I’ve started to notice that things are changing round here and I don’t just mean the leaves on the trees are falling. Yesterday morning I noticed that the garden bench was missing, and surely the ping pong table has disappeared too. Earlier I went to pick some tomatoes from the potager and I was met with newly rotovated earth, no tomatoes. Paul has started his ‘shutting up the house’ procedure, he likes to be well prepared and not leave things until the last minute.
This morning he pruned the roses right back from the barn wall and this evening I see that the solar lights and garden lantern have also disappeared. And the parasol. Crikey, we’re not off until next weekend!
Your time in France seems to have flown by this year. Is it just me or does it feel like that to you too?ReplyDelete
Absolutely whizzed by this year. I suppose it's been quite eventful what with Rick's arrival and then the girls coming over.Delete
This year seems to have been the fastest year I have ever known!Delete
Rather a nostalgic feeling, I'm sure, as things are put away for another year.ReplyDelete
It does make me feel rather sad.Delete
Is he a Virgo? LolReplyDelete
Over here, we're hacking away at all the year's excess growth. There does seem an awful lot of it this year! Does every single house have its own resident pair of Doves? We certainly do.ReplyDelete
The wisteria is the worst, it's trying to take over the house.Delete
We've just put our little house in Crete 'to bed' and I always feel really sad whilst doing it! Coming back to Storm Brian was a bit of a come down. Ah well - it's all downhill towards Christmas now.ReplyDelete
It's been beautifully sunny and warm here for most of October, that makes it even harder to pack up and leave it all behind for the winter.Delete
It's been lovely all through October in the East of England. Nothing to get gloomy about except living in a flat....Delete
The flat is too small now. I'm going to look for a house in Norfolk!Delete
Obviously Paul was a boy scout - "be prepared!"ReplyDelete
He was a Cub! You know what he's like.Delete
