The Last of Summer
This weekend was a time for making the most of the weather as we prepare for the cold days ahead. These nasturtiums are probably some of the last to be picked as they make way for the little nodding faces of winter pansies. I love the colours of nasturtiums, so they were swiftly brought indoors to sit on the kitchen scales and provide something pretty to look when washing up.
It seems that everyone is beginning to cosy up now and many of the blogs that I have been reading have been showing off their crochet blankets and cushions. So I think I might as well join in. Now, I can't crochet or knit so I have had to rely on some lovely charity shop finds. To be honest the wool would have cost far more than I paid for either of them and they were both unused.
The smaller, bright blanket is living on the end of the chaise ready to be whipped off to cover chilly feet.
I thought it was quite unusual to find a blanket that was colour co-ordinated and this larger green blanket is just right at the bottom of our bed.
Here's to gorgeous Autumn days and to cosying up on the sofa with hot chocolate and marshmallows on chilly evenings. (Green and Black's Hot Choc of course!)
