The vines which cover the outside our house have turned into a sea of burgundy and red, which creates a dramatic contrast to the mellow gold and rust foliage of the plane and chestnut trees around.
It seems like no time at all that I took pictures of our market in summer, but here we are.. the seasons have changed and so has the produce on offer. Pumpkins at this time of year always remind me of the many Halloween pumpkins I used to carve, but with a 6ft teenage in the house, the festivities now evolve mainly around food, and so it is pumpkin soup instead (for a recipe, you can follow the sweet potato and carrot soup, substituting the carrot for pumpkin)
The essence of autumn... can't wait for the first mushroom risotto of the season (hope DH reads this .. his are so much better than mine!)
The grey sweater I'm wearing today I bought at the very same market in 2012 for 10 EUR. I've been wearing it over and over since and looking out for the vendor many times. I've never seen him again, until today! This time I found a slightly shorter version in just the right shade of blue, and again for only 10 EUR. I'm so thrilled and hope it wears as well as its grey cousin!
