Autumn Colours

Anyone know this castle/ruin?  I found the watercolour in Aunt Kate’s papers.  I would love to know where it is.

I continue transcribing Aunt Kate’s diaries – I am on 1915 now and we are in the middle of the First World War. I also have some of her sketch books and family photo albums so am scanning them and inserting them into the relevant diary.  It is fascinating.  I am hopeful that Kate will mention sketching a castle ruin by a river somewhere.

For fun, I rode Haakon this afternoon in the school.  It was nice to be just him and me again.  Like old times.  We had some great conversations.

When I put him back in his field, he popped back to tell me that he wanted more carrots.

He had seen me go and find some for this ginger ninja (I love Klængur’s most hopeful face!)

While they were munching, BeAnne and I wandered about the garden looking for the last flowers.

We have a few Rosa rugosa ‘Alba’ flowers clinging on.

Monbretia (crocosmia x crocosmiiflora) is everywhere too.  According to “Gardener’s World” apparently it is a “troublesome hybrid”.  I am just grateful for the flowers.


Our garden is full of autumn colour.  This is my favourite time of year.  I always say that.
