Had a morning in the kitchen, I like to use this time to mull over ideas for new designs - literally cooking time. Made squash and lentil soup, my own recipe which is a movable feast, plus Yotam Ottolenghi's Squash & Tahini Spread, one of his recipes in the Guardian today. Lovely day, warm and sunny - the garden has an autumnal glow, tall white Japanese anemones, acid blue petunias, dusky hydrangeas, golden black-eyed Susans and bright orange nasturtiums amongst the red/green of the turning leaves - an absolute riot of colour. Last night it was warm and balmy till midnight and felt like summer had finally arrived! Hope it stays a while.
PS After I took the picture of the soup I dropped the camera in it - caused a bit of a splash!
