Back from the country living fair

I just got back from the country living fair, and as usual it didn't disapoint, lovely fair, lovely christmas scents, lovely people :)

Autumn is there

The nights are getting colder, but the days are quite warm. Yesterday the grapes harvest have started here, and my village that is usually so quiet is buzzing with people. In the champagne region the grapes have to be picked by hands, no machine there.
I am completely immersed in christmas stuff, working three months ahead as usual, and I just would love to skip work to go outside... I really have to force myself to stay anchored to my desk and work, one of those days hey!

The days are shortening, time to forget the garden for a while (still so much things to do before winter though). Even though I seemed to have disappeared from the virtual world, I am still going modeling clay every single day in my studio,which needs a good clear out too !
The little newbies are in the shop right now.

The carnations are in !

I love carnations, I know they had a bad press for along time , I am thinking of the long-stems- crying-out-for-some-love at the petrol stations ones , these ones are garden ones, the short, pink very smelly ones, love their peppery smell!

In the garden

I am spending lots of time in the garden right now, and the rest of it I am making fairy cakes for the next exhibition which will be at the RHS flower show in Tatton park . I won't be going on holidays this year, and the most exciting trip I will take will probably be a shopping one around Manchester...But I am very excited just as much as I left for holidays in Italy last year ! I love garden shows, because I can shop too for my garden. And mine is still a very blank canvas except for the wendy house I set up for my daughter a couple of years ago, I though she would be thrilled, she very rarely goes in there...she prefers to climb trees ! But she does enjoy the garden too in her own way !
