Seoul Snapshots

Back from a few days in Korea where the food lived up to all expectations. But still, how nice to be home again.

It has suddenly got very dark, and so hard to get out of bed in the morning. I keep thinking the right thing to do would be to stay at home, pour a glass of something delicious, light a candle and listen to something soothing. Luckily, this weekend that was exactly what we did.

Colourful Chaos

In the garden, everything has collapsed due to a lack of staking, and now it all looks like a bit of a sorry heap. But, it is a very colourful heap which makes me feel happy when I come downstairs on these dark October mornings. The first frost is around the corner so today I will look at these flowers for a few extra minutes before they turn black and the long wait for the new season starts.

Paris shopping

Went to Paris for 36 hours and this is what I came back with. Something that smells good and a few things that taste good.

New Season

Outside it is dark and windy. Inside I am adding splashes of colour to brighten things up. At the weekend we had the first fire of the season. Autumn is definitely here.
