    although I’ve got loads of flowers in my tubs, plus Cosmos and sweet peas , not yet flowering , loads of late flowering roses , I’ve got loads of leaves fallen from my two trees in my little garden!   Don’t want autumn yet, need to still feel the sun on my face .  Rain today plus it’s chilly at 12 degs.  Need a flight to somewhere warm!

    Fresh morning here, but it then turned hot again, beautiful blue sky all day long, but the wind is just starting to turn chilly again. And just 30 mins ago, a solitary brown leaf dropped into the pond and it really felt as if that was the first of the fall. Leaf fall, not using the American term for Autumn  here, though the term has more significance in this thread I think.

    I think they are dropping early because it’s been so dry, some trees have had brown leaves for weeks now.  :-(

    The trees have been slowly changing for a few weeks in the UK, we have a Hawthorn in the front garden that is well on it’s way and dropping lots of leaves.

    I too have been noticing for a few weeks now that some trees and bracken are changing colour, which I thought was a bit earlier than normal. Having said that, the leaves from our poplar trees normally fall in August but this year they are only just now starting to drop.

    I’ve also noticed that there seem to be an abundance of berries on  trees/shrubs.

    I love the early autumn days, especially when they are warm and sunny and mellow.

    We’ve had 3 deer feeding in the garden over this last week (its a bit overgrown at the moment  :-( ) at dawn and dusk. Its beautiful to see them so close.

    Lippy

    How lovely to have deer in the garden we don’t have much wild life here (apart from me sometimes)!  We have dragonflies on the pond and frogs but don’t see many birds and have only seen 1 hedgehog and 1 squirrel in 16 years.  But loads of butterflies. We are in the countryside but the  fields are all being ploughed up for mais.

    It’s not autumn yet.  Autumn doesn’t start until 23 September.  I don’t take any notice of the “meteorological  seasons”.  For me winter is 21/22 December, spring 21/22 March, summer 21/22 June (or thereabouts).  :good:

    Haven’t noticed any leaves dropping in any quantity, did see one solitary forerunner float slowly down from side to side onto the grass from the walnut tree this morning, but the petunias are leggy, mostly with one or two stalwart flowers clinging on until the death at the end of each leggy stalk, the tomatoes almost done, the large ones with just a couple of green fruits determined to turn red before I uproot their feet from the earth, and the few of the miniature plum variety that remain are still showing great stoicism hanging in there and ripening each day, runner bean leaves have decided the season has finished and are turning yellow so, after the last few beans have been gathered, they also will be uprooted and the vegetable plot will start to look bare and ready for the autumnal preparations.

    This must be one of the most gorgeous autumns we’ve had in years in Selby. Glorious colours on the trees which have only just started dropping their leaves. Magic! :good:

    I was back in my woods yesterday putting a temporary plaque next to cockneys cairn so hoping to keep any vandals from causing it harm when they realize that it is a grave. Anyhow the long sunny days throughout this year have created a stunning mixture of colours in my woods,it was quite emotional saying goodbye with all that extra beauty.

    I shall be doing some work on another woodland that I manage down in the var on the south coast at the start of January and that shall be strange as it is not decidious and stays green throughout the year. The only downside with being down there at that time of the year is the forest of mimosa that grows there is in full flower and not only is it ridiculously stinky,but its pollen is a bitch.

    Still lots of good wild mushrooms around with the wet ground and the dark nights. I have found about a dozen decent mushrooms over the last couple of days and have not even been looking.

    vive l’autumn xx
