Country Living Ireland…Autumn work at the cottage smallholding.

Into the kitchen for a warming cup of tea after spending the morning cutting back brambles in a bid to open up another part of the land. Autumn continues and there remain quite a few leaves on the trees.

Missy cat…staring at Jack in a sort of threatening way…The autumn sun shines silver into the sitting room…I love this season for the soft silvery light.

Jack makes sure he stays in his little home in the porch…he knows that Missy is not allowed in without his say-so!

Lime trees have almost completed their leaf drop, feeding the earth for another year.

November has stayed relatively mild and warm, so many of the trees are showing off their colours a little longer!

Manure from the hens has been spread on the vegetable beds…hoping for massive pumpkins next year!

    1. I shall cover the beds with cardboard and more straw to stop the goodness leaching out with rain. Do you apply manure to veg beds, or do similar? I used to add it to the compost heaps, but find this more efficient.
