Believe it or not, this photo was taken in the middle of the day … and so were these:
The rain will be good for the garden, but for today it means we can’t do any gardening.
It’s time to eat comforting autumn food like this rabbit and chorizo casserole, with some of the last courgettes of the season, and a glass of red wine.
This may have been the last butterfly of the summer, in the garden last weekend when we were sowing broad beans and peas.
>The casserole looks good… not so the weather…
>Ah, so I should be sowing my favas and peas soon then… I think I sowed them a bit late last autumn, although they did well. That's ok though because the rain will have softened the ground enough for me to finish the digging!
>A note to say hello…& how perfectly this post captures the changing seasons. Love the images, love your blog! Rain has arrived in Northern California, too. Much needed. Harvested a mountain of tarragon to dry for winter cooking. My favorite herb… a bit of France to scent the house.Best wishes, Aliceaka Bay Area Tendrils Garden Travel
>So much like here. It's gray and threatening again today, and the rain totes are full!
>Rabbit and chorizo? Sounds and looks wonderful! I like all your shots of the rain too.
>Can I have some of your dinner?….because that tuna sandwich I had earlier REALLY didn't do the business! Still raining here, sounds like it feels right at home!
