towards the end of summer
This summer has passed too quickly and September is here. I have been lucky to have had a couple of trips away and as often happens, when I arrive home even after only a few days, I feel I have jumped to a new season.
The late summer heather and gorse have been joined by a a few autumnal fungi, this was a striking specimen.
The garden has become untidy through lack of attention during the last few weeks but if you stand back and look from a distance it doesn't appear too bad. Crab apples, grapes and ornamental berries are ripening and with the sun lower in the sky there is a feeling of early autumn.
This little bench is a good place to catch the sun and the geraniums in pots have survived well considering they have missed out on regular watering while I was away.
I have lots of photographs of my holidays to sort out and a recently completed knitting project blocking on the living room floor, I hope to post pictures of both soon.
