My Friday letter today is about trying to balance gardening and guardianship here - and about why I registered the land here as an ARK (Acts of Restorative Kindness) as a formal commitment.⁠⁠
⁠⁠
It is also about why I need the kitchen garden and community garden as an outlet for my obsessive growing of seedlings . . . .⁠⁠
⁠⁠
Smoking chimney and fireweed with a halo of haws - November studio.⁠⁠

Teasel is the boss of the house. ⁠⁠
⁠⁠
I said that I was looking for a scruffy, badly behaved, short legged dog, and that is exactly what I found.⁠⁠
⁠⁠
He stamps in temper when I won't let him do whatever it is he has been stopped from doing.  He runs around manically, he torments poor patient Dixie until she plays and then, exhausted, he crawls up onto my knee for a cuddle and that wonderful soft puppy shudder of contentment.⁠⁠
⁠⁠
Off to the vet for jags today.

It has been weirdly warm.⁠⁠
⁠⁠
Poppies and cornflowers are trying to bloom raggedly in the meadow and outside our bedroom window this rose has come to life again with heavy perfumed flowers.⁠⁠
⁠⁠
They seem smaller and deeper in colour than they were in June.⁠⁠
⁠⁠
Is anyone else finding unseasonal blooms at the moment?

One of things I chatted with @eva_nemeth about in Yorkshire a few weeks ago was mess and light.⁠⁠
⁠⁠
I said that I wanted to be able to show beauty without worrying about tidying up around it. Life is messy, time is short . . . .⁠⁠
⁠⁠
Eva said that all I needed to do was look for the light and the mess would be transformed.⁠⁠
⁠⁠
She was right, this was the kitchen a couple of mornings ago, coffee on the stove, light hitting the washing up and defrosting milk.⁠⁠
⁠⁠
Everyday beauty.

Next year the vegetable garden will be free of hens - I'm determined of that because it is a complete waste of time to grow things when they break in and eat it all - but I think that this winter I shall let them wander.  I'm reframing it as slug patrol and fertilising.⁠⁠
⁠⁠
Though I shall harvest all the remaining sprouts first as, from the shredded state of some plants, they seem to be a favourite.

A couple of weeks ago I tried, and failed, to convince a friend that dahlias are often at their best when part frosted and on the way out.⁠⁠
⁠⁠
They stand bedraggled and desaturated, capturing perfectly that slightly melancholy mood of autumn.⁠⁠
⁠⁠
This year I have seen people who have previously loved autumn best, talking about how difficult they are finding it this year. ⁠⁠
⁠⁠
I think it may be that we are not in the mood for more melancholy. It is difficult to embrace the cosy slide into darkness when, for many, there hasn't been much light.

I know that I’ve been choosing more upbeat music to keep me company in the Studio. Steering away from the heartbreak and sadness. Seeking the light.

Planting tulips in the vegetable garden - 12 of each in close rows so that I don’t feel guilty about picking them - and discovering that Yorkshire terriers come pre-programmed to dig.

The hornbeam arch that leads through to the vegetable garden is always a thing of two halves. 

At this time of year half is bright autumn leaves, half bare imploring branches. 

Spent vegetables and fallen leaves, hens and hazel supports. 

November garden. It’s where you will find me today.
