Midweek Cheer

Now, at last, it feels like autumn. Not that I wanted the summer to end. Who needs rainy mornings, or that sudden recognition of chill at the door?

To redress the balance, here’s a beautiful orange poppy I bought in Bury St Edmunds market a few weeks ago. It’s still flowering – just.  A cheery smile as I left the house for work today!

Summer’s Last Blaze

August 31st – all too soon.

It’s raining again today: another traditional Bank Holiday washout. As a remedy for the last-day-of-August glooms, I’m prescribing some pictures: a defiant rally of blazing colour from a couple of days ago in my garden.
