The Last Hurrah!
Yesterday evening, after a productive day clearing the garden and greenhouse of spent tomato and cucumber plants, your GINbloggers felt a very real tinge of sadness that summer is drawing to a close. A feeling the gardener gets every year after tearing up plants which, throughout the season have been nurtured from seed to seedling: from feeding to weeding, pruning and tying in …
But it was a lovely, still and quite balmy evening for the end of September so, at the disgustingly early time of 5pm – before the temperature started to plummet – I insisted that we have our Last G&T on the Gin Decking, our ‘last hurrah!’ for summer; the first summer without our beloved dog Josh, whose ashes are under his favourite spot to watch the world go by.
Despite that sadness, now is the time to light the fire, look for the hip flasks to keep out the cold on the touchline (mine might be filled with a warming marmalade gin – perhaps Aber Falls, which reminds me of our old ginger cat). Then also pick those plump sloes, make green tomato chutney, and just enjoy the beauty of autumn – there’s always something to look forward to.
For GINblogger, we plan to run more competitions, tighten up our website and SEO, and maybe put together a book for next Christmas – good times ahead!
