Is my memory playing tricks, does Autumn normally start in the first half of August?
This morning, I drew my bedroom curtains to be greeted by a blustery wind blowing golden leaves off the tree opposite. I was shocked. Autumn is approaching us this year at a speed I have never known.
Its weird, very weird.
As I left my home I noticed more and more autumn leaves on the ground and yet more being caught off guard to be seen swirling in the wind before reaching the earth.
Its been a very odd year weather wise. Perhaps with all the rain and dark clouds we have had for what seems weeks and weeks, the trees have become as confused as I.
It must be time to search for blackberries and sloes.
