Its Monday, the classical wash day...and yes it is October, very nearly the end of the month, and the clocks have just changed.
I have put a large load of washing out to dry, the sky is blue, the sun warm, bumble bees, honey bees and hover flies are out on the blooms.
We have had no frost yet, so here is my sunny vase for this Monday. A new old vase from the charity shop, dark with brown with some nice green and black glaze 'dribbles' from the top. Ideal for a handful of blooms 'stolen' from the bees...Helenium Sahins Early Flowerer or should that be renamed And Late Flowerer too, Rudbekia goldstrum, nasturtium, and golden feverfew.
Just in case you feel that all this sunshine is lulling you into a false sense of time, since this is the first work day when the clocks have changed, so to Cathy's page for the antidote...Moody Blues. I think she is thinking of the song though, rather than Winter Blues which some of us suffer from.
