Well, September is upon us, and so is Autumn. In Dundee the season practically changed overnight, Saturday was warm and sunny but Sunday was cold, cloudy and windy.
Our contributor this week is Poppy, and we’ll be putting up the next chapter of her story; The Marsh of Adventure.
I did ask Stef what she would be posting and her answer was ‘either my trip to Bourne End or September Flowers,’ so you’ve got one of those two to look forward to.
I’ve got a choice also, between reviewing The Ship of Adventure and Naughty Amelia Jane. I’m torn between finishing the Adventure Series reviews before starting something new and just going ahead with Amelia Jane seeing as I’ve already started. Well, I’ll decide in time to write something I hope!
In case you missed it yesterday, Stef has posted the first chapter her full-length novel The Missing Papers: A St Andrews Mystery. It features Blyton characters Julian Kirrin, Sally Hope and Darrell Rivers at university along with David Morton from the Lone Pine books by Malcolm Saville. I’ve read the whole thing (no I won’t tell you the ending!) and it’s fabulous, so do check it out!
To stick with tradition; here are some of my latest photographs.
All except those in Balgay park were taken just outside of Dundee, all on my walks along the old dismantled railway line that ran from Dundee to the village of Newtyle from 1830 to the 1960s. I barely saw another soul on the walks and occasionally found myself looking over my shoulder in case a spook train should suddenly come tearing along behind me (running on spook tracks of course!)
Anyway, enjoy the week and the start of autumn (unless you’re somewhere that’s just starting spring, if so enjoy that!)
