The Garden in October (and some tea)

Garden decay

Posting more photos from the atumny garden today, hope that’s okay with you? Notice the bokeh in the photo above? :-)

Today I started to listen to a new audio book (in Swedish) and I want to continue listening right now. I just poored myself a cup of herbal tea and will soon be laying on my bed, sewing a crochet project together… Mmm! So not much time to write right now.

The book is called The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini. It’s a extremly strong story that from the first words touched me, and it feels totally like the right book today. It’s about a little guy growin up to be an author and even though his writing is secondary in the beginning (and his friendship and betrayal of a friend is in focus) I’m reminded how much I love to read about other creative people. &hearts – I love love love reading a good novel. So that’s what I’m doing with part of my week. I’ve already finished Once Upon a Day by Lisa Tucker. It’s a magic read too, you should definitely read it! I don’t know about Houssini yet, but Lisa could definitely become a favorite author!

Anyway, here are some photos from the garden;

I don’t celibrate Halloween because we don’t in Sweden. But I did fall in love with Dia Los Muertos a few years ago. I’m thinking about doing something at least this year… Maybe as a participation at the Dia de los Muertos in Bloglandia!? What about you, will you dance for the dead or make a sugar skull this year?

    Thanks for stopping by Hanna!

    Beautiful the photos. I am wondering if the yellow flowers are St. Johns Wort/Klamath Weed is another name.

    Are the berries edible?

    God Bless You and Yours!!!

    lovely photos! I will be working on Halloween, but my son is “too old” for trick or treating, so I won’t miss too much-when I get home I hope to get him to watch a good Halloween movie on tv with me(and I will bring some candy for us to pig out on too:) that is one of my fave things anymore, getting him to just come out and watch a movie with me(when I CAN get him out of his room) I hope whatever you decide to do that you have a great time!!

    are so talented
    at many things!
    those photos are wonderful.

    and i have read the kite runner…
    it was a very good but sometimes
    hard read…emotionally hard.

    have you seen the movie?
    for once, they did a good job…
    usually, i find the movie
    is always such a disappointment
    if you have read the book,
    but this one was well done.

    These photos are stunning. I have a few favorites already.

    I have read Kite Runner, good book. I love good books and snuggling up with a hot drink and a good read.

    Thanks for your lovely comments!

    no idea what the yellow flower is called (it’s on a bush), but the berries are said to be edible! I haven’t tried.

    gkgirl, you’re too kind! :-)
    finished the book now (in tears) but haven’t seen the movie. Thanks for recommending it!
