottle, duvet and book are going to shortly. What cheers you up when the daily grind gets you down?

An Autumnal trip to Petersham nurseries.

Happy Halloween weekend. Do you have loads of exciting things planned? I don't and I'm really looking forward to it. It's been a bit manic and I've been a very bad blogger of late! But things seemed to have calmed down a bit. Well slightly. For the next five minutes anyway. Here are some pics from our day trip last weekend to the lovely Petersham Nurseries.

Despite the fact that I loathe the colour orange and am not really a fan of anything pumpkin related food wise, I loved the wonderful displays of gourds at Petersham Nurseries. The bell jars were my favourites.

I highly recommend a trip to the nurseries for lunch, tea or even just for a look around.  We had a lovely lunch and I came away with a  very beautiful Maidenhair fern that is sitting in front of me as I type.
