Hello dear reader, Rufus here, got my paws on the laptop to write a bit about what's going on.
Autumn already, mornings are dewy and cool giving way to beautiful warm days. We have had some lovely hot weather but not enough for Polly to say it's been a great summer.
Autumn means blackberries, and Polly has been gathering loads for a blackberry and apple pie and a delicious crumble. I waited patiently on the lead each time while she picked them, it seemed to take ages. She kept saying what a good boy I was, and she did give me a few blackberries, and a few tasty morsals of cheese :-) I was hoping she wouldn't be picking any more because she doesn't think the red ones will ripen now, but she was checking them out this morning!
In the country
Back in the spring we had a lot of humid rainy days, which resulted in lots of fungi.
These look pretty
As for this one, well it's just rude, it smelled disgusting, and had flies all over it.
Crops have been harvested
That's a mighty impressive machine
fields are being ploughed
This field smelled lovely after the grass had been cut
We've seen a few trees with numbers on them, I think they are going to be felled.
In the garden
this hollyhock grew to about 10 feet
Isn't this perfection
A house we pass regularly on our walks had lots of childrens toys outside with a note saying "please help yourself". Polly thought this was like a cute mini version of me! It hasn't got any beads on it, or anything dangerous. I don't chew things though, I just collect them and keep them close by.
In the village
The cream teas on the church lawn have finished. There have been six throughout the summer, raising money to reburfish the church. It hasn't been the best year weather wise, three had to be held in the church because of rain. Polly baked a couple of cakes and helped out serving.
And finally, a bit of fun
|Where's my dinner, no seriously where is it?|
Be safe and well
