The sun comes out in November and suddenly it feels like April. I bring my kids out in the garden to give me a hand and clean it up a bit. We rake leaves from the plum tree, run the lawn mower one last time before Mr Winter will do his graceful entrance. We harvest some beets and baby carrots that later are cooked to perfection as a complement to our fish gratin.
The wild kittens are now comfortably going in and out as they wish to everyone's delight and relief. They are so cute climbing trees (Maya) to the farthest top, hiding in the flower beds (Izzy) and rolling around in the dirt in our newly weeded and nicely raked garden beds. It is a good day and I feel very lucky when I sit down with a cup of coffee to enjoy some hooky time outside before the sun disappears behind the tree tops. Life is good.
PS A big thank you to my Nelly Bo who was the person behind the camera lens this day, taking all the pictures. I think she is a natural behind the camera... (I say, sitting here with a big smug face of pride!!!)
