The dishes have all been washed, the leftovers (such as they are) have been stowed in the fridge, and everyone's back to lecturing or attending lectures, so I used this quiet, sunny, cool fall day to work in the front garden. I cut back the thyme bordering the sidewalk, planted daffodil bulbs, and staked the hydrangeas. Of course, some of the latter have made their way into the house for the winter. Not much point in having these beauties if you don't bring some in to dry.

Only one sleeve left to do on Wakefield. I'm really delighted with the updated fit and can't wait to show it off. In the meantime, here's a view of my button selection.

The celtic knot complements the aran style, don't you agree?
