Colouring in the days


It seems to me that autumn is truly one of the most generous of seasons. This weekend the sun shone warmly upon us and our days were tinged with gold and red, orange and copper, chestnut brown and mossy green. Today is a little greyer but from my windows I can see that the dark pencil lines of the landscape have been artfully coloured in along the way and I feel buoyed, relieved that there is still colour to be celebrated amongst the grey.



I gathered crab apples from the garden. I plan to preserve them as jelly but right now I can hardly bare to boil them up, so vibrantly colourful in all their red and yellow glory, my heart soars every time I look at them.

Beautiful! I love the photos and the way you write. The crab apples are such pretty fruits, like a cross between cherries and apples. I hope you enjoy your crab apple jelly - maybe keep just a few back to look at?

Thought I'd do a spot of blog hopping and am so glad to have landed here. The crab apple jelly will be gorgeous I'm sure but for now your fruits are like jewels.

They are a beautiful colour and most needed at the moment when the days are so changeable though hopefully they will transform into golden jars of jelly.

Have a lovely day - the sun is on/off shining here today. Nice and blustery though.

Beautiful. We still have far too much green here and not enough red and gold!

Beautiful colours, it seems a shame to cook them. But the tang of the jelly will be wonderful. Pure bottled autumn. Jane x

I love Jane's comment: 'Pure bottled autumn"--so true!

Your writing about autumn sent me to the thought that I am living in the 'autumn of my life'--I can be more generous, maybe I have less color (in my hair), but oh! it's a glorious and vibrant time of life!

Ms Poshyarns,

Your writing style is truly wonderful. I have read your blog for some time but never comment. Your prose and flow are delightful. Have you considered writing a book or publishing something?

The images combined with your writing must be suitable for wider audience?

I love Autumn too! You've captured it so beautifully.

Beautiful! Your crabapples are so much prettier than ours -- ours are much too small to do anything with! I hope you'll show us pictures of your jelly!
