We had an especially lovely Poetry meeting this afternoon as our hostess, W, has a very Special Birthday coming up shortly. Secretly we have managed to buy her a piece of silver, which she collects. Friend S also baked a super cake (which had mashed pineapple and mashed banana in it and was delicious) so, apart from the poetry it was all a huge success.
The poetry, as usual, was varied - some serious, some light-hearted. J, as usual read her favourite Betjamen; we had a good laugh, a lot of lovely poetry and I am sure we all came home having thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
The Autumn colours are just coming into their maturity here in the Dales. This is the Rowan tree I can see from my kitchen window. Hopefully, over the next few days. I will have more beautiful photographs of our magnificent Autumn colours.
