Autumn is here?

This morning, walking across the garden to feed the pigs, I would have sworn that it was October.

It was beautiful - the valley was hazy with cloud the hills rising above it, all the plants glistened with water droplets and spiders' webs.

It was beautiful but there was no way that it was August.

Saturday was HOT. I fear it may we have been the summer.

I am making things for Christmas photoshoots so I fear I have brought it all on mysef!

I know exactly what you mean - there is a melancholy in the air, which so autumnal, despite the sun and the fact that it's only August - our vine has shed it's leaves in despair!

Still roaringly hot here in East Anglia, no sign of autumn yet just thunder storms on the horizon.

As I hate August I will be very glad when it's gone, but mentioning Christmas gets you a black mark! Saying that even I mentioned the 'C'word to Stella this morning......

Lovely photos Shakespeare said 'Summer's lease hath all too short a date' but let's hope that it's not over quite so soon.

I was out just the other night putting chooks to bed - and I looked around and there was that damp chill you get in early Autumn - often it can be hot during the day - but you just sense it in the early evening - much as I love Autumn I find the idea depressing this year having had no summer to speak of yet.
