Alas alas our Summer who was not really a Summer is starting to show the first signs of Autumn. I don’t like Autumn, the colouring of the leafs is pretty, yes, but it means we have to say goodbye to ALL flowers as they all die with the first frosts. And then the long long wait starts for the first signs of Spring which is given by the snowdrops, sometimes it is in January but this year it was February.
At the moment we are enjoying another 3-day mini Summer and it feels sooo good. Eating outside, sitting outside, work a little in the garden…..the birds are singing, the bees are buzzing, I can hear the frogs in the pond, there is a little bit of wind so that it is not too hot. This morning I gave all my plants a good drink and I can see they are gratefull.
Here are a few pictures.
