The nights now are drawing in and there are signs of autumn here and there in the garden. I may have done little else but moan about our lack of summer this year but this last few days has saw a huge improvement on what's gone on in the previous 3 months. For the first time this year it actually feels like summer. Calm before the storm? Who knows!?
|Sorbus Autumn Spire September 2015|
Berries are not abundant, there are no more than 20 on the whole tree. Being a young tree I suppose I should not expect too much. I can see from the window that the Rowans growing wild along the river nearby are a mass of red berries right now.
First signs of reddening of the foliage.
Might there be time for this lot to ripen?
If I aim my camera down behind the plants, you can see there are weeds. I am generally a bit of a weed freak and am usually on top of weeding. I have been guilty of neglecting my weeding duties of late. I am certain Mare's Tail has not been an issue in this area before. I need to get on top of this tout suite!
The mid day sun provides some shadows on the fence behind.
My knees are already aching at the mere thought of a week's worth of weeding. I hope you have something far more exciting and a lot less labourious planned!
