Today has been cold and wet! So cold I decided it was time to do ‘the change of wardrobe’. I put away all the linen shirts and trousers and put cashmere jumpers into the draws and, (I can hardly believe this) I actually put one on and I’m not too hot. The weather continues with its strangeness.
This morning I picked lots more of the crimson zinnias and gave them to a friend. I wasn’t sure what to pick today but the Aster ‘Monte Cassino’ was looking so pretty I decided to use that again, this time I found the very last stems of a sunflower hidden among asparagus stems and some Cosmos ‘Pink Sensation’ – these are the self seeded ones, they flowering quite well now and the stems are wonderfully strong with multiple buds. As foliage interest I chose The flower heads of Thai Basil, which are also lovely crumpled over cucumber or zucchini salad.
The flash has changed the blue Asters to pink in the above image.
What’s the weather like with you this first day of October?
