We decided to treat ourselves after working so hard for the last few days so I booked us a table at The Penventon Hotel, just a ten minute walk away. What a delightful evening we had with extra treats of dessert!

Most flowers in our garden as Autumn comes are white so they glow in the early morning or evening light.
We’ve both been painting trellis all day! We have nearly finished, just one more top coat on one section and it can go back on the newly painted wall.
The very sad news of Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death came today. We first learned of her when she was a much admired Law Professor at Columbia University School of Law in New York, USA. My brother was in her classes. Her humanity will be much missed.
A young friend with a daughter about to go off to University is finding it hard (even harder, of course, for anyone in these Covid times than it was for us 20 years ago) but the words of Kahlil Gibran, that I have often read at Baby Namings, is still appropriate for all parents to remember.
Posting cards to Spain for upcoming birthdays, I was able to get the lovely Rupert Bear stamps.
Daughter No 1 who lives near Exeter, has been with us for the day, helping with winterising the boat and then with digging for our new border. It is just so special to have her here – lockdown was hard on everybody.
I have planted up the edible trough for the winter – winter flowering Violas, baby Lettuce plants and some Winter Lettuce seeds under the cover. Still in there are the self sown Nasturtium (for as long as it lasts), the Borage, Chives and the three different Thyme plants.
It’s been a day of wind and rain and stormy weather, the garden getting blown to shreds though no doubt the roots are loving it all.Consequently, I have been indoors doing a bit of therapeutic embroidery, starting on another wall hanging for Christmas.
