1st September

 Well, here we go- or rather here we have gone. We're all back to school. New black shoes have veiled their pristine shine with grass. The alarm clock remembers what it is to ring in vain. Timetables are tacked to shelves filling nicely now with folders and books. The season has turned!
 Would somebody with agricultural authority tell my pear tree that the season has turned. A bit of mellow fruitfulness, please. The poor thing is definitely being rehoused soon in a much more sensible spot.
 Can you see the raindrops chatting to the daisy heads? If I was Pom Pom, they would be bathed in sunshine, despite the rain. End of summer in the Frozen North- chilly mornings and evenings, chilly afternoons now too.
 We love our chestnut tree. Look at all the conkers groaning. There will be a carpet of fun soon to cheer them up soon.

 While we worked with the silks on Monday, some Corrymeela volunteers looked after our children. They were so good at finding dreamy things for them to do too. Jo's dreamcatcher is going up to his bedroom soon- as he is rightly points out, that's where he does his dreaming.
We haven't quite decided where my dream is going. Kitchen or book room? Prince Charming says I should hang it where I do most of my dreaming. Tough choice!

Same here in the Virginia, USA was 46F this morning, heavy fog and at 8 a.m. still hasn't burnt off. It's that time of year where a morning sweater is too warm by lunch. Moving your pear tree in Autumn is a good idea; it needs more sun, imo.
The dreamcatcher is beautiful...I do most of my dreaming on my

Brrrrrr! It's already time for woolly things, isn't it? I DO wish I could send you a bit of the Colorado sunshine, Mags.
Jo's dream catcher is lovely and your silk piece is like a holy window!
Love you, good girl!

We were still 90 degrees on Sunday and very hot, but it's cooling a little this week. Mid 80s. I love your silk creation! I dream best in front of the screen ....

I love peeking at your world across the wide ocean, but close to my heart, because it's yours.

Hello my lovely! I thought I'd commented on this but apparently not!
How is all. I am sorry that you need some peace and calm in your house.
Alas, I WAS in Belfast. I didn't realise you were there otherwise I would definitely have let you know I was coming and arranged to say Hi (I met another blogging friend in the Scillies) Sad times. xx

And HHHHHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAa, alarm clocks ringing in vain! Yep, know all about that!
