My favourite season of the year is here and I am enjoying every minute of it. It's so beautiful as all the Summer colours fade into rustic cosy colours. Mountstewart is so beautiful as it is an area that's climate allows for a wide variety of plants and shrubs that have died elsewhere.
Smudge seems to enjoy this time too as not cold enough for her to have her coat on yet but at least she doesn't have to hide in the shade. She loves to roll in the grass and sniff through the leaves.
Today I decided it was so mild it would be a sin to stay indoors so I started with some gardening whilst my butternut squash soup cooked. We have decided to shrink the bed of shrubs in the front garden to make more space for cars as our cul de sac gets so congested. Then it was time to pick my little friend K up from playgroup. Her mummy had her all prepared with wellies ,etc for our afternoon adventures.
Killynether wood was our first stop. K and I had been reading about Winnie The Pooh in Hundred Acre wood so this was as close as we could get. Smudge hovered under the table as we had our picnic. Then it was off to Kiltonga to feed the ducks,geese, swans and seagulls. It was fun and despite the fact K was wilting she was excited about going to the play park before it was time to go home. Smudge was also exhausted and was quick to get snuggled up beside me on the sofa.
Time for me to take it easy back to some knitting and crochet before the ladies arrive for coffee and craft this evening where we are concentrating on some Xmas sewing.
