In contrast to last week's dreary day, as I write today a warm sun is peeping through the window and highlighting the garden in an almost autumnal glow. It is so picturesque it does make one wonder – am I ready for summer to end?
In our unpredictable English weather you can never say definitively that one season has moved to the next, but I must admit I enjoy the change when it comes. I could never live in a place without such seasons as ours. Though I may moan as the cold creeps in, there are always new things to look forward too – and new inspirations as well.
Already my mind is turning to the changing and falling of the leaves… My wedding dresses have many a time had lace flowers adorning them as if blossom falling from a tree. Perhaps for autumn I will add a splash of colour and see a sea of leaves adorn the hem instead?
