We are waiting for fall. We had a bit of a glimpse last weekend with some lovely night time temperatures but as usual for us in September, we are waiting and know we must be patient just a little while longer. I found some pumpkins yesterday and as always, they were irresistible to me. I always pick them out based on the shape of the stem. Just putting some on the hearth helped me forget how hot it still is outside. Is it bad that the thing that attracted me most to these plates was the word “solstice”? I like the sunflowers. I like the textures. I like the colors but it was that word that made them impossible for me to resist.
Slowly, I am bringing a little bit of autumn inside – changing the quilts on the beds, filling the lavadera with bits of leaves, gourds and pumpkins and there was even some soup made. So we will try to be patient, though we never are. We will enjoy the sunflowers, look for the changes in the light and hope that the changes in the temperature are not far behind.
