Wonderful Sunset

Sky on Fire

Sky on Fire

Day started very cold, trip to the kitchen garden for leeks found the ground quite hard because of the frost. With one thing another garden time has been limited although hopefully the weather will be good for the weekend and I might manage to get time to escape for a while. The one job that has to be done yet is putting up the decorations and trees hopefully once the boys are home this weekend we'll manage to get everything done. I've been reading all the journals on the get together last weekend and am jealous of the good time everyone had but hopefully next time. This wonderful sunset get me outside to capture it and a few photos of colour and flowers still on the go. There is a lot of work to do tidying up and cann't decide whether to cut down the artichokes or leave them as they would look spectacular either in a heavy  frost or snow. This time next week Christmas will be on us and some members will be a year older before the shortest day. My 3rd son James turns 20 on the same day as Jacinta turns 21 again, hope you have a great day.

Lovely sunset - but you would know by that sky that Jack Frost is waiting to take hold.
