Just looking in the quiet of the morning.

This morning there was no electricity, it was supposed to be off for one hour this afternoon.
So I sat and ate my breakfast in the gloom and looked at the things on the wall in front of me.
How interesting and enjoyable just to have the time to look in total peace at things I see every day.

Last of the summer flowers.

Just had to pick these last few bright sunny flowers.
I love this little shelf and the flowers look so good against the stone wall.

Autumn colours.

I went out picking apples today and couldn't resist collecting some wonderful autumn flowers at the same time.
The soft colours look so good together.
Pie decided she wanted to pose beside them - clever cat.

September lunch in the sun.

A beautiful September day here with warm sunshine and blue skies.
After working in the garden and checking on my pumpkins and squashes I made our lunch.
Sitting in the sunshine to eat is always enjoyable.
We had goat cheese with lovely fresh bread , little plates with our beetroot and radish along with tomatoes and cucumber.

Hand made felt.

On Sunday I went over to see an exhibition by craftspeople .
I was really interested in talking to a young English woman called Kate Smith who is making felt.

I couldn't resist buying some of these wonderful bright felt flower brooches which will brighten my spirits in the winter months.

The bio fair comes to Mur de Bretagne.

Last weekend the annual bio fair came to Mur de Bretagne, our nearest small town.
People come from everywhere to visit the fair which takes over all the roads.

I love these large chunky blocks of handmade soap, they are good to look at as well as to use.

All these products are made from hemp oil.

I remember seeing these in Habitat when I was in my twenties, they were the " in thing " to have at the time.

I loved the bright colours of these felted coats for children, such fun to wear.

This wonderful sculpture is actually a home for insects like ladybirds .

Onion harvest.

A sunny warm weekend.
Knowing that the weather was going to change I set to to string the onion harvest.
Using one of the trees to suspend the strings the onions were worked in together.
I left them hanging in the tree for the rest of the day.
Saturday evening they were all brought in - 10 strings in all.
Another good harvest.
