Autumn 1

Wednesday, 15 October 2008 15:25:23
So far I've got words like dreary, misty, murky, drizzly and downright rainy. But that's based on walking the streets of Sheffield on a rainy morning. Before that we had a couple of days of really clear skies where the colours of the leaves on trees really stood out. The acer is losing its leaves fast now and there's a great pool of reddish brown crinkled leaves underneath. Crab apples - like little red marbles - are littering the front path and the leaves will soon be joining them. Lots of plants are still in their summer green and some - like the roses - are putting out new buds. Summer growth needs cutting back. There are long waving arms of unpruned fruit bushes and ornamental shrubs; the old raspberry canes need cutting out and everywhere needs weeding.
