Because it’s not the big goals and successes in life that bring true happiness, but the little joys that you choose to notice each day.
Morning. Fabulous mackerel sky.
I rescued these red cactus dahlias, in a sorry state, from a client’s compost bin weeks ago. Now they are lighting up the garden!
This potted sycamore is the first to turn yellow.
And then very quickly orange!
I added some gorgeous smoky quartz to my collection. There’s a rainbow locked inside.
My lovely desk, which is really borrowed from my Mum. I’ve spent a lot of time here this week!
Watched the sun set from the train.
There it goes.
People over there had a rather different view!
Planted up some winter pots for a client, with cineraria, cyclamen, skimmia, heather and carex ‘Evergold’, and elsewhere some chrysanthemums, wallflowers and ivy.
Looking back over September’s blessings in my bullet journal.
We went to see The Little Unsaid play. I freaking love them!
Pretty shadows. Once these flowers are dry, hopefully they’ll look nice on my nature shelf over winter.
Went to my little niece’s first birthday party. She preferred the strawberries to the cake.
An ocean of self-seeded winter purslane (aka claytonia) coming up at the community garden. This is a really fabulous low-maintenance edible, but wow, can it take over!
Spotted this beautiful green ground beetle: harpalus affinis. They eat weed seeds and little pests such as aphids and root fly larvae, so they’re great to have in the garden!
