The saddest part......

The saddest part of autumn is the goodbyes, and the short days. Soon my mornings will be too dark to enjoy much of the garden before I head for work. The birds will get their seeds all though the winter, so I will be out every morning, but my eyes will miss their daily feed, the colours of the garden.
Pink, light blue, white.....spots of treasures along every path, in every bed. I drink in the beauty, the sight, the smell, my fingertips touching the velvet surface of a late leave.

And always when I walk I look for colours for my food palette.
Cooking is a highlight of the day.

Britt-Arnhild, your hydrangea looks great. It is sad to say goodbye to the summer. It gets dark here at 8 p.m. - what about you?

I wish I liked to cook. I "want" to like to cook. But I really don't! Anyway, just found your blogs through sheer happenstance. I'm basically a gardener in East Texas with a little decorating and stuff thrown in. I'm not familiar with your climate. I'll be back for a visit.

Though it is sad to say goodbye to autumn and the bright days, there are also a lot of positive things about the coming seasons and the long evenings inside. Cooking and having guests is one of the highlights indeed!
