Late Summer Days



An Indian summer has settled into this corner of the world, and March feels more like February.  Everything that grows is wilting and papery, and the crammed tomato plants, (over planted in case a few died at the hands of an over enthusiastic novice crop producer, none of them did), in our raised vegetable bed are beginning to resemble something from The Day of the Triffids. I think that I love this part of the year best, there is something so still and calming about the quality of the light, life seems to move more slowly somehow and I feel thankful. Time enough to walk through the days, to plan winter craft projects, and to design jewellery for the chilly days ahead for we Antipodeans….and some multicolored fripperies for the parts of our planet moving into Spring.
