Autumn!

We’ve had such a warm, bright Autumn so far.  It was a bit of a surprise the other day when everything was covered in mist.

Now I’m going to bore you with lots of autumnal photos.  I’m on Instagram but I haven’t worked out how to use it or what it is for, you see.  So here they are.

Happy All Saints Day!

It’s quite atmospheric this morning, the mist has come off the sea and the foghorn is going.  I never knew the difference between fog and mist – my husband once said that it depended on whether you were inland or by the sea.  However, my good friend Wikipedia says that if you can’t see at least a kilometre ahead, it is fog.  Otherwise it is mist.

One result of this fog / mist is that I can see all the spiders’ webs on the railings.  I must give them a clean at some point.

Would have been good for Halloween

The pumpkins look rather soggy this morning.  In a few days, I will put them on my compost heap.  When the children have stopped being fond of them – yesterday my son sang songs to his pumpkin so it may take a while.

There's a reason you only carve pumpkins on Halloween itself
