I’m delighted to be able to join in with Cathy’s meme „In a vase on a monday“ today. Yep, I had to cheat a little and take the picture yesterday but what harm! Make sure you pop over to see what other bloggers have put in their vases, always a delight!

Ode to autumn

Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness,

Close bosom-friend of the maturing sun;

Conspiring with him how to load and bless

With fruit the vines that round the thatch-eaves run;

To bend with apples the mossed cottage-trees,

And fill all fruit with ripeness to the core;

To swell the gourd, and plump the hazel shells

With a sweet kernel; to set budding more,

And still more, later flowers for the bees,

Until they think warm days will never cease,

For summer has o’er-brimmed their clammy cell.

  • John Keats

Happy and mellow autumn days to all of you 🙂

  1. Oh a most exquisite illustration to accompany Keats’s ode Annette. Sadly those warm days are beginning to cease although the honey bees are still on the wing. I was sorry to read that you are still having problems commenting via WordPress on my blog 😦 I’m giving serious thought to moving over to WordPress if I have spare time on my hands over the winter.
