Autumnal Procrastination.

So after three gloomy and rainy (not complaining about the latter) weeks we finally got plenty of that glorious autumn sun today. It is always quite amazing what a difference that makes! There was no frost yet and it´s still pretty green around here, but the garden does look quite autumnal already. 

I need to take down the hammock and rake those leaves and generally put the garden to sleep. I am so behind with everything it´s no joke. However if there´s a season to procrastinate in the garden it´s autumn, right? No need for perfection any more, very freeing. 

So instead of doing all the things on my list we went on a walk with Ludwig which was a great decision. 

Obiously. 

Right?

I mean. 

Sigh.

OK I´ll stop now. But seriously, autumn is just so pretty around here. I love where I live.  

Bonus picture! Still doing things with quinces. I made Earl Grey and ginger infused quince compote today (this recipe) and some jam and last weekend when a friend from Berlin visited we made a Tarte Tatin with quinces (this one) which was so so good (seriously if you have quinces on hand please do me a favor and make this). However after today there are still about 20 giant quinces on my tree. So, quince recipe ideas anyone? Do tell.

Wow - so schön! Bei uns war leider schon Frost und die Bäume sind hier und da doch schon recht kahl. Der Oktober war leider erst auf die letzten Tage hin golden.

Und... Quittengelee - och, was lieb ich dich <3 Haben wir hier ebenfalls gemacht (bzw. Mama hat gemacht und ich hab gegessen).

Eine schöne Woche!
