All roads lead to Autumn

I'm sorry we've been so terrible at posting on the blog.  Life and work has somewhat overtaken us.  I will be back properly very soon.  In the meantime, some photographs showing something of what we've been up to since we last posted.  The last time we posted it was still summer really, and now we are most definitely into Autumn, my favourite time of the year...

Finally finished my patchwork picture!
Watching the leaves change
A much needed holiday in beautiful Cornwall
Bought a new (old) vase
Helped with the church Harvest festival flowers

Made even more green tomato chutney

Harvested a pumpkin, some hazels and a glut of runner beans and tomatoes from the garden

Made amaretti biscuits

Walked through the mist

Lit our wood burner for the first time!
It is such  a wonderful time of year, the leaves change colour, mornings are often misty and are getting cooler each day.  Although the outside world is often frantic and busy, autumn is the time for being at home as much as possible and enjoying the change in season. 
The Danish have a wonderful word 'hygge' which basically means cosiness but sums up how I feel about Autumn.  It is tough to translate, hygge means creating a nice, warm atmosphere, being comfortable and cosy.  Lighting a fire, burning candles, eating and drinking with friends and family, contentedly are all part of hygge.
