It has been a lovely summer, but Autumn is moving in and the sky tells us the cycle of the year is with us already. The children are back off to school and quiet has descended on everything.

It has been quite a while since I have written a blog. Various things have kept me away, including the garden and our beloved new kitten, Dora. We have also had such good weather this year, it seemed rather a shame to be indoors.

The garden has come along nicely. After the loss of a lovely original Lime Tree, six newer trees were planted about ten years ago and are now a good size. Some of the apple trees died away too, all very old. The various trees are wonderful to our very naughty new kitten Dora. She is a close companion and, like all children, has great fun in getting into mischief - in her case, climbing high up trees. Our ladders are getting rather a lot of use these days as she often requires a rescue...
