28 Aug

On the last Saturday of our official summer (that ends with August) it felt appropriate to unpretetiously celebrate the long, glorious summer that was in one of the most summery of places – a lush garden.

There was squash-day (as in nothing more violent that cooking courgette dishes) in one lovely organic nursery-garden-fairtrade shop-café some miles north from where we live so on another chilly but sunny morning we headed to Växplats Nybyn (literary translates Growthplace Newvillage).

Where we enjoyed delicious vegetarian courgette food and bread, coffee and cake, strolled the huge garden, picked some fantastic flowers in the vast fields for self-picking, bought some courgettes and herbs for a ridiculously low price.

It was some simple but brilliant hours spent there. The wearing, and inaugurating, of another (ahem, shoe sales, people, great shoe sales) pair of El Naturalista Iggdrasil swirl clogs did rather gilt-edged the day too. I love their dark navy blue hue, called cobalto. Which fitted my melancholy last weekend of summer mood of today.
