The weather this week has been gentle...warm sunshine and little wind. I noticed a lack of apples and plums this year. The few plums we have are being enjoyed by wasps. Butterflies are beginning to hide in dark corners ready for winter.
Autumn has arrived. Hogweed seedheads and white fluffy Willowherb are tangled together in the field.
Moles are here too and huge piles of soft soil are along the mown paths. They are a nuisance but I tolerate them and gather up the soil for my plant containers.
The tawny owls are around...loudly calling to each other. I think our garden suits them as they are regular visitors.
