    It’s a beautiful morning ... I was out there as the sun rose, wandering in the garden while the coffee brewed ... its a louche and dishevelled beauty now ... a middle aged femme fatale, spilling over her décolletage and adorned with spidery lines and powdery patches ... the tiny pink and white cyclamen are appearing everywhere, even in the veg patch, scattered randomly like too much diamanté, and the colchicums’ Naked Boys are erupting through the fading leaves in the Wilderness. The espaliered pear is dripping with huge fruit and the squashes are glowing orange through the leaves. I love this season ‘of mists and mellow fruitfulness’ 8-

    Sorry to break your reverie, Dove. 😁

    The odd yellow leaf on my fig tree and the hostas have tinges of yellow.
    In London. Keen but lazy.

    In Ireland we are told that each season lasts 3 months; spring begins in February (which is when the grass begins to grow), summer in May, autumn in August and winter in November...
