Morning inspiration 10.07.13

It's been a rainy weekend here. It's still raining today. There's something awfully cozy and lazy about those grey days with a constant slow and steady spittle of rain. It makes me want to do laundry then roll about in the warm clothes from the drier. Perhaps I could settle in that fresh heap with a good book.

While some lament the end of hot and steamy days, I look forward to the damp cool mornings where the wet leaves stick to every surface. Others may find the spindly spent tendrils and lonely picked over patches in the decaying garden depressing but I love that slow death for revealing treasures new and once forgotten.


  1. I too love the rainy fall days, wish we had more here in Texas!

  2. Autumn is my favourite time of year, slightly cool weather, mists and soft rain, glowing leaf colours of numerous trees and shrubs. For me, autumn is a time of preparation for the cold winter fast approaching, putting things in order, tidying the garden and gathering up leaves. Sometimes long sunny days, pretty cobwebs covered in dew drops, collecting chestnuts and brisk walks in the countryside, followed by a drink at the local pub.
    Thank you nichola for inspiring me with such thoughts :)

  3. Lovely! I've never been a big fan of summer....preferring to relish in the glorious Autumn.
