Gardens dreaming of summer fruit

After a long, drowsy hot summer here in Cornwall we are now at the edge of September.  This morning as I fed the hungry fish in the pond I breathed in the leaf damp, mellow air that announces Autumn.  I love the transitions of all the seasons but the richness of the change from August to September fills me with joy.  Rich red berries on the Rowan and Hawthorn against the crisping dark leaves.  Apples and pears not yet ripening but full grown.

September always feels like new beginnings to me – memories of the start of the new school year perhaps – fresh work after the dreamy slow summer.
