The last days of summer
It's raining here in Crouch End -- dark sky, heavy cloud, sodden grass, dead leaves on the pavement (why are they falling so soon?). But at least the garden has been thoroughly drenched, and my potted geraniums are thriving.
I've been tending to 'Coco' in London for the last couple of days -- hoping and trying and almost certainly failing to tie up the loose ends before publication -- then nipping back to Scotland for the weekend, before the start of term next week. Anyone who wants a slice of my lemon drizzle cake should come to the garden opening at Tillypronie on Sunday afternoon; hopefully there will be other treats, including some excellent homemade scones as well. As for the promise of sunshine -- well, if anyone happens to know any Celtic blessings or charms to summon up blue skies, please do say them now...
