We have been experiencing some unseasonally warm, sunny weather - what a treat! It has been glorious - at least 5 days of uninterrupted blue skies, sunshine and warm temperatures.
Autumn is nudging it's way back in and by mid week we will be back to the temperatures expected for this time of year - so we have been making the most of the sunshine and have spent most of our time out in the garden this weekend.
We have taken advantage of getting all the bedding washed and dry,
and picking the apples before they drop off the tree in the autumn winds.
The grasses are nearly over but the tips remain green and
the tree is still in leaf, although it won't be long before the leaves turn and fall but with it, leaving a smell of candy floss as they fall.
The very last sweet peas which are still in flower,
have now been picked and the delicious scent enjoyed for one last time.
So it is farewell to Summer but what a way to say goodbye and hello to Autumn.
