My world this week, weather was cooling down but now is very wet and windy, some evenings the fire has been lit, darker evenings are here, hot meals to plan, a wet dog to dry, watching the landscape reappear as they harvest the maize.

Wishing you all a warm and comfy sofa to sit on rather than a park bench.

What an ironic comment old Nap made - he was one of the most power-hungry leaders ever to rule.

As ever lovely photos, Blu.
