Yesterday night the temperatures dropped to two degrees. Yikes. After the wonderful late summer we´ve had it is somehow hard to accept that it will be autumn eventually. So I thought before the first frost hits I´d take a few pictures of my wonderful dahlias... I am so in love with them and am planning a massive dahlia border in my garden next year. Someone please remind me to make it happen in spring?
I also harvested our pumpkins today and tons of basil (freezer is stocked with pesto again!). And yes, I sort of regret to not have taken those pumpkins out of our dirty wheelbarrow for the picture, but sometimes reality has to be good enough.
There´s this dreamy light again. Also I can´t wait for my hydrangea hedge to fill in. It´s been looking so lovely already this year, why did I wait so long to plant them? (Answer: First I couldn´t decide and then it wasn´t in the budget. Story of my life.)
The chickens send greetings too. I love how Florentine (the grey hen) looks in this picture. We lost our white hen last month to a mistery illness. Heartbreak. It´s funny how chickens are such silly creatures and still I care for them so much. Anyway. Happy October to all of you!
PS: It´s German Unity Day today so as usual I´m linking back to this post. Love you, Eastern Germany!
