I love /hate Autumn.

I love this time of the year .The colours of the trees are beautiful,I quite like drawing the curtains and being cosy and warm inside.
I don’t like (I don’t like the word “hate”) Autumn because we have three huge trees in our garden and there are leaves everywhere.The sycamore and horse chestnut have lost all their leaves so this morning we raked,blew ,gathered all the leaves we could.We filled our brown recycling bin.The third tree is a beech and that still has loads of leaves still on it.It has been a beautiful day here in North Wales so although it was hard work at least the weather was ok.
This afternoon we went to our U3A Gardening Group(as though we hadn’t had enough of gardens).The title of the talk was “Mediaeval Gardens”.The talk was excellent,well illustrated and well presented with a bit of humour thrown in.
Yesterday we went to the U3A Open Meeting.The subject of that was The Story of the Conway Tunnels.That is the tunnel that went under the River Conway to relieve traffic in this historic town with its wonderful castle etc.It is good to go to these events as it keeps the mind sharp but is also good socially.
Now time to wind down for a quiet weekend.
Have a good weekend.Bx


  1. I am glad you are enjoying your very fun events, there is always so much to learn. I hope you are enjoying your loom. I have made many scarves and table runners. I know there is a way to make clothing but I have no idea how to do it. Wishing you a wonderful weekend.

  2. My favourite seasons are Spring and Autumn, I am not a fan of Summer as its usually too hot for me and I don't like the cold in Winter. I bet you make nice compost with all those leaves.

  3. I like all the seasons, even grey wet days bring the joy of guilt free crafting. I watched a You tube video about the Ashford table looms and just have to decide which size to buy. I figure on working through the leftovers to learn as I go. I saw Sandra of Cherry Heart using hers a couple of weeks ago and that sparked my interest. What size is your loom?

  4. I love to see tha fallen leaves but it is a tiring job to clear them all up. Most of our leaves blew into the pond so that had to be cleared too. I like the sound of the talk on Mediaeval Gardens you went to:)

  5. The medieval talk sounds like something I would enjoy I do like history especially this period, although my knowledge is slim.
