It's been a long time, unintentionally. Or rather, with the best of intentions — 'write blog post' written on my to-do list every week for, well, four months now.

Summer was lovely, but is sadly, I think, officially over now. It being October and all. And this glorious sunflower took a nose-dive shortly after this picture was taken and is currently lying face-down in the rain. Which has also, officially, started.

More later, though. And paintings.
