I have a friend called Autumn, 2 friends actually, what a wonderful name, don’t you think!
And in other news:
Ginkgo Biloba trees are losing their leaves- I will endeavour to collect them up, before it is tooo late. Acorns hats litter the ground and a sparkly cool undertone to the days freshens my energy.
This is the season for walks, which we did today, up the long drive to a field, where chestnuts have fallen, hidden in their spiky cocoons.
We have missed out, on a bountiful nut harvest, being second to arrive, behind birds, mice and other sneaky quick, forest friends.
The apples are finished, when we left the trees were weighed down by fruit, now, not one remains, not even evidence upon the ground.
To my strangely OVER the top joy, the tomato’s have hung steady upon their vines, only a few dropped while away.
I am ashamed to confess that my unwatered and tended seedlings, did not make it through the 3 week abandoning...
Which is a slight bother, now that India has been postponed, on account of my reluctance to take children into searing heat, humidity and monsoonal rains-
Queensland was enough heat and water for awhile.
Anyway the Himalayan beauty peaks in Winter...
