Those Sweet September days when the sun is still warming but you get a hint of Autumn with the crisp, cool early starts. The leaves are turning gold & red... And you have no idea what to wear... Cardigan or coat?, dress or trousers?... I did get caught out in quite a rain shower... One minute it feels hot then it suddenly changes.

The last weeks of Summer turned into glorious sun most days... Beautiful early morning skies & evening sunsets... The start of August was heavy rain clouds. My Summer journal took an unexpected back seat as we've had three major break downs and shocking expense with the car, so we're now on the hunt for a new one. So Ive not visited any National Trust houses since the beginning of August. I will get back to journaling through Autumn though. At least it meant we've been doing some lovely walks.

I've suddenly got into the swing of being creative again, which fills my soul with happiness. I had really been lacking that creative flow... I always find its good for mental health to keep being creative... Mainly, watercolour painting in an illustrative style at the moment ... I've found journaling my Summer adventures to National Trust homes & Gardens has given me a reason to reach for my paints and pens... Its a lovely way to record your day. I love photography too. I do not own expensive lenses and super duper cameras but I try to be creative with what I have, usually just my mobile phone camera these days. So I have lots of photos to work from when I get home and paint.
