Nic has business to attend to back in London, so I offer to dog/house sit
for ten days and keep myself occupied.
After a few days on my own, the kitchen began to look like an old time grocers store, with jars of preserved fruits, vegetables and a selection of jams for the winter months.
outside in the sunshine beans and walnuts dry
in the heat of the autumn rays
Dolly pretends to keep guard, but she is really waiting for someone to
throw her toy again. She never tires of fetching things.
as I leave the walnut harvest begins to swell, this is probably a third
of what will fall from the trees in the garden this autumn.
