|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|

|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.
