Seasonal Change has begun

September

A bright warming sun and blue sky could fool you into thinking that September is still mid summer.  Indeed it is great to be out and about with the slightly lower temperatures making it invigoratingly fresh. But you do not have to look far for the signs of seasonal change.

Berries are reaching the end of their fruit span and being replaced by Sweet Chestnuts. Thistle, Cow Parsley and Willowherb are setting their seeds and ensuring that it is dispersed widely to grow again next year whilst other leaves are showing signs of the years wear and tear.
