filled was the air with a dreamy and magical light

The welcome party...
(for the workers)
Bingley and Darcy

It is (supposedly) .. early Autumn here in Oxfordshire, in dare I say, dear old foggy damp Britain...?!!

...But something quite wonderful has occurred!
A most unseasonable warmth and sunshine and HEAT... through morning to night.
... indeed weather record books have been broken!

We all stayed outside till late...

... a glass of wine ...

... some eating ...

... a squeezing of every last drop from a most lovely and surprisingly barmy October eveining..

Bingley (too dark for Mrs H's camera)

"Then followed that beautiful season... Summer....
Filled was the air with a dreamy and magical light; and the landscape
Lay as if new created in all the freshness of childhood"

~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow


  1. How utterly lovely! My dad's still in Italy right now, visiting his brother, and they, too, are enjoying unseasonably warm weather. We, however, are "enjoying" unseasonably COOL weather, and in fact had an "obnoxious" weekend, weather-wise. ;-)
