Jolly Brolly

Well, there has been a lot of Autumnal talk about hasn't there?
Here down the Lane we like to think we are having a last late Summer Fling in these swirly warm days!
There are certainly leaves on the ground but there are roses coming around again too!
Time to Jolly the brolly and lunch al fresco!
and then as the sun goes down and the early evening light turns all pink and magical, time to imagine what the fairies will get up to in the garden whilst our backs are turned
I am dusting off my red cape, like Vianne, in Joanne Harris's "Chocolat" and hopping up to the smoke for a little Liberty indulgence...... back soon with my floral tales!
Have a lovely week x


  1. What a lovely post. I love the thought of the fairies coming out from behind some mushrooms and start dancing around the farden.
    I like what you have done with the bunting around the parasol. Have fun at Liberty, lucly girl. I look forward to going there in the Autumn. Look forward to your floral post.

  2. I used to want my ashes sprinkling in Libery's basement I loved it so much!!! Look forward to seeing what you buy!!

  3. 'Oh' you are such a teaser!! I dream of the bright lights of that strange and magical place called Lon Don - you lucky, lucky thing. Please do tell of your travels whence you return.

    Have a lovely time and make sure you spend 'loads'
