Signs of Autumn

I know it’s only August but it looks as if an early autumn is on the cards … look who’s popped up all over this garden during today …


Love them 😊

    Yes - I noticed a few odd ones in the front border at the end of last week. 

    The neighbour's silver birch is busy dropping yellow leaves all over the place too...

    That's how it is with Cyclamen hederifolium, flowers first, leaves later. I have some out though I thought they might be delayed by lack of rain.

    Yes, it’s as @nutcutlet has said… the leaves don’t appear until the flowers are over 😊

    On the tree lined walk up to the high st earlier I noticed the pavement had a good covering of leaves.
    As I rustled through them it took a moment to reconcile what was going on.
    Still not a drop 😥

    My heds have just popped up too. I noticed that the blackberries in the park seem to be having a rough time - all dried out.

    Clematis Alba Luxurians  is gearing up to flower too. ☺️

    My clematis freckles (winter flowering) is throwing the odd flower out now and for the last month. I'm not sure if that's massively unusual but I've never noticed before.

    The local woods have a decent leaf little now but that's from the trees dropping their leaves to conserve water rather than an early autumn. I don't think we will really get much of an autumn here because things will just shut up quickly and drop what's left.
