So here it is, merry autumn everybody

The equinox. This morning was wet. The sort of rain I mentioned yesterday. We were very pleased to be inside. Daughter drew kiwi fruit for her art homework and made a start with her history homework. I messed about online. We watched the end of last night’s Strictly.

Then it dried up and I decided to go out to Waterperry Gardens. It’s a beautiful place with big bold herbaceous borders, little pockets of intimacy in enclosed gardens, a variety of apple and pear trees in long rows, and other gems besides. The leaves were beginning to show autumn hues, but many of the flowers were purple. There was also an exhibition of sculptures that were beautiful, though a bit beyond my budget.

Two hours wasn’t long enough really, but it fed my soul. And it meant I got home in time to feed my family and, as a bonus, before it rained again. Besides, I’ve got an annual pass now so I can go back to Waterperry again whenever I need to nourish my soul again.
