Month of contrasts

I've been re-potting some of my plants and bringing them indoors, as there was a frost two mornings ago. Brilliant sunshine all day, frost at night.
In the space of an hour, I picked a geranium cutting with new buds on a stem.........

then found this leaf up the road which has changed to the most beautiful colours........

Looking for a castle

On arriving back from the Art Market last weekend, all of my stock and display items were stacked in my living room from the van. The next morning, exhausted, I surveyed the mountain of shelving, boxes and packages, and thought "I need a castle to live in", meaning a metaphorical one for more space.
During the day the thought developed into a real castle, so I asked a good friend if she knew of any going cheap - very cheap. "No", she said, " and if I did I'd have moved in myself!"  Ah, right.

I think I am going to write to Her Majesty and ask her if she fancies taking in a lodger - quite like the idea of living in THE Palace. It'll help with her heating bills, and to boot, she just might get her chandeliers dusted for free.

And here it is........

I have spent what time I can this summer making new stock.
Now, a new venture for me, as I have never been to a fair in Bristol before. If anyone can make it , the more the merrier! Look forward to seeing you there!

Sunday 19th September, 10.30 a.m - 4.30 p.m, at the Paintworks in Bristol
