A friend phoned last night and asked "When do the leaves change colour". I said, "I believe they are in full colour around the middle of October." She said, "I've noticed they are starting already, have you." "Indeed I have," I said. She then said, " I was on my way out from the city today and saw this and almost broke into tears.....summer hasn't come yet." Alas, she's right!
Yesterday afternoon the sun did break through. I hardly knew what to do with myself. It warmed up quite nicely and I saw that there were some bees around. There's been such a lack of bees this year that I wonder how this affects next years. Normally the garden is buzzing with them.
A pretty flower.
Freya enjoying the warmth and sun.
Chicken enjoying the bit of sun.
Today promises to be quite nice so I'm off to finish painting the outside of the house.
