The meandering thoughts of a modern-day hearth witch.

Summer is drawing to a close..

...and I am making the most of the late harvests in the garden.

I have sweet tomatoes...

...a veritable jungle of runner beans climbing my wall... abundance of peppery rocket in my tub...

...and lots of spinach and beetroot too.

I'm so thankful for these rewards for my first efforts with my little garden.
I have now watched the seasons turn full circle in this place where I came to rest. It is lovely to see the difference from this time last year, when the soil looked barren and empty as we moved into autumn.

Now, as the days draw in and the mornings are spiked with an autumnal chill, I am warmed by the knowledge that I have made things work in this past year. My garden, my job, my relationship have all been fruitful and these thoughts are the store which will keep me going through winter.

It is sooo good to pause and reflect at this time of year... an opportunity to celebrate our 'harvests' broughts home: the rewards of our toil, patience and nurturing too.
Wishing you much joy and many blessings to come.

That green tint bleeding out of my words are not a reflection from the wonderful greenery in your post, oh no, it is pure envy! Good envy, but envy nonetheless, I want a veggie garden!
