The Remains Of The Summer Flowers

Remains of balcony flowersAlthough most of my balcony flowers are still in full bloom, I don’t have much hope for them to last as it’s been raining for days and they get drenched and too much water. I hope this awful autumn weather will go back where it belongs. It’s still summer, after all.

Above picture just shows the “natuaral debris” of plant care. My gardening friend once told me to head off dead blossoms straight away as this would make the plant grow more new ones. It seems to be true.

And even this debris looks beautifully colourful.

Freezing Summer

…or at least its fruit.

Sometimes I’m all enthusiastic about making stuff for my food blogs, get the supplies in, and then either don’t have the time or can’t be bothered to make anything.

Frozen Raspberries 01It so happened with these raspberries. I got two large punnets at the market because I wanted to make a raspberry buttercream cake. Then I was so busy with my decluttering project that I didn’t have time to make something that elaborate.

Frozen Raspberries 02So I decided that instead of overdosing on raspberries I would freeze them, laid out on the low top shelf of the freezer one by one instead of dumping them in a freezer bag and getting a lump when defrosting them.

Goodbye, Summer…

If you live in the Northern hemisphere, like me, summer will soon be over. I was thinking about how many months of the year we spend looking forward to summer, and then all of a sudden it’s over even though it feels as if it has just arrived.

Which in turn made me think about the things I will miss once autumn is here, so I decided to do this little “Goodbye, Summer” Series. Although I will make sure to wear, eat, drink and do all the things I will be missing while summer still lasts and just ignore the fact that this last week looked more like autumn is already upon us. And I’m still counting on a gorgeous Indian Summer.

What will you be missing once summer is gone? Or what are you looking forward to if you live in a place where summer is just around the corner?

I basically wear flip flops around the house all year round. But the feeling of wearing them outside in the sun is something completely different. And I’ll miss it…
