On my desk this very minute – mmm, smell that! Heaven!

There was a burst of sun this morning, on a lovely Saturday with no plan. Well, sort of no plan, there is proper work to be done this afternoon on the computer and that’s why I’m sitting here now. Also the sun has gone behind the clouds and quite frankly the garden has gotten the better of me.

I pottered in the garden. My poor sad neglected garden. It’s all bare and brown and stick-like. Did I leave the carpet of autumn leaves for too long? I really have no idea what I should be doing. Should I feed anything? Should I water? Can I plant? Please let me plant something! At least I got to weed. And a bit of dead-heading. And the daphne! My daphne smells too divine to leave out there.
So I’ve made a cuppa and am about to do some work (if working with Kids With Crayons drawings can ever be called work) and my heavenly scented daphne will keep me company.
How’s your weekend panning out?
The culprit of my current garden woe, the leaf carpet was magnificent at the time now it’s nothing but a sad old brown and bare skeleton of a garden.
All is forgiven, lovely autumn, when you put on such a show. Autumn glory all gloriously captured by Crayon Chick on Instagram.
It’s a tough job but somebody’s got to do it! Gorgeous necklace by Kids With Crayons.

Frankie and Ray - Ah, Daphne. It makes Winter bearable, oh, that and a bit of a sunshine every now and again! Can’t help with the gardening, my old bloke has taken possession of ours. (just as well really!)
