I like autumn. Autumn is my favourite time of year.
I nipped out of the house in bare feet last week (taking rubbish to the bin or something like that) and the ground felt refreshingly cool. It had that 'nip' that enlivens the spirit and refreshes one's mind. Sun lovers may disagree but summer can be a trial - headaches, weariness and sweat. The wind is nos getting up. Clouds chase the sun and its light flickers incessantly between bright and dull. There's a hint of rain and a light and cheering breeze.
The haws on hawthorn trees are already red. The sky mostly holds out blue.
September! September 7th. Tree Following time!
I'm still about as intermittent as the rain and about as dependable as autumn sunshine but I promise you I'll be back properly in mid-October.
In the meantime . . . the box for your posts is here even when I'm not.
Enjoy your trees!
