A few days until the August Bank Holiday and already things are staring to look autumnal.
There are fewer flowers now than in mid-summer.
The hogweed is still in flower
although many have already turned to seed,
the seedheads as attractive as the flowers.
The thistles are over and the thistle down is ready to float on the breeze
and up in the horse chestnut tree, plenty of conkers are forming.
