Soft September days.

 A friend called in today.     He brought Autumn veg from his allotment.    Is there anything nicer than sharing your produce.     I gave him four large hardy Fuschia.
 I love September.     It is my favourite month.   It is a soft month.     A nostalgic month.
 I was married in September.      In fact, today is our 47th wedding anniversary.
 Poppi was born on this day 12 years ago.        Our best  anniversary present yet.
 How the years fly.           


Mr P and I took ourselves to Rye for the day.
We lunched in the Mermaid Inn.   The building is 600 years old and has a reputation for being haunted.
Whilst we did not see any ghosts, lunch was fabulous.
The setting atmospheric.     It is said that Shakespeare visited the Inn.

I had a wonderful day with a wonderful man.

  3. Such a gorgeous selection of photographs, and I do agree with you, there is something special about September ...
    It's obviously very special for you and Mr P - happy anniversary wishes.
    We visited Rye some years back now, a lovely place for lunch and a 'mooch' around the shops ...
    Happy Birthday Wishes to Poppi too.

    Enjoy the month

    All the best Jan

  7. You lucky lady, those veggies are gorgeous and I imagine taste as good as they look. I would love to find a hardy fuchsia. I wonder if they would grow in my climate? I have one hardy begonia. It is always a lovely surprise when it arises late in spring. It is now blooming.
    I wish you and Stewart a very happy Anniversary. 47years is something to be proud of. You two have worked so hard to be together and still happy after all these years. Fabulous!! Gary says Happy Anniversary too! It sounds like you had a perfect day! I like September too. My daughter Carrie was born this month. :)

    1. Wonderful veg Lisa.....I am so enjoying eating them:)

      The fuchsia I grow will take to around -10C I do not think they would survive in your zone. I would be interested to know if you did find one which would survive.

      It was a wonderful day Lisa. we had such a lot of fun and I was spoilt.

  8. A belated Happy Anniversary! We will celebrate our 48th in November, and Beckie and Steve will celebrate their 50th at the end of October. Where does the time go?? Your garden looks so lovely. I am happy, too, that autumn has finally arrived. We had some summer-like temperatures in September, but I think that is finally over. I took two of the grandsons to a local pumpkin patch yesterday and brought home a trunk full of pumpkins to decorate--now it really feels like fall to me!
