I has been another long hot summer - I really am not made for an Australian summer - I am made for Scotland. Now it's finally cooler in the morning, the air is crisp, the light is softer and I have more energy. I will be a very happy sprout when I know the last 30 deg day for the season is past and this coolness is with us for many months. As you know the past few weeks have been very, very busy here. But the end is in sight and Autumn will be the perfect time to give my garden some long needed attention - it will be good, good, good for my soul.
Autumn will be the season I finish my Flair. I am finally up to the band and only have the sleeves to go. It is looking quite nice, the malabrigo is magnificient - but it has taken so long if it doesn't look perfect when I put it on I will be quite miserable.
Autumn will be the season I will finish my cable rib socks, only started to prevent me going insane with plain knitting. These ones travel in my bag and I was lucky enough yesterday to have two meetings in the wonderful Australian National Botanic Gardens with a half hour gap between. The stress falls away in a place like this.
Being in the gardens I recalled the expression 'feel blue, touch green' -and so I touched all the green I needed to get me through the day.
