Got up early this morning and went to the country market.
That was a joy in itself -
after getting all the greens for the piglets and some provisions
I also treated myself to a pot of chrysanthemums in this
lovely bright and joyful shade of red.
Although the sun had hidden, they still glowed
and brandished their golden centres like beacons.
My one and only flowering rose had bestirred itself and was
catching up on lost time over our too dry summer.
Two bright spots in my heart and garden.
Hope there are some in yours too!
