Autumn Colour, Dinosaur Cakes and Singing

15 Sep

1    The Tibuchina Urvilleana has buds already though a couple of the leaves have a very Autumnal hue.

2   The Grandbabies in London have had a sad day as has their Mum as the beautiful old cat that KJ has had since a tiny kitten has died. I made Dinosaur cakes, decorated them and boxed them up  and posted them for next day delivery in the hope that the children will be a little cheered by them. I was so keen to get them sent off that I forgot to photograph them in all their decorated glory!

3   After the longest break for the summer it was Singing again tonight and it was just brilliant. Claire has found some more pieces with brilliant harmonies and they are already sounding beautiful – Plovo Barko, a Croatian folk song and Hard Times Come Again No More from 1854.

    ‘Autumnal hue’ it’s here as well, though I pretend not to see it.

    Though my child eyes often get me in the dog house, my adult eyes think your dinos look pretty delicious undressed. Am sure the ‘dressed’ dinos will help as intended. When they’re entwined into the family fabric, the lose of a family-pet-friend is a sad day.

    Now am off to see the sights of Spain.
