I’m feeling a bit lost this week. It’s a big week for my youngest son, who’s starting in reception. It’s a big week for me too, with a lot of mixed feelings.
To soothe these feelings, I’m concentrating on simple things. I love Autumn and looking for pretty flowers and other natural finds is a great head-clearing exercise.
Yesterday I wandered out into our garden in search of pretty blooms for the house. Thanks to the wet weather, the garden is very lush and lots of things are still flowering. The Dahlias I bought on the market a few months ago, are thriving. As is the pretty purple Verbena. The Kerria is having a second flush of pretty yellow flowers too. I also snipped off a few bits of evergreen shrubs and one of the boys’ miniature sunflowers.
A little bit of snipping and arranging later…
I love the combination of colours here – it’s classic late summer, early autumn.
I’ve been busy pinning lots of new Autumn ideas over on Pinterest – do take a look!
